Need some help please.

I have a 2004 L200 that I've had for many years and has always worked well.


The other day she started to lose power and kept cutting out, but would restart and allow me to drive a little further before cutting out again. The diesel was low but not out (no low fuel warning symbol illuminated, although bulb could be blown). I did a mini service (new oil and oil filter, fuel filter and air filter) and topped up with some fuel.

I got a good 25 miles no problems, and I then parked her up until last night. She took a few cranks but fired up and no problems maybe driving her 6 miles or so.

This morning she took a few cranks to get going, but again no issues. I went and topped the tank up a little and carried on my journey which was only a short 1.

On my way home she started losing power again and would cut out. I went to the fuel filter and the priming plunger was sucked down and on unscrewing the water drain you could hear air entering almost like a vacuum had formed. No fuel was running out of the water bleed until i pressed the fuel primer a few times.

Any suggestions for a fix or to diagnose would be great.


I've another matter relating to the front wheel drive activation. But this is the more pressing matter

Sounds like a blocked breather in the fuel cap. As fuel is sacked out of the rank air needs to get back in to replace it otherwise a vacuum is created as you describe.
