    Hello everyone,

    I am in need of help with my 1994 C220 Diesel.
    The engine cranks over fine, but fuel isn't reaching the injectors...

    I need a workshop manual, I came across the following website: https://www.emanualonline.com
    According to the website, the manuals are official workshop manuals that the dealer uses.
    Has anyone purchased manuals from this website before?
    Or Could someone recommend another website?

    I would appreciate it very much for any help on the issue that I'm having with my Mercedes.

    As above air leaks will make starting difficult.
    If you remove the fuel filter is there any fuel in there?
    Replace the fuel filter and in line filter (if there is one?) and refill the main filter with fresh diesel.
    There may also be a strainer mesh filter in the tank which may be blocked.
    Are your glow plugs working ok as it is getting colder now. You can tell if one or more is out if your glow plug warning light stays on after an engine start. Was it doing this prior to your current non start situation?

    crank sensor maybe not chatting to ecm ,commanding fuel solenoid open /diesel flow/start? if you squirt a bit of petrol/at the death easy start into the inlet ,does it try to fire run ? if so run thru the fuel system tank to rail i guess that should generate a fault code ? someone will be along who knows.

    Fuel pump in the tank probably first I would check? Can you hear it running when you switch on ignition? Best to get codes read, might give more of an indication?

    The injection pumps (Lucas) on those 94 c220's are poor and don't last long. You will have some fuel pipes (and seals) around the engine you can replace, the pump has delivery seals which are also easy to change, else I would guess the pump. Start simple though
