Hi Guys, had a diesel "leak" repaired whilst my alternator ( 300c CrD UK Touring ) was getting replaced recently. Leak involved the right angled hose which sits on the upper offside or drivers(UK)side of the engine block just behind the oil filler cap. The garage which did the repair replaced it "economically" with a bit of "straight" hose and bent it to fit to the two metal stubs which sit at right angles to each other. Since getting the car back I found it difficult to start after it had been sitting overnight (although "hot" starts were ok). Was taking five or six prolonged turns on the key to fire up.
Decided after some deep thought to fit one of these BLUE SILICONE PIPE FUEL & OIL ELBOW 90 DEGREE 9.5mm | eBay - which Grumpy Bob spotted - and its sorted the problem. Obviously the "bend" in the "straight" pipe was restricting the fuel flow.
The bonus was - the new "right angled" hose is supplied overly long on both legs and if you are careful when you cut it to size you get a couple of sufficiently long spare bits - one of which will also replace the adjacent similair hose which is supposed to be a 45degree bend - but this does the job very nicely.
One thing to be aware of, which I recall someone else mentioned in another thread, is the lower of the two stubs involved here is a slightly larger size ( nice one Chrysler!! ). The original "Chrysler" hose is marked 10mm x 11mm but the new "blue" hose with a quick immersion in boiling water for that end slips on ok. The hose clamp for that end then needs to be the next size up (15 - 20???) to suit also. Getting the hoses off and on was made easier by loosening off two of the star drive bolts holding the securing brackets for the metal fuel pipes - one between the cylinder banks and the other below the oil filler cap. Taking care in how you align the hose clamps when you refit them will ensure you have access afterwards for tweaking them up once the star drive bolts are replaced. Nick

Are these the pipes that go to/from the fuel filter? The fuel filter input/output stubs are different widths, presumably to ensure correct connections.

Hi yes Devilmaycare, they are the two stainless type pipes running across the lower middle of the attached pic from the filter ( under the large turbo intake pipe and toward the red mesh covered pipe/cable at the left side. http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/9770/98392016.jpg
I follow the philosophy of having different sized pipes to avoid wrong connections but then why put a "reduction" piece into the middle of a pipe run? Maybe it was two different designers who started at opposite ends of the pipe run - and met in the middle - late on a Friday afternoon?? Cheers Nick

Probably the same two who were responsible for locating the swirl motor and alternator!

Hi, classic case of putting foot in mouth - no, the new fuel pipe didn't cure the problem with starting. A night in my mate's warm workshop for the car after replacing the pipe and a good start the following morning fooled me into thinking it had cured the problem. But, a night in the cold following that had me back at square one. So, onto my potential alternative cause and into auto electricians for stint on the diagnostic thingummyjig and lo and flaming behold!
Fault codes as follows:-

P1649 glow plug module power supply circuit,
P0672 cylinder 2 glow plug circuit,
P0671 cylinder 1 glow plug circuit,

U1132 lost communication with generator,
P0562 battery voltage low,
P065A generator system performance,
P065A generator system performance.

So, 2 hours labour, 6 new glowplugs ( thought it best to stick them all in while they were in there anyway.) and 4 new "pins" for the control module and she is starting a treat again.
They replaced the pins from their own stock as the originals over time had enlarged their fitting "apertures" in the module through heat/cold expansion/contraction and were causing a duff connection to the timer element of the module and thus no heat to the glowplugs. Total cost of the pins - 6 - as opposed to a new or recycled module at ????? seemed a bit of a bonus.
The lower faults were a reminder of my failed alternator of two weeks ago and not connected to this prob. So, whats next???? Nick

Hi Paul, as I understand it from the auto sparkie they are "connecting" pins forming part of the connection between the glow plug control module and the "plug" on the cable taking power/signals to it. A bit like the brass pins on a 13amp 3 pin plug perhaps? I have to admit I did not get sight of the actual items under discussion so that is my interpretation of what he told me! Regards Nick

Hi also to Royliz, re your problem. Dunno if you saw the post from Olly57 on the "new member introductions" of 28/10/2012 re his prob with Deisel Fuel Pipes & Alternator and the new pipe from the dealer at 75!!!!! (Sorry - I haven't figured out how to "drag in" someone elses post as part of one of mine yet! )
I wonder if the dealership would be equally as resistant to you supplying the "cheaper" hose for them to fit. Although I just remembered you said you were lucky enough to be under warranty still.
I take it the dealers you are using are not very far from a major bus/coachbuilders? Their Service desk rep Charlie Codona has always been good to deal with in any dealings I have had with them. Nick
