After some help please. Just bought a 1991 2.4 5 cylinder diesel and I've noticed the choke lever doesn't seem to do any thing. When the engines running and u pull it in and out the revs don't change? Watching under the bonet as u pull it it is connected to the diesel pump and the lever does move?

Any thoughs? Pub talk someone said they didn't even think they had chokes.

I've also posted a query about air in the fuel lines, maybe the two are related, of anyone can post some help with that too. Thankyou

It's not a choke. Its a pump timing advance, to aid starting in very cold weather.
The engine note shoud be slightly more 'clattery' when this is operated.
