Looking for a bit of advice. I have a 1997 t4 2.4 diesel and it won't start. The van turns over and turns over but just won't kick into life. I cracked the injectors and called it over and don't seem to be getting any diesel. Can anyone suggest where to start?

Fuel supply and return pipes from the fuel filter to the injection pump often crack with age. Also the return pipes between each injector deteriorate with age. Worth changing those first.

Check the shut off valve on the pump see if there is live going to it
Run a electrical lead from the connection straight to live to see if it starts.

As mike said - check you have 12 at the start solenoid. not only with the ignition on but also when you crank. If in doubt rig a wire direct from battery to solenoid.

You should hear an audible click when 12v is applied to solenoid - if not it's goosed.
