Fiesta 1.4tdci just put diesel in and now won't start

Asked by Mar 04, 2018 at 03:55 PM about the 2009 Ford Fiesta + 96CV 3 porte

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2009 tdci
Car was going fine last night , was low on fuel so used my
other car and got fuel in a can from the garage , put the fuel
in and drove it 2 miles and it stalled , wouldn't start again
with the key so I tried it with a short hill start in 2nd gear , it
fired up ok with a few knocks ( lime diesel knock ) but the
knock went away from it after a few secs, car drove fine for
a few miles but had to keep the revs up at junctions as it
was trying to cut out at low revs , got as far as my drive and
the knock came back again & she stalled again even
though I was trying to keep the revs up , she just died,
wouldn't start again with the key !  Would anyone know
what the prob is ? Dirty fuel etc ? Someone suggested it
might be air in diesel ?
