    I had the same problem, It is the priming pump which is letting air into the system. I replaced the filter and put an electric inline pump so when I needed to prime it I could

    Thanks all for your input its given me some new directions to follow, Bitsathis could elaborate on the type of pump you fitted and what did you replace the standard filter with?

    I had a terrano for a couple of yrs. I remember reading they were prone to fuel lines corroding. Fuel hose is pretty cheap, run a new fuel hose from the tank [ i think you get at it under passenger seat or a cover in the back somewhere] to the engine

    Fitted clear lines replaced primer pump and filter with one off another car.....no change drive for a couple of k's then it dies , Ican crank it for 30 seconds and it coughs and splutters and starts or i can get out and pump the primer. Starting to feel like its the injector pump thats the issue, sad as its not worth spending any more bigbucks on the old girl. Will try clear hose from injector return line but im not feeling confident. The bloody thing will sit and idle perfectly for an hour but if driving you get 5 minutes then its over

    Don't scrap it yet, I don't think it is the IP. Sounds like a restriction in the delivery from the tank causing it to suck in air somewhere when using higher amounts of fuel. Time for bypassing tank altogether, tie a Jerry to the bullbar or put in passenger footwell. Take a hose from jerry directly to the ip thru a small inline filter. Leave return alone for purposes of the test. Report back when you have done this.
    Edit
    I now see Tony has already suggested this.

    Are you thinking there is a restriction from tank to injection pump....what would cause this any ideas anyway will give it a go mate cheers but it may be a few days as work commitments take priority keep a look out.. thanks. could fitting a cheap inline pump as Bitsathis has suggested be woth a shot I can get one pretty cheap locally. Thanks fellas for your help I have a soft spot for the old car and I would hate to have her end up in the scrap yard

    Is the IP mechanicly controlled , cable from accelerator, or electricly controlled VF zexel pump, throttle position sensor and black plastic box on top of IP withwires going to it.?? If its electronicly controlled it can be one of several sensors or bad connectors.

    dagwill, I am pretty sure it is a mechanically controlled IP. I can't recall for sure but I have an impression it is an inline pump.
