Hello!
My 2007 Gulfstreem BT Cruiser wonít start.
It ran fine, parked it & now will turn over but not start.
Canít get anyone local to look at it.
Any suggestions will be appreciated!
Iíve done obvious things, installed new battery, replaced fuel filter, & checked fuses.

What engine is in it?
Have you checked the fuses?

Thanks for responding!
Itís a Mercedes 3.0 Diesel
Iíve checked the fuses
Installed new battery
Installed new fuel filter
Checked in tank fuel pump
Fuel is coming from high pressure fuel pump but donít know pressure as I donít have a gauge.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I’m not familiar with the 3.0. I’d google that engine and see what comes up. But did the fuel filter “bowl” actually fill up, is there a drain? Did you close it? Did you change the filter before or after the no start?

How did you check fuses? If you’ve been cranking it, I’d put the charger on the batteries.

Thanks for your response.
The fuel filter is a self contained unit.
There is no drain. I purged after installation.
I checked the fuses by using a volt meter.
The new battery stays on a trickle charger.
Best regards, Rob
