hi folks

I'm looking some advice and hopefully an easy resolve to my issue.
I ran out of diesel and took ages to get the van running.
After running and a full tank of fuel the glow plug light was flashing and the van is low on power and revs.

Any help appreciated

Have to get that one on VCDS to see what codes it has.  The 130 doesn't usually suffer much from running out of fuel having PD injectors (unlike the newer 2.0 common rail engines where HP pump damage is a possibility).  Maybe it dragged something up from the tank.  I'd check the codes first and then change the fuel filter.  It's worth using one of the one of the fuel treatments you can use to fill the new filter up with.

they can throw up a code for non start and go into limp mode, it may reset after a drive, if not code reader and see what it throws up, although are you sure it ran out of fuel ?
