Unhappy urgent help voyager03 crd

IT WONT START!!!!!!!!! it will however start with the brake cleaner, but thats not good for the engine, i know. yes i changed the fuel filter. the computer says no faults. hovever today for the first time the computer showed me P1130. i already spent 1500 and im exausted. please help

The fuel pump is outside the tank not in it. Is this pump running? sounds like you covered most. All that comes to mind is the fuel return off the rail. Remove the small return pipe off the rail and crank or start it, there should be no fuel coming out the rail as it's a high pressure relieve.

Hi
Ok the metal pipe coming off the pump on the engine goes to the high pressure rail. This rail feeds the 4 injectors. On the end of this rail is a small rubber hose. Pull off this hose and block the hose (not the rail) with something to stop the fuel. Then crank it or start it if it will and look for fuel coming out of the rail, there should be none. If there is then the rail is faulty and not holding pressure.
As for the pump by the tank, look next to the tank you should see it next to it. It's a round pump about 4 inches wide and the fuel filter screws on the bottom of it. Ignition on and you should here it run.

if the rail is faulty would that prevent it from starting only but once its runingit would run?the mechanic said , at the begining of his dignosis, that its the crank sensor because when he unpluged the electical wire to the fuel injectors and placed a plastic sesor that ther is no electric signal goin to the fuel injector telling it to opperate. what is your input or theory on that dignosis. he said that ther is no electrical signal commendin the injector to work. please help any thory would be appreciated.

Hi
OK alarm fault you would have the red SKIM light on in the cluster.
Yes if you have no fuel coming out the rail maybe ok, obviously if there is no fuel getting up it can't leak back. It's just a good quick easy test to do.
Now as to your mechanic he just doesn't understand the vehicle he is working on. Until the fuel pressure in the rail gets up the injector don't inject so you wouldn't get any signal at the injectors.
