Hi Henty, I did have similar problem and then found that when the diesel filter was change they did not change the o-ring with it. Then the system loose pressure and get some air in the filter and the pipes. If it is not the o-ring the system might get air from a bad pipe connection or hole in the pipes. Check it and let know.

Fuel problem

I think I found the problem of no fuel in the filter after the car was parked over night
The atmospheric valve in the filler cap of the fuel tank was blocked causing a vacuum in the tank which suck the fuel back to the tank from the filter when the car was parked

I strip the filler cap and clean it and will see what happens now this morning there was no problem

Thanks
Greatings

There was a suction sound when I remove the filler cap

Cap was full of dust and strip cap and clean with brake cleaner
