My Transit won't start

My 2006 diesel Transit was running OK, then I stopped driving, left it a couple of days and now it will not start. Has the fault code P1361. I have had the EDC unit on, the fuel pump checked out ok, swapped relays around in the fuse box but cannot get the pipe off the feed to filter to manually prime the system.

Not sure how you are getting the P1361 code, as it does not appear to compute to Diesel engines.
Given that you have not got a useable fault code would suggest that all fuel lines are checked for damage /tightness, check the fuel filter, check the FRP (fuel rail pressure) sensor. Then check the CKP (crankshaft position sensor).

You may want to find a more suitable diagnostic tool to give you a correct fault code.
