SOURCE: Nissan vanette not starting from cold

My vanette had exactly the same problem yesterday. The glow plugs have a timer and a relay. I think that if the light on the dash goes on and off as normal then its probably the relay not the timer. So I have replaced the relay (£50 nissan dealer only) which is located in the center console below the radio/heater controls. Until its really cold again tomorrow I wont know if its really cured it but I'm fairly certain that will be it.

SOURCE: changing glow plugs in a 1997 1.8 ford escort diesel van

Hi Patrick.

I would check that you are getting a live feed to your glow plugs terminals first, on cold starting, with a 12v test light.

Expensive to renew them, and then find it was the fuse or relay !

Best of luck !
John.

SOURCE: vauxhall vivaro wont start cold

Sounds like a faulty cold start assistor. On top of the engine you will find an aluminium housing with four things that look like glow plugs screwed into it. These 'glow plugs' are only available complete with the housing fron Vauxhall. Approx £70 +
Airbag light is probably a fault with the seatbelt pretensioner.
Check the wiring under the seats for damage or perhaps the plugs have pulled apart.

SOURCE: peugeot partner wopnt start replaced glow plug

what voltage u getting ?. did it just stop and then not restart. if its getting fuel and glow plugs are working the next two items id look at is the cam shaft and crank shaft position sencors. also make sure ur battery is in good condition, so starter motor is turning fast enough to build up the correct pressure on the rail.

hi from uk from the symptoms you describe this sounds like the engines heat/glow plugs are not working to optimum it only req's one to be at fault to result in poor cold starts then starts ok for rest of day ? could you please check the colour of the exhaust smoke next time when engine eventually starts from cold ? if it is heavy blue/black for a couple of sec's this too is classic sign of glow plug/s under par so replace each cyl's glow plug not too expensive and you can diy like renewing spark plugs if you come back with info asked above? will be glad to assist further also considering age of car and possibly these g/plugs origional ? they are/may be due for new replacements hope this helps you can purchase from most good motor supermarkets or factors instead of dealers often cheaper ? best wishes from n/west uk

sounds like a bad sensor. the glow plugs should stay on long enough to reach a certain temperature, especially when it's cold. So turning off after 1 second is not nearly enough. There may be a problem with sensing the temperature of the glow plugs.
