I m having problems to start the car espeacilly in the morning i hve to crank hard , it start to pick up slowly i dnt to rev , because if i do it cuts engine wat cold be the problem .

So many possibilities, but I'd guess a fuel pressure problem. Before starting it next time turn the key to on for a few seconds, then off, then on a few seconds, then start. If it starts better you have a weak fuel pump or the fuel pressure is bleeding off somewhere.

Hi there?
It sounds like the injectors are blocked. the reason i say this is because the bottom of the tank is full of durt and it must have got through when it was low in diesel.

Good luck.........

Hi, I have a 2005 Audi A3 1.9 tdi and turbo on the car blew up few weeks ago, car had to to be toed home. I got a brand new turbo installed 2 weeks ago and this morning car has gone into limp state and...

I should think that, if the mechanic did not install the turbo correctly, you would not have been able to drive it for two weeks before something went wrong.. Have him scan the computer to find out what the problem is. Whatever caused the first turbo to blow up is probably causing the current turbo problems. At least this time the computer has prevented a total failure. Give the mechanic a chance to find out what is happening.

1999 nissan terrano diesel turbo is lacking power , brand new fuel pump and comp chip installed and has run like **** since, has been put through comp diagnosis but no fault showing,(is very slow 2 pickup...

Possibly the "Mass airflow sensor". I had a similar problem, basically the car behaved like it didn't have a turbo and was really slow. Unfortunately the Mass airflow sensor is expensive, about AU$800. Only failed once several years ago. Hope this helps.

Clem, you didn't say, but your car may have a fuel injection system, and in that case, this article speaks to the morning difficulty problem and the diagnosis:

If it is a carburetor, then here's the article for that morning problem:
