a stuck EGR valve, dyno the vehicle and fix the EGR, (exhaust gas temp dropped from 650deg due to exhaust gasses constantly being fed back through the engine to 480). Fuel economy back is to normal.

Hi james, you might have air in your injection system. ussually this air pocket could be corrected by bleeding the system; or, your fuel filter is clogged. First the filter, if your fuel filter is directly attached to a hand pump, and your filter has a sendimentary bleed port at its bottom, drain this first. Then, after its drained, close the drain plug. Next is to look for the fuel return bolt on the injection pump(usually it has a "out" word etched on it) and usually uses a 17mm hexagonal head. Loosen the bolt and slowly remove it. Take care, and watch orientation of the two copper washers that are used for gasket. You might also find a filter screen attached to the bolt on some injection pumps. Anyways, if there is no filter screen, re-screw in the bolt(remember the copper washers) but do not tighten it just let it loose for a while. Now for the sweaty part, using the hand pump, pump  the fuel in until the return bolt spits out fuel. You will see bubbles on the first few pumps but do not stop until it bellows out pure and clear fuel w/o bubbles. If you attained the goal, stop pumping and screw the bolt shut. Wipe-off excess fuel from the injection pump. Try starting the engine. when the engine turns over let it warm up for a while the with, again, with your no. 17mm open wrench, try loosening the injector feedline one at a time(while the engine is running).Watch out for squirting fuel, your engine might rattle a little but it will be fine, just let the fuel flow a few seconds then re-tighten the nut. Do this on all 4 injectors. Let the engine run a few minutes then shut it down. Let it completely cool down then re-start it. Also try checking glow plug(or heater plug) condition. If one glow plug is busted replace all 4 at the same time with the same brand. this would help to keep the engine attain a 1-click engine run.

Hope this helps.

My 2004 Diesel Kia Sorento takes 18 seconds to cold start. OK when hot. I have changed glow plugs and checked them. Injectors seem to get to pressure. Computer shows no errors. Battery is new and turn


is the air intake clear , new filter nothing squashing the intake pipe, how long does it take for the glow plug light to go out once you've turned ignition on ?

Toyota hilux 3ltr diesel,i put new glow plugs in about 3 weeks ago & it fixed the starting problem going fine.now it just started not starting when it is cold checked wiring has power to glow plugs...


Double check your fuel filter and replace as necessary. Also replace your coolant temp sensor. I would also pull out each glow plug and bench test with heavy cables and make sure they do glow red. It very well could be a couple of the glow plugs have failed due to quality. Let me know what you find.

I have a ford escort 1.8 diesel car when its cold its really hard to start i ahve changed the oil and glow plugs and fitted a new fuel filter any ideas any1 ?


Dont try to start the car when the yellow heater sign goes off, wait for about 10 to 15 seconds after , or until you hear the heater plug relay click, then try.
On a lot of cars , the yellow lamp goes off after a very short time , yet the plugs are not hot enough and the heater plug relay is still working.
Hope this helps

I have a 1994 2.8ltr Diesel (4M40 Mtr), Delica, that conks out


try changing all the heater plugs there are warn out by now,,if it realy dont like starting up on cold days do what i do,,, give it twice the heat up time,,,,,
turn on the kye wate till the heater light go's out then quikly switch it off and turn it back on for a re-heat before trying to start it up,,,also try changing the glow plug heater relay,, it should hold the glow plug heaters on for about 30 seconds after the light has gone off even if the engen has started and is running
but i bet its not doing this? giving twice the heat takes less out the battery than cranking it over and your not wearing out the starter as well?
doing this to my old girl gets her going every time!!!!!

Fail to start from cold


check the two glow plug relays in the small fuse box behind the big one.(i know it has no glowplugs but the relays controll the heater) they should be 12 v. or connect a jump lead from the positive terminal on the batt to the foremost connection on the heater. leave for 10-15 secs then start. if it starts the relays are shot. 20£ each from a kia dealer

2.0 litre 2002 wont start


hi from uk just a couple of questions ? as car is now with this cold starting?? when engine does start do you get blue/black heavy smoke and engine has a slight hesitant ? then smoke clears ? engine runs ok? and no problems starting for rest of day ? if this sounds like the problem you have? then this is the glow plugs that arenot working at optimum you only need 1 or 2 poor and engine has trouble cold starting may i suggest you first check that when you put ign on there is power reaching the 1st glow plug at least? if ok this will eliminate relay and fused link? these glow plugs must glow white hot from tip upwards you can change these diy with a little patience and are obtainable fro most motor super shops here in uk anyway hope this helps?and inspires you? please update on how you go on? or if you req further info ?
