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.

Nissan terrano 2.7td. starting problem


Glow plugs are the answer to cold start problems.
Check that they work using a multimeter if you know how.
Otherwise connect a jumper cable from the hot terminal of the battery to the glow plug bus bar..be very careful not to ground the lead in any way to the head while doing this.
If the engine then starts easily with little smoke, the problem is with the relay or the timer of the glow plug circuit.

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

1992 F-350 Dsl - very hard to start when cool


are you using cold temperature engine oil!
if not, try changing oil for cold temperature!

hard starting happens due to the cold temperature, air pressure is low during this season so compression inside the engine is low resulting to hard starting!

make sure that all your glow plugs are working.
