Question about Holden Apollo
My Apollo 1991 wont run it has fuel and is turning over at the key but it just wont ignite and run? Ive cleaned the spark plugs and it has made no difference. It use to cut out for no reason in the past but that was only after sitting a day or so without use? I thought maybe it was a fuel problem but the tank is full. Can you tell me what you think it maybe and what i can check or do to get it running ? Thanks Jon

you have a sensor acting up on your motor have the code read at any shop for about $25 and they will tell you exactly what sensor is going out and needs to be replaced

It sounds like you have a security problem, I had the same thing it would fire and run for half of a second and then that was it if anything at all. Had the security system rebooted, now it starts and runs fine.

You generally only get white fuel smoke from a diesel when one or more cylinders aren't firing. If it were injecting more fuel than can be burned into a cylinder that is firing you'd get black smoke. You can get gray smoke from a cylinder that is firing cold or late, but blue obnoxious smoke is more common with late injector pump timing. Dirty/failed injectors also generally make a rude blue smoke.
Run a can of Diesel Kleen through it. If you can't get it where you are call a local truck service and ask what they recommend for cleaning the pump.
Check and keep watch on the oil and coolant- white smoke from a warmed up diesel is usually coolant that is getting into the combustion chamber, typically from a failed head gasket or cracked head/block.
If you see any oil floating on the surface of the coolant, or if the oil starts to look milky, this motor must be serviced and the issue found or it won't last long.
