2000 tdi when cold tick over very lumpy and smokes when warm its ok it starts first time no problem?


Not sure what "tick over" means. Suspect it is hard to start when cold? Could be bad glow plugs. They "warm" the cylinders to get them up to temp before starting. It could also be that you are not waiting for the cylinders to warm up. I have a 2009 tdi. It has a light on the dash that goes on when I put the key in, but I have to wait for it to go out before starting the engine.

Engine will die after warmed up


depends on what you mean by "warmed up". If you mean engine reaches normal working temprature and works normally then cuts out , but restarts wwithin 5 minutes and then carries on working normally until it cuts out again, and then restarts withing minutes...have the throttle position sensor checked. It may be that you have a warning code on the dash?
It might be the pedal position sensor alternatively.
If your engine works ok until fully warmed up this may be the problem.
If there are any symptoms before the cut out happens can you please add the details and repost thwe query

2001 2lt grand vitara. When engine is hot it sometimes will not start until engine has cooled. Also very lumpy if it does start, any ideas please


lumpy is misfiring. that be it.
ever do a tuneup this decade? even spark plugs?
the above implies it runs great cold. and running long distances
but if parked it has what is called in the business, heat soak, hot restart failure.
ever use scan tool. and plug it in (after a tune up) and see if there are
DTC errors.
and when wont start, TRY WOT , that is , wide open throttle cranking
per opr. guide, this clears flooding. does this help. it?
did you examine spark tips to see if fuel soaked (flooded, or jet black)????? check for spark , yet?
when dead.
lots more, ....

My 1993 Ford Festiva 1.3L occasional engine hard start, sputters on start up then runs fine, but sometimes has a slight "cut out" on gentle acceleration, problem clears up but comes back at lower speeds....

Sometimes not always - puff of smoke when starting ( light colour) followed by lumpy tickover and noisey clacky sound from engine - all becomes ok when warm


I suspect smoke is just condensation in exhaust from suiting overnight. The other descriptions sound like it needs an oil change (noisy clacky) and lumpy starting sounds like dirty battery cables - clean them top and bottom. ??- When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters? I'd start there.

I have 2.8L VR6. It runs OK when its cold, then


This could be all sorts of things..probably not the fuel system (it is VERY reliable, unless someone starts tinkering with it). From you broad description it could well be an ignition fault. I take it it gets lumpy as it warms up, so (in order of cost) replace the plugs (insulation breakdown), the plug leads (buy one long one and move it round the system). If you are loosing water, you may have a gasket gone.

VTEC 1.8 135K. Starts OK but feels lumpy from cold - almost like its not firing on all four. Once it warms up a bit the tickover when stationary drops to virtually zero (sometimes stalls), once fully warm...


1. My suspicion is your electronic ignition
2. If your car is a bit old, there might be a leak through your valves
3. Distributor timing gear is damaged (replace)
