Check there is no air in the fuel line. there is a bleed valve on the injector line. has a plastic cap on it. push it in till the air is out. and only fuel comes out. you will need to prime it a few times so air out the turn on ignition and repeat doing this till just fuel comes out then mop up the fuel that is on the engine dont start engine till its off..

SOURCE: 04 f250 diesel cranks but won't start

this is an oil pressure problem, either a sensor is not sensing enough oil pressure, or the high pressure pump is not building enough pressure(possibly leaking or head is leaking). this engine requires 450 psi minimum oil pressure at the injectors to actuate the injectors.

SOURCE: problem with opel zafira. driving along car

The garage you've taken it to must be incompetent if they knew of your fault and failed to locate it.

Modern engines are effectively computer controlled robots, so the fault you describe may have a number of causes. But from experience the most likely cause is either a loose wiring connector, a chafed or fractured wire or a failing ignition coil pack. Of those, the coil pack is most suspect, especially if the fault tends to appear only once the engine has warmed up. If you find that the car starting is difficult on a hot engine but fine when the engine is stone cold then it further suggests a failed coil pack.

Testing the coil pack properly means it must be tested under full load and that needs special equipment. In practice, the easiest test is to substitute a suspect coil pack with a known good one.

Please note that I stress the phrase "most likely". My suggestion cannot be a guaranteed solution as I have no access to your vehicle and cannot perform any diagnostic tests.

My opel vectra 2008 diesel is Hard to Start when left for a period of time.iw will start when turned over a couple of times and with alot of white smoke from the exhaust.


If it doesn't do this when operating at regular intervals, I wouldn't be overly concerned. White smoke is normal for cold diesels, as long as it is only at start up and stops when warmed up. You may have a pump starting to lose its prime though. That would account for having to turn it over a few times after it has sat for a while.

Why the diesel pump nissan hardbody is not getting the power


DIESELS DO NOT START FOR ONLY 3 REASONS.. 1. not getting fuel. 2. Glow plugs not working.. 3 major engine damage
1. air in system.. like you ran out of fuel, Fuel filter clogged, lift pump not working, no fuel in tank, Bad fuel. .. 2. glow plugs..check the wire at the glow plug to see if it has power. If it does not check the relay and fuse. glow plugs usually do not all go bad at one time. 3. major engine damage.. you would normally notice this by the noise the engine makes or it would not turn over..

2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 diesel (turns over but won't start)


Check and make sure your glow plug controller is putting out voltage to your glow plugs, make sure voltage to your glow plugs is cycling. if it is not, at the front of the engine there is a temperature switch, if this switch is not working your glow plug controller will not work. also make sure you are getting diesel to your injector pump, if you are not, there is a high pressure switch at the back of the engine right behind the glow plug controller, if this switch is not working, your injector pump will not get fuel. also make sure both batteries are fulley charged, if one is low, your diesel will never start. you can jump out these switches, if your truck starts after bypassing, just make sure to replace them. i have a 1993 silverado C3500HD 2WD. good luck!

I have a 2004 excursion diesel drove it all day stoped at a clients turned it off for 20 min came out and wont start the starter is going but its just not firing could it be a fuse I dont smell fuel but I...


Ok well the glow plugs on a diesel have nothing to do with the engine firing. All the glow plugs do is heat up the combusion chamber on cold starts. Diesel engines fire using high compression. An oxygen sensor won't cause the vehicle to not start and your diesel doesn't have one of those anyways. It could be a fuel related issue. (pump, line, pressure etc.) Have you it scanned for engine DTC's? But based on your knowledge of your diesel vehicle i'm going to suggest you take it to a shop.

Wont start in morning


Hi if the car is a diesel engine then you need to repalce the glow plugs these are used to heat up the diesel for starting the car from cold once the car has been run or if the temp is not to cold then the glow plugs dont need to all work and it will then start.

The problem points to the glow plugs if the car starts ok when it is up to temperature if when the car is upto running temperature and then still has trouble starting then the problem will be with the diesel pump itself. If its the pump and not the glow plugs then this could be an expensive repair.
If its the glow plugs then these can be brought relatively cheap and are not to much trouble to replace if you have done this type of repair yourself.

Let me know if your car is petrol or if you need further assistnace then i will assist you further ok

Car not starting


Only thing is Diesels dont use spark ignition. Most reasons for failure of diesels to start is in the glow plug system. Usually just replacement of all glow plugs is sufficient but could be deeper. If you know what your doing you can give a small spritz of starting fluid in the air cleaner and it will start and stay running usually proving a glow plug problem. But please be warned a small spritz. Too much ether can damage a diesel engine. Hope I helped. Thanks
