Clem, you didn't say, but your car may have a fuel injection system, and in that case, this article speaks to the morning difficulty problem and the diagnosis:

If it is a carburetor, then here's the article for that morning problem:

Hope this helps! Brad

You will have to loosen the serpentine belt. Loosen the bolts holding it on ( could be as man as three). Pull it out (may require some encouragement with a tap from a hammer) Yank it out and replace.

No. engine mounts, electrics, ecu, axels and a whole lot of other stuff would need to be changed and cut and welded.even after that you could have a host of other difficulties. not an easy task for even the experienced engineer.

I have a Citroen Diesel ZX19 Turbo. It is Very hard to start when cold and takes a two or three goes to start when hot.I have replaced Glow plugs with Bosch ones from a Citroen dealer only a month ago plus...


Did the poor starting coincide with the cambelt change ,as it sounds like you may have a camshaft/fuel pump timing issue.If the pump/camshaft/crankshaft are not locked in place when you change the belt they can easily move a tooth or two.If the problem didnt coincide with the belt change then it might be a fuel problem.

3lt diesel hilux 2002 (5L-E engine, non turbo). when i slow down the oil light comes on and the gear shift shakes like the vehcile is about to stall. doesnt happen every time, maybe 1 out of every 5 times...


85% of the diesel engine problem is the fuel system. and rest 15%, if met, is a major problem. you have to check the filter. and make the fuel line solid. means no air in the system.

Im trying to compare fuel consumption on a hiace 3ltr diesel turbo to a regius 2.8 ltr petrol


if both engines are in good condition, with the same driver, I would say that the diesel would have better mileage especially for highway travel. You may maximize this further if you utilize the turbo, meaning relying more on the turbo rather pressing the throttle.
