Question about Cars & Trucks
Despatch was running fine then 1 morning wouldn't start.Initially presumed had battery problem so tried new 1 but still won't start. The engine turns over, although sounds a bit sluggish, but won't start. any ideas pls?
Fuel delivery, probably.
Try the following - remove the airbox and spray some starter fluid into the throttle body while someone else cranks the engine. If it tries to start up/run for a few seconds, then you know it's a fuel problem. If it doesn't change anything, then it's most likely a spark issue.
Check the plugs/wires/etc for fouling.

check/clean battery terminals, if ok check starter wires for voltage(while turning key to start) and tightening or corrosion. If all check out ok replace the starter. If you have no voltage at the starter check your relays and ignition switch. Hopefully this helps

could be one of many probs check your altenator is giving a charge to the battery any garage could do this for you it only takes 30 seconds and most reputable garages wont charge for this

In is possable you have a faulty coolant temp sensor.
This could be confirmed by having a diagnosis check done at a garage.
It might have 2 sensors fitted so if it needs them make sure you replace the right one
