Question about 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

Turbo diesel, cranks but does not start when it is cold.

I have a turbo diesel. If the engine is not started for a few days in winter, when it is cold, the engine sometimes cranks over but will not start, causing the battery to flatten. Last winter I had the battery replaced and the starter motor overhauled. It did not start this morning. Any ideas?

Have the cold start valve replaced, it enriches the fuel mix during cold start and check the glow plugs and see if any are bad, to test remove the wires and put test meter to ohms and one by one test each glow plug with one probe to ground and one on the tip of the glow plug see it it goes close to zero if it does not move then that glow plug is bad, replace all that you find bad.

Smoking exhaust


Does the engine smokes blue on cold start?
Does it runs rough at coldstart?

Then check the glowplugs / glow system.

Diesel rodeo dies and lack power when cold and in winter


Try changing the fuel filter and get the glow plugs checked or replaced .Diesel goes a little waxey in colder weather making it harder to go through the filter .
Hope this helps.

Stalling when cold


Have you changed your fuel filter? Pump ok otherwise would be doing it all the time. Injector pump on some of these has a thermal advance solenoid on the side of the pump If so check power going to it Also check glow plugs and after timer

What is the Cranking Power for the Battery


Right way to do this is to match the post position & case size, then buy the battery with the highest cca you can afford. Don't use less than the one that's in the car now. Turbo does not require more cca than non turbo...it creates no extra drag on the engine when starting. Higher cca will help with cold starts and hot weather, generally not being "worked hard" will also extend it's life.

Ford f250 superduty turbo diesel 7.3L Will not crank


Charge the batteries. take a Reading to make sure that you are getting almost 14v to both batteries. If it is not charging then take the alternator back off and have them check it. you might have bought a bad one. There is a way to test the glow plus with out taking them out. ( Take a piece of wire long enough to reach all the glow plugs from the battery. unplug the glow plug wire.If you touch the end of the glow plug with the hot wire it should make a little spark. if no spark then the glow plug is bad. do this to each one, but one at a time)

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.
