Try spraying starting fluid into the air cleaner intake to see if it runs this way, if it does fuel is the issue.

Currently the polo4 VW 1.6 can not start even when there is enough fuel and the battery is ok. It can be like starting after turning on the switch but it then refuses, whats the problem?

My peugot partner van T reg wont start when cold. Starts with easy start and when the engine is warm. spent hundreds of pounds on it, been to 3 garages and its still the same and now on top of everything...


sounds like a vacume leak this can stop cold engine from starting. vacuum leaks can be hard to find, it could be just about anywhere. when you have engine running spray the easy start or carb cleaner around the vacume lines, note any engine sound changes. and that will be where the problem could be, say could as it could have more than one leak.

My diesel santa wont start.Ive had computer diagnostic done and have been told that the diesel has to be under pressure (250 bar) at point of injection but im only getting around 70 bar. The injectors were...


have you had the glow plugs checked or replaced? the engine light'wait to start is not a joke. it means the engine glow plugs need time to heat the cylinders to max. heat to fire the engine to start. if you use either or strting fluid to start the engine in cold weather,be careful,the motor will get addicted to the starting fluid. sounds like you've not waited on the wait to start light goes off before cranking the engine.replace the glow plugs 1st and then wait before the wait to start light goes off! it's a common mistake.however the cost of glow plug replacement will be a constant reminder to wait to start. glow plugs cost about $100.00 plus labor.been there myself!! you can start engine easily in a/m with either or regular starting fluid, but please take this to heart,it's easier to replace glow plugs,than engine you can use starting fluid by spraying into the air intake of motor once,twice, but from there on,you're on your own! thank you for choosing fixya.com

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.

hi if when engine starts and warms up it then runs ok ? then starts ok rest of day ? considering vehicles age/milage ? have you checked heater glow plugs ? you only need one glow plug to fail/ leak to earth on cyl head and this will knock out/ leak power to earth of all other g/plugs also consider the possibility that the engine coolant sensor ( not the temp sender) has gon faulty this sensor gives ecu signal to provide excess fuel for cold starting on cold starts and auto cuts off as coolant heats up? rather like using choke control on carbs years ago ? also diesels used to have excess fuel device on pumps on trucks in days gone by ? whick assisted in cold starting hope this info helps?

Car wont start diesel engine Could it be the 'glow plug'? what is a glow plug? how can i test?


A glow plug is a small heating element in the cylinder. It heats the diesel so that starting can be made easy. Is your car standing in the open frozen parking If yes, then it would require a lot of battery power to first heat all the cylinders and then turn the engine to start. What we do in such conditions is to light up some fire under the car and heat the fuel system enough for the diesel to warm up a little and thus save the battery for glow plugs. Generally, all vehicles have an indicator light which comes on when the glow plugs are ready for starting. The diesel will ignite on compression, but it has to reach the cylinder and thus has to be flowing. In cold it freezes and hence the need for glow plugs and the heat. If it is parked in heated parking then the need for glow plugs decreases.

Alarm and imobiliser on a discovery 300tdi


before you cut or rewire the alarm, when welding the disco although disconecting the battery protects the battery, the imobiliser holds current, this my have gone into system factory setting, so it my be worth getting the imob and key re-conected, this is a cheap job at any Landrover specialist. hope your running smooth soon

Won't Start & No glow Plug Light on Dash


I am with a similar problem...

After putting on a new sump i found that the starter motor would work cranking the engine but no power is going to the glow plugs. The light on the dash does not appear either.

The relay for the coils does click but that is the end of it. I have a suspission it is the imobiliser but after taking the battery on and off several times to reset... still nothing.

There is fuel, good battery (fully charged), fuel lines are clean pressurised...

Any ideas???
