SOURCE: valve clearance
tappets dont squeak .. you want to hope the noise is coming from an ageing or loose fan belt .. if it is really coming from inside the valve cover then it could be a blocked oil passage that lubs the cam and its bearings ..this would soon cause a major engine failure .. other possibilities .. a bad bearing in the idler pully, water pump or alternator (a drop of oil on those can help identify the failing bearing) ... also at times the distributor can cause noise if its bearings run dry .. there is a really neat stethoscope like tool that allows you to listen to various parts and places to locat the problem .. but be careful playing around a running engine (no ties, long hair, necklaces .. if its the fan belt then it will likely make more noise as the engine is accelerating .. turning the lights on might increase or change the noise .. a leaky vacuum hose can cause a whistle like sound. .

ck you bat but youll probably find its your glow plugs.these are set in the head and usualy have a wire going to them.check with ohm meter.one termenal to the plug where the wire attaches the other to ground. there sould be no resistance for they are basicly a direct short to create heat that warms the air for initial start up.replace any that dont make contact with ground

starts,runs then cuts out more likely to be fuel,rather than electrics.if it were the control unit you would have a start problem as well.start with the basics and work up the expence ladder.change fuel filter(if fitted)then try redexe with high octane fuel.then check/replace fuel pump.only try one thing at a time.less cost....

Testimonial: "thanks very helpful "
try by replacing thermostat and the radiator pressure cap, this may be just the fix! make sure coolant level is fine. it sounds like it has to cool down for at least 10-15 minutes before restarting. god bless!!
