It sounds like your preheat system is not working properly on the cold startup. Haynes has a Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330 that will help you correctly diagnose and repair.
Battery volts at 13 is good but a fully charged battery should be close to 14.2. It would be a good idea to get the alternator output checked and a load test done on the batteries.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My 2007 sprinter has difficulty turning over on

The problem is your engine heater booster is running all the time. You will need to replace the dash switch that controls the heater boost (even though not lit) is sending a message to the water control valve to turn on. Replace the switch and it will start up every time on a cold morning

have a load test done on the battery as it may be failing and not providing sufficient power to run the ECM. Check for alternator drive belt condition and tension. The combination of low current out put from the alternator and bad battery especially in cold weather will cause problems as describe.

My 98 chevy blazer just got a new fuel pump and filter. Wont start even with starter fluid into the throttle body. Any ideas?


If it's a gasoline engine, please check for sparks at the spark plug end. If it's a diesel, check pre-heating system. Starter fluid in the throttle body must be ignited by the spark plugs. For diesel, pre-heating is necessary to ignite the fuel.

This Sign appears on the dashboard , What Is the problem? VW eurovan


I m not familiar with VW Eurovan but, assuming your vehicle is diesel powered, I would say that the sign indicates a fault with the "pre-heaters" which should only come on when cold starting a diesel. Normally, this sign appears on switching on, and you wait until it goes out before starting.
Does this happen on your vehicle and, has this symbol previously gone out after a few seconds? There is a relay, on the starting circuit, which should cut these pre heaters, after a short while.
I see that your temp gauge shows 90 degrees so, he engine is hot.
Try disconnecting the leads to the glow plugs, check that the engine starts OK and see if the warning symbol disappears In warm weather you can leave the leads disconnected and, if you have a meter, check if there is still power to the glow plug leads after the engine has started. (a 12 v bulb and wire would do). It they are still powered, there is a fault with the glow plug relay.

In winter time my 2004 Outlander takes a while to start-sounds like flat battery-but in summer all good.The battery on it's way out?


hi.
it is possible that the battery is at fault

if you have a DIESEL engine, then the fault is far more likely to lie with the engine preheat plugs (glow plugs) these are needed far more in the cold weather to pre heat the cylinder to allow the diesel to ignite. one or more faulty glow plugs will cause starting problems on a diesel engine, especially in cold weather.

Coil light on constant


is this car a diesel? if it is the pre-heat light staying on constantly then it could be a stuck relay. use a haynes manual to locate which relay controls this and remove it to see if it cuts light out. if so, replace relay and test

I have a 1998 1.8 diesel van, once its running its ok, but getting it started can be difficult (esp in cold/damp) Have you got any tips for starting, does this model have a heater plug, if so what symbol...


Sounds like the glow plugs are frazzled. There is one electrical wire going to a plug, then each plug is connected in sequence. The glow plugs are heating devices used to get the fuel up to temperature before ignition.

They are fiddly to replace, but are relatively inexpensive and the most common source of issues with cold-starting diesel engines (first thing to fail).

Some cars had a 'pre-heat' available with glow plugs, where you simply turn the key part-way to 'on' and you would see a glow plug light come on (looks a bit like a picture of a spring). If you see this light on your van, you can turn the key to turn on the glow plugs and they will pre-heat your engine slightly and make starting easier

I HAVE AN 84 TOYOTA 22R DIESEL AND WHEN ITS COLD IT WONT FIRE BUT IF I PUSH START IT IT STARTS RIGHT UP?GLOW PLUGS?


HELLO THERE:
Diesel engines work under heat of compression meaning that when the fuel is injected into the cylinder and is compressed during the compression stroke in the cylinder it heats up untill it fires.
If the engine is now starting and you are letting the glow plug on for the reccommended amount of time than yes i would consider getting a glow plug that has a higher temperature range on it.
also you can get fuel heaters this is what we use on all of our big rigs they are better know as pre heaters they work very well when the temperatures are very cold and of course a block heater works well too ok
I hope that this is very helpful for you.
Best regards michael

Hard to start by sub zero temp


oh oh oh, thats why father christmas uses a horse,,,
dieal engines dont get very good starting when its realy cold,,,
the heater light may go out but are they getting realy hot???? if not it wont start very well, my trick is give it twice the heat turn the kye to pre heat when the light go's out very quikly turn it off and back to pre heat again,,, when you have dont this the second time start her up,,,
now watch her go??? the heater relay should hold the heaters on for a minuet or so even though the light has gone out, so your could be fulty and it turning them off to soon, and a biseal with out heat is a dead duck if its cold,,,do as i all ways do if its cold,,,,twice the heat then start her up, it takes far less out of the battery that cranking up twice

2.8l rd28t ohc 6cyl patrol y60 wagon.not all glow plugs heat up and motor runs very rough at start. glow light in dash flashers when motor has started. Glow plugs are all ok


if only 3 plugs heat, probabilly one of the two pre-heat relays is defective ( or it's command ).
The relays are located left in the engin compartment, just in front of the battery and in the battery box. They should have green connectors.
If there is no fault found at the relays, but on their 'command', the pre-heat control box is located IN te vehicle under the steering column. ( Black plastic box with 4 screws, and a 16 or 20 position connector for engines with EGR )

Hope this explanation helps
