Why does my 2004 (Land cruiser) PRADO 3000 Turbo Diesel 5sp- have issues starting when it's cold? It turns over and over does nothing, then when it starts, I get a big plume of smoke, then it idles rough...


glow plugs are activated if look on the dash when you turn the ignition just before cranking and you should see a light that stays on for several seconds then goes out and then you should crank the engine ! sometimes when its really cold or the glow plugs are worn try turning the ignition on and off each time light goes out 2 or 3 times to get more heat on the plugs then start ! if this doesnt work then glow plus and system needs checking !

1992 ford f150 xlt- when first started idle jumps from very low to very high repeatedly until warm. then idle is high


try un-plugging the IAC motor,then start it,if it idles low and stays there then replace the IAC motor----if no change then you may have a knock in the engine and the knock sensor is telling the computer to change the timing to compensate for spark knock due to low grade fuel,so it advances the timing back and forth due to too high of rpm then too low and the computer doesnt know how to smoothen it out that fast,but eventually does.The check engine light would usually come on in this case

Engine Light goes on then clicking under dashboard -- engine stalls


could simply be your battery is about to die and the voltage is getting too low.
if the engine light is going on then take it to a mitsubishi dealer and they can read the stored error code.

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery


Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
