All diesel engines if you have had a leak and repaired it you would need to get a garage to bleed the diesel through the engine that should solve the problem starting the truck.

    Thanks for the response. This fuel bleed suitation is that the reason that the glow plug does come on in the afternoon of after the engine has been run for a hour or so?

    Yes diesel engines are ment to be bled if any leak has happened and air has got into fuel lines
    Petrols don't require bleeding. It shouldn't cost much for you to get someone to do it, Its best not doing it yourself so you are sure its 100% correctly done.

    Speak to a local garage not a main car dealership
    they will do either for free for you when they have time or for a small charge it takes less than 30 mins for a professional to do it.

Are you waiting after turning ignition key on before actually moving key to start position? My diesel I turn key to 1st position;bells and lights;if engine is cold an amber light that looks like a lamp filiment comes on...wait until that light goes out before engaging the starter.

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


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.

Turbo lag and lack of power


Hi,
This is the second Vw I have responded to in a fortnight.
Your lack of power I presume always happens when the glow plug light illuminates?
This is because it is causing over combustion to vaporised diesel, I would be looking in the Glow plug timer and relay, as for Turbo lag, I run a E34 6 cyl Bmw Diesel and the Turbo only kicks in around 2,500ish so maybe yours is a little tired or in need of a check up?
Hope this helped,
