Diesel engines rely heavily on the fuel pressure, it sounds as if the pump is not putting out the pressure when it is hot, there for you have to crank several times to build the pressure up. You would want to have the pressure checked, of course when it is hot, and then you can go from there.

2003 Volvo S40 1.9T. when I start the car in the morning the engine knocks during 40 seconds and then it stops knocking and it operates properly without knocking. what should I do to have this knocking...


well this happens because the oil drains to the pan when sitting for a long time so when starting it takes a few for the oil pump to go though the motor this is normal best thing i could say is to buy some zmax or duel lube to help it from friction in the first start up.

I have the same problem, except this happens below 29 degrees. If jiggling keys dont work. I loosened the steering wheel adjusted and banged it up and down a couple times it worked every time so far. also the engine stopped 3 times while driving on interstate, restarting worked. this is a 2003 tdi with 90k miles on it. I am not going to try to repair until next winter. if the problem comes up. i will replace starter key switch. I think is has something with cold and wireing retracting when cold.

Hello, I have a Volvo S60 2,4d. Basix 130ps,


how are the plug wires, boosted engine's suffer from voltage leaks in even fairly new plug wires, the added cylinder pressure makes the spark plug require allot more voltage before it can fire compared to normally aspirated engine.

Hello, I have something that might help you. If you know where your fuel line goes into the engine. I would let it sit overnight and then take the line loose. Then hold the fuel line into a bucket and have someone turn on the key in the car. This should tell you how fast you are getting fuel up to your engine. Your problem sounds alot like its not getting gas up to the engine fast enough. I would check these things:

1. Fuel Filter
2. A bent or crimped gas line. (From Engine Rebuild)
3. You could even have a blockage in your tank ventilation. This would cause a vapor lock not allowing the fuel pump to work properly.

Outside of a fuel issue from your previouse history It could be still in your timing. If you find my information helpful please rate me and have a great weekend! :>)

I have a 2003 VW jetta tdi


You've lost engine coolant somewhere, and need to fill the engine back up with the VW special G12 coolant.

Then find the leak, which will be in one or more of the following places -
Water hoses to heater core, including any other coolant carrying hoses in the engine compartment
Radiator hoses
Plastic manifold bolted to side of engine which is known to leak (have replaced on an '01 VW Beetle, and an '02 Jetta, both members of our family in the past few years.).
Overflow reservoir cracked
Radiator leak.

Reply back what you find. If the engine got too hot, you may need to have the thermostat replaced.

What oil type do I use...2003 vw beetle?


if U live in a cold climate use 5W-30W, if u live in a moderate climate with hot summers use 10W-30W, any name brand meets your engines requirements. Do not use any oils heavier than these two, it can cause engine bearing damage.
