There isn't enough temperature in the cylinders for starting. I would suggest one or more of the glow plugs is not performing or sub-performing causing this issue

Nissan terrano 2.7td. starting problem


Glow plugs are the answer to cold start problems.
Check that they work using a multimeter if you know how.
Otherwise connect a jumper cable from the hot terminal of the battery to the glow plug bus bar..be very careful not to ground the lead in any way to the head while doing this.
If the engine then starts easily with little smoke, the problem is with the relay or the timer of the glow plug circuit.

Hi there
It sounds like that your car is not starting. I think you got a loose wire and it might be at the back of the motor coming from the glow plugs. Good luck and ask again please.

My 2001 F350 seemed to have gelled up overnight with cold temps. I had fuel additive in the system. Once it warmed up today and batteries fully charged, it cranked very slow and then after 3 tries it...


glow plugs may be bad,when starting try turning switch on several times,each time you do,wait for the wait to start light goes off, if it starts like that,then your glow plugs need replacement. you can start it with either spray,but when you do that the motor gets addicted to the bottle,so to speak, then you'll really need to replace the glow plugs if you keep either starting it.when using either spray it into the air induction,use very little either,if you can't find the either,you can use regular starting fluid,but either one you choose,it takes just a quick spray to start. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Glo plugs don't seem to be getting hot when I hold the button down ... it will however start with star ya bastard ... once the enging is hot it will start no problems


GLOW HAS TO BE WORKING.BECAUSE ENGINE STARTED.GLOW PLUGS ARE USED ON COLD START UPS.GLOW PLUGS PREHEAT THE AIR IN COMBUSTION CHAMBER SO DIESEL FUEL WILL START TO BURN ON START UP.WHEN YOU TURN ON IGNITION SWITCH THE GLOW PLUG LIGHT WILL TURN ON FOR MINUTE UNTIL PREHEAT DONE.GLOW PLUGS WILL STAY ON UNTIL THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GET OPERATING TEMPERATURE.THEN THEY TURN OFF.

hi if when engine starts and warms up it then runs ok ? then starts ok rest of day ? considering vehicles age/milage ? have you checked heater glow plugs ? you only need one glow plug to fail/ leak to earth on cyl head and this will knock out/ leak power to earth of all other g/plugs also consider the possibility that the engine coolant sensor ( not the temp sender) has gon faulty this sensor gives ecu signal to provide excess fuel for cold starting on cold starts and auto cuts off as coolant heats up? rather like using choke control on carbs years ago ? also diesels used to have excess fuel device on pumps on trucks in days gone by ? whick assisted in cold starting hope this info helps?
