2004 landcrusier 100 series. glow plug light stays on all the time, although the glow plugs are not being supplied power. starts and runs ok.


THIS COMES ALL FROM "WAIT TO START" DO YOU WAIT TO START? IF NOT,THEN THE GLOW PLUGS ARE BUR'NT OUT,WHICH YOU WILL NOT NEED UNTIL FALL. OR MAYBE YOU'VE GOT IT HOOKED ON EITHER,STARTING FLUID,IN WHICH CASE,I SUGGEST YOU REPLACE THOSE GLOW PLUGS NOW.OR ELSE YOU'RE MOVING ON TO EVEN WORSE ISSUES.LET ME ASK YOU THIS,WHY ARE'NT THE GLOW PLUGS BEING DENIED POWER? AFTER ALL THEY START THE ENGINE? AFTER YOU INSERT THE KEY INTO THE SWITCH,WAIT TO START,LIGHTS UP.IF YOU'VE NOT WAITED UNTIL THAT WAIT TO START LIGHT GOES OFF,,,YOU'VE BURNT THE GLOW PLUGS UP.THE ONLY THING TO DO IS REPLACE THEM ALL.IF YOU'VE BEEN USING STARTING FLUID OR EITHER TO START YOUR ENGINE FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME,FORGET REPLACING THE GLOW PLUGS,BECAUSE YOUR ENGINE IS ADDICTED TO THE BOTTLE(EITHER) YOU MAY BE ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES,REPLACING THE GLOW PLUGS MAY RESOLVE YOUR ISSUES.BUT,WAIT TO START,,AIN'T NO JOKE. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU & YOURS!

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.

2004 diesel hard to start when cold


It sounds more like the glow plugs, the older models had trouble out of the module, but the 6.0 is pretty safe from all those problems. And don't forget to use the correct fuel additive for diesel engines, it helps .

Toyota Landcruiser ute HJ75 2H Dsl 4lt starting problems


Sounds like pump timing is out of sync with engine crank and camshaft. Utterly crucial on a diesel engine. all needs to be pinned in place when refitting chain or belt, then pump timing sho uld be set up with a dial test indicator. A job for someone who knows what their doing. Before considering buying this carry out compression check as if timing is out between cam/crank tow starting could have bent valves!

Hope this helps!

Ford courier 4x4 ute starting problem


Hi,

If I understand you right, the problem is at certain times the engine will not crank, that is turn over when you turn they ignition key to START. And at times it will start and run normally.

Might it be that the issue is with the starter system. The starter system is initiated at the ignition switch when the key is turned to start. At this point, the ignition switch then provides +12VDC to a starter relay. The relay is but a remote switch with slightly higher amperage capacity. The starter relay then engages and supplies +12VDC to the staring solenoid. The starting solenoid then performs two (2) functions. It provides the switching action (hundreds amps) from the battery heavy cable to the actual starter motor. The solenoid likewise pushes a small pinion gear along the shaft of the starter motor to engage the ring gear. The ring gear is of course on the edge of the flywheel which in turn is attached to the crankshaft.

Starter system problems could be corrected by:
1. check battery, battery cables and connections;
2. charge the battery if required;
3. clean brushes and guides of brush holders of the starter motor;
4. clean the commutator and commutator segments;
5. check/replace the armature or field coils if determined to be defective;
6. in some extreme cases it could be the drive pinion or the flywheel gear ring is defective.
7. often it is the big switch that the solenoid activates that looses contacts causing no +12V internally to the motor.
8. Most likely would be a defective starter relay or the IGN switch itself. Relative to this, you might try and check the connectors/terminals and electrical joints.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.

Given the amount of work to overhaul a starter, you might consider just replacing it.

This of course assuming that all other vital components of the car are working.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
