My 2004 Diesel Kia Sorento takes 18 seconds to cold start. OK when hot. I have changed glow plugs and checked them. Injectors seem to get to pressure. Computer shows no errors. Battery is new and turn


is the air intake clear , new filter nothing squashing the intake pipe, how long does it take for the glow plug light to go out once you've turned ignition on ?

2004 santa se 2.4L Temp gauge reads normal, but heat from vents excesivlly hot.will not start after running for a while until it sits 1/2 hr.


There is a blower control resistor (manual system) or a blower transistor (automatic temp system) located behind the glove compartment in the HVAC box and this is a high failure item.

I've got a 2005 F250 6 Liter Powerstroke turbo diesel that has been starting rough and takes a minute to smooth out. I've been losing power and yesterday had to crank and crank to get it started,...


it is a fuel delivery problem
possible air in the system that needs bleeding out
check for air leaks in the fuel supply system , loose filters , hose connections , blocked vent for the tank (evap )
best if you get it to an accredited diesel pump specialist shop as they would have more experience that a service center

What problem could be causing the engine to run rough and uneven (hesitates) when cold? After few minutes running, it works perfectly smooth.


Petrol or Diesel? If petrol it's probably engine coolant temperature sender and if diesel it could be a defective glow plug or cold start device/pump timing.How you had glow plug draw test done?Is there any smoke and if so what colour?

2004 Ford f-250 6.0 Liter Diesel will crank but engine won't start. Then the next day it will start.


Hi, i would first try replacing the glow plugs as if you have problems starting from cold then this is the cause you can usually tell if it is the glow plugs if after running it up till temperature then turn it off and then start it again strait away if it starts fine when upto temp then this indicates that the glow plugs need replacing.
If it still has the problem when upto running temp then the chances are the fuel lines and injectors need cleaning.
You can buy a fuel additive and using this will solve the problem just pour it into tank then give it a good run about 3 hours then see what its like at starting if this solves the problem then i would put this into my fuel once every couple of months.
If on the other hand you still have problems then the chances are it could be either the diesel pump failing or could be even worse like head gasket.
If this is the case then this will need testing at a garage as they have testing kits to test if their are any gasses getting into the water system this indicating a head gasket problem.
If you need further assistance then post back.
Hope this is some help to you
