LDV maxus hard starting tip

My 2006 Ldv maxus had a starting problem, fitted new glow plugs,still hard starting,the problem I had was it would crank over for about 15 minutes but would not start, leave it about 15 minutes put jump leads on it and it would start and run all day,but leave it over night and the same thing in the morning was told check crank sensor,cam sensor still the same.
i ended up putting another battery under the drivers seat running cables to the battery and for the last 6 months it's started first time every time without any problems still starts fine every day even after leaving it for 2 weeks starts first time with out even glowing the plugs.
hope you try this easy fix let me know if it sorts your problem.

2007 ldv maxus 2.5 van will only start with easy stast and it comes up with 1 fault crank position sensor


next would be to check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail (under hood @ fuel inj sight) It sounds more like a fuel delivery problem then an electial problem

ldv maxus,difficult to start, changed glows,no better, a lot worse in very cold weather -6. any suggestions


Battery condition? I used to "cycle" the glow system two or three times before cranking. In other words when glow finishes, turn key off then start the glow cycle again. Get a crankcase or block heater. To warm up or "keep" warm. Glow almost never fails.
But it's possible the Glow timer or connections are going.
There are "Cetane" improvers that may improve cold starting. Quality of fuel you are getting? Last time Filter was changed? Really cold? and stuck. Only for emergency, not recommended. Ether cold start spray can. Spray into the air intake. You may need to open Air filter passage to spray. I knew a farmer who had an automatic ether system. Blue up the engine from over speed. So that is why you need to be careful!
