Heater wont start.Fan goes, Starts to heat, then blows a couple clouds of smoke and dies. Ive cleaned filter, new fuel. Cant figure out what adjustment I should be doing. Glow Plug? What else?

take the shield off and see if it burns with more combustion air. If it does then the heater isnt getting enough air. look for a shutter or set screw near the burner that should be the primary air adjustment. sounds like you have been working on the fuel side already. You may check the orfice to see if it is partially blocked, use a safety pin and gently **** it out. also check the burner tube

Glow plug light not coming on, on dash. Engine turning over but not starting. Have never had any trouble starting before. The fan belt has been screeching for about 30 seconds for the last few weeks when...

Check fuses to see if there are busted ones. Then check heater plugs if good. Heater relay included in check. Engine wont fire if the air inside the chamber is cold. Then check fan belts for wear, replace if necessary.

My renualt laguna 2003 2.2dci has a cold start problem, if i spray easy start into the air filter, it starts, what could be causing the problem? regards gary

i would suggest that the heater plugs in the engine are either faulty or not working, the can be checked if you know what you are doing, they basically act as a heater inside the engine when it is cold, if they are not working, a diesel engine relies on heat i ignite the fuel airmixture unlike a petrol engine that has a spark plug that ignits the fuel. if there is no heat the fuel air mixture will not ignite. Check that power is going to the heater plugs,it will be 12 volts, if there is remove the heater plugs(easier said than done) then check the heater plugs,(the engine can not be used when the heater plugs are removed). I would sugguest getting some one who knows how to check them if you are not sure, as you have to basically put 12v to them and they glow red hot at the tip.if they dont glow when wired up they are faulty, and change them all, about £40 a set if you shop around.
