Car won't start when cold . . . i need to use starter fluid to start it . . . any suggetions?

1. Do not use starter fluid on a glow plug diesel engine. (explosive)
2. Most likely 1 or more of your glow plugs is out. They are not too expensive and are fairly easy to change. Facing the engine, look on the right side. There is a set of "plugs" with hoses, and a set of "plugs" with wires. You want to change the set of plugs with wires.

if you cant turn the engine over with the pull starter, you have locked up the engine by running it too lean and hard, a rebuild is in your future

I have a t maxx 2.5 and i had took the electric starter off and put a recoil sterter on and now how are my supposed to heat the glow plug

you can buy a glow plug igniter or do what i did and cut the engine off of your EZ-Start and just use it to heat the glow plug... it's easy to put the electric engine back on. so either way will work.

Having problems with starting my tmaxx the ez start motor wont turn the motor over it seems like it does not have enough torque i have broke the motor in already started fine yesterday and wont start today

you might have your engine hydro locked. easy solution to this. empty your gas tank, take your glow plug out, turn your truck up-side-down and crank it over a few times. put everything back and you should be ready to play again. what happened is you probably flooded your engine. another possibility is your battery for your EZ-Start isn't charged enough, so before you go through the hassle of the above steps, check your battery first.

Glow plug light flashes on97 tdi sharan

on some diesel engines the glow plugs will cycle after the engine is started. it does sound like your glow plugs are not all working that would cause the hard start and excessive smoke when it does start.
