SOURCE: Diesel wont start

1. Make sure that the battery is fully charged.

2. Check the fuse for fuse # 30. This is the fuse for the:
Fuel Heater (Diesel only),
Wastegate Solenoid (Diesel only)
Injector Driver Module Relay Coil (Diesel only)

3. It is not uncommon for the fuel bowl heater (little wire in the bottom of the fuel bowl) to go bad. If the fuse is burnt, you can pull the small plug on the back of the fuel bowl to get around a bad fuel bowl heater.
As far as fuel leaking, a common problem is the water separator valve behind the fuel bowl. There are o-rings in there that tend to go, especially now that we're burning the ulsd. Do a search on water separator, and you'll find volumes of information and how-to's to swap out the o-rings.There's other reasons that you could have a fuel leak, but that is where I would start first. And welcome to The Diesel Stop.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

SOURCE: starts first time, no smoke on normal running,

It could be a coolant or transmission fluid leak in the combustion chamber. Check your coolant and transmission fluid to see if one or both are low. White smoke from the exhaust is a classic symptom of a blown head gasket, have your cooling system pressure checked. If that checks out good then have your transmission checked.

White smoke is indicative of burning antifreeze, if your not using antifreeze then it is condensation when the motor starts however if it does it all the time and it's not cold outside you have another problem.

Audi 2.5tdi white smoke on exhaust low revs

White smoke is usually a good sign of un-burnt diesel so reading your post and all the things you have already changed ie the glow plugs I would have the injectors tested to make sure they are atomising properly as it sounds to me like when your car isn't under load ie at low revs you have a cylinder that isn't firing correctly
Hope this helps Nick

2004 kia carens 1.9 diesel will start up but only rev up slightly then emits black smoke

With all the reported problems with this vehicle I would start by having the fault codes read. I am sure that you will get a lot of codes that will relate to all the faults you want answers for.

Hi my kia sportage 2.0ltr diesel dont rev over 1000 then cut out. What can i do

White smoke korando

This is regarding korando white smoke problem.

I too had the same problem and took it to the agent in Sri Lanka. then only i got to know that it is not a problem but a feature. Korando has a technology called CDPF (Catalyzed Diesel Particulate Filter). What it does is collect vapor, co2 and other gasses from exhaust and burn out time to time in a high temperature. It has many advantages but bit embarrassing when it happens in the traffic :-). It happens often (for 200kms) when you pump normal diesel and happens rarely (400km) when you pump super diesel. What they advised it not to panic and do not stop the engine while it happens. You can adjust the CDPF system and its' functionality through software updates from your agent (matching to different weathers ). You can find more information about korando CDPF system from following PDF document.

I just purchased a used kia and it started smoking

if this is a diesel kia then smoking is not a very bad sign. diesels tend to smoke when the diesel injectors are clogged up. this can happen with very poor dirty diesel fuel. take the kia in to a good mechanic. not the agents or kia cause they are going to rip you off. or there is a solvent you can buy at a carparts&accessories that can unclog. just ask for assistance. a diesel starts smoking when the diesel injectors are clogging up. good luck.

i would check all the basics like spark plugs and check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.With a can of 2+2 carb cleaner while engine is running --if idle goes up or down that is were your leak is--

2005 sorento 2.5 diesel.tick over fine.lift reves to 2000,engine goes lumpy,some white smoke then all hell breaks loose engine revs up to limit ,wont shut off with key and dissapears in thick white smoke....

Sorry to say this but you have a blown head gasket, this white smoke is diesel and water mixed, depends on how far you want to go now if you want to strip down or get a tablet that I mean a special tablet that you put in the radiator that does do an instant and effective repair, garages don't tell you this as it's for them only if you know what I mean, you get this tablet of the internet as garages not sell you one. please do not use the liquid sealers you can get to repair radiators.

Hope you get sorted with out to much cost.
Good Luck
