Re: ford transit alternater
I am assuming your Transit is an older model. To get rid humming noises out of Car radios in the old days from generators and alternators there was a device they used to put on the alternator. I think it was like a capacitor. I am pretty sure you can still buy these at places like Jaycar and Dick Smith. They also used to put a device in the spark plug leads to stop interference from the motor/alternator. I don't know if this will help or not but is worth a try. Of course it could be a squealing fan belt and will do it until the belt warms up. That being the case a bit of soap or crayon on the belt will/should stop it. Hope I have helped.

hi mate it sounds like a lazy starter moter but failing in that a one off problem is try changing your oil yeah it sound silly but a have had one in the past and that was the problem as the oil sank to the sump over nite and caused it like a dry friction once it was started and oil was up it would fire all day
The engine in this model doesnt need glow plugs, Its direct injection. If the van is not starting then it will be fir another reason. Ok, can you get a 17mm spanner and loosen the pipes onto the fuel injectors. Crank engine and see if there is fuel coming out. If not just crank it for a few minutes and see if some appears. If fuel appears, tighten pipes and crank for little while longer, see if it goes. If this doesnt work, i have a few more things to try.
