fuel leaks and problem starter any help!!


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me out with this, I'm frequently being troubled by the fuel return pipes working loose on the injectors,it's difficult to spot because the fuel leaks only when the engine is running,which can be a problem if i'm driving for a few hours,is there a cure to stop them working loose,and as anyone else had the problem,it's a 200 TDi.

Also my starter spins reapeatedly and only engages the fly wheel every second tuesday of the month!!!! could it be teeth missing off the ring gear.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Have you tried replacing the sealing washers on each banjo bolt (2 on each one)?

Perhaps a very small amount of thread locking compound on the thread would work.

The only way to check the flywheel ring gear is to remove the starter and slowlt turn the engine by hand in order to inspect the teeth. Could be the starter solenoid sticking, or the arm that throws the starter dog fowards.
