td4 starting problem


Recommended Posts

Could be the fuel pump under the bonnet (near to the fuse box). It will not fire up if the fuel pressure is low. Next time it turns over and does not fire, try hitting/tapping the pump. This sometimes brings it back to life temporarily and it will start.

I have a td4 which fails to start on occasions it turns over fine but wont fire up then for no reason it just starts it will be fine for some time then suddenly repeats.

has anyone any ideas

Need more info: Model year?

Model year? Early:Do both electric pumps run after ignition 'on' to prime system before cranking? Later: Does the pump in O/s wheelarch run after ignition 'on' to prime system before cranking?

Problem when engine hot, cold or both?

Any smoke from exhaust whilst cranking?
