OilIT Posted March 26, 2006 Share Posted March 26, 2006 So I mustered up the enthusiasm to check and change all the glow plugs on my 200 after problematic starting, all were showing good voltage on the wiring, and all new ones are glowing as they should. BUT, it still doesnt want to start, even if I wait for the glow plug light to go out, and then try to start if Im lucky it will fire and die, then if I turn it over it will evenutally start (excuse petrol head here - but it sounds like its firing on 4 cylinders for a couple of seconds then goes to all four). If I turn it off immeidately and try to restart - its fine - straight away. Acceleration and driving is fine. If I leave it a couple of hours - same problem. I have adjusted tappets, but also found that a banjo bolt was missing on one of the fuel return, but have now put a new one of those on - with washers - but no improvement. I am wondering if its fuel or compression. Any ideas appreciated ! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
