Reluctant cold starter
About two weeks ago, my 99 145 Cloverleaf began to have trouble starting from cold (e.g. after having been left over night). I've had it for almost five months, and up until then it had always started perfectly every time.
Symptoms are that the engine turns over no problem, but won't fire. The injector light flickers on. After a couple of goes, I can catch it with the accelerator pedal, and then it's fine.
Realise it could be the spark plugs, but in my experience things are never that simple! Does anyone have any other ideas? And it may just be a co-incidence, but the shortly after it happened the first time, the airbag light came on (some sort of electrical fault??).
Also think I can detect a very slight diesel noise until the engine is up to temperature - but might just be paranoia after reading all the threads about variators!
Cheers for any advice.
