Re: 2.4 JTD Starting problem
I have this exact same problem with a 147 1.9 JTD. If it does not start the first time, you can keeping trying forever and it will just turn the engine over with nothing useful happening. I have tried to smell the exhaust pipe after cranking it for several minutes and I smell no Diesel. Makes me think there is a fuel delivery problem. Anyway, if I go away for more than 30 minutes, it will just start up and run fine. I have not been able to figure out what set of circumstances causes the problem to start happening, not precisely why it fixes itself. Any clues?
