Help 2.4 JTD Starting problem

My 2.4JTD 10v will not always start from hot or cold, checked there is fuel at the filter, checked the relays for the injectors all working fine, if I leave it for a while come back to it dam things starts fine and runs no problem at all.

Any ideas what to look for next time it fails. As this is intermittent problem hard to fault find the problem.

Cheers Hammo

147 JTD

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?
