Hi I know this might sound mad but ..
I want a cheap diesel and this is on offer but a non runner
2001 2.4jtd 156.
Reason for non running? Owned by someone who I would consider not totally honest about fault.
Stated to be in good condition but fails to start does turn over.
Will start on squirting diesel starter into the inlet then stops. ( I know this will wreck the engine but htis is the info I have)
I am planning to go and see the car tomorrow to give it a check over.
What should I look for?
I can get access to a laptop and an elm 327? cable and I have downloaded the free fiat software som may be able to get codes.
It sounds like a fuel failure but ....
Pointers check lists etc would be great.
I can feel the old addiction to Alfas starting to bite so need to armed.
Thanking everyone in advance ( I know I should walk but they are few and far between here in Sweden)
I also know I will need discs ands pads if i buy it so "EB spares" or was that a decade ago?
