147 JTD Starting Issue - After belt replacement
I really would like your input into this on going issue. Here are the symptons!
About 3 months ago I had a near miss with belt snapping fortunately it never totally failed the water pump had failed.
Anyhow I set about changing the belt. All good belt and pump replaced and car back on the road.
However here is the problem ever since I changed the belt the car is very unpredictable to start, it seems more of an issue when it has run for a while and then started again some short time after.
Could something have got damaged? I was thinking about the cam or crank sensor.
No engine fault recorded.
When the car starts it runs sweet as a nut.
Any help greatly received.
My Wife is going nuts! and is threatening to take it to the garage!
