Odd startup issue (2.4 Diesel)
Hi all, just wanted to see if anyone thinks they know what might be causing this with my 2.4 JTDM:
Basically when I start the car I need to crank it quite a while (by comparisson with anything I've owned before) 4 or 5 seconds, with nothing, then it'll suddenly catch. Most of the time when it catches it's as smooth as you like which makes me doubt a glow plug issue as I think that normally makes for a rough few seconds of running. On occaision it'll start, almost stall then pick up and run fine.
It reminds me more of a problem a friend had on a 2.0 Diesel Vectra where there was a leak in the fuel system, at the injectors I think, that allowed air in so the fuel drained out of the engine.
Anyone had similar? Car's only done 45k.
PS Auto wipers, that sensitivity adjustment, up or down for more sensitive? Damned If I can tell the difference.
