Intermittent Non Start - 156 2.4JTD 10v
Now then... My wife had the car about 2 weeks ago and ran it VERY low on juice........
Since then it has occasionally not been starting. It turns over like hell, but does not fire. It sounds like fuel starvation, but if left for 10-15 minutes, it then fires first time.
I have used some diesel additive to clean the fuel lines, so am wondering two things as it still does not start now and again:
1. Could it be some residue or crap floating about in the fuel system due to being run low and if so, will a new fuel filter sort it?
2. Could it be a coincidence and there be something else causing it, ie, could it be the immobiliser? where does this isolate the ignition circuit?
Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated!!
