Hi

My 159 8V 1.9JTD starts fine. But the start is very rough and the engine/car is shaking for a moment.
If I check some videos on youtube about a 159 start, it sounds the same but much louder.
I came across some post about the flywheel. But I don't think it's the fly wheel.
Since there are no strange knocking noises that are gone if you pull in the clutch.
Any ideas?

Any other suggestions on this one? My car is also a bit rough on start up. Cord or warm doesn't matter. Compared with another 159 1.9 8v in my family it is rougher as it starts up.

Injectors would be my shout. If it only does it for a couple of seconds on start up...our last BMW did the same until we cleaned the injectors....

Have you had the glowplugs out & checked they actually glow at the tip & glow hasnt moved further up where it makes no help at all...Quite common & wont give you any fault as they still draw current.
