    rolleyes New Alternator with interseting results :)

    Just had to have a new alternator on my 2005 120 CDTI SXI (just decided to die on me) LOl, only before it would start from cold in 2 or 3 seconds, and chug abit and smoke, which from what ive read is probley the 3rd injector wiring?? But now it starts off the key and revs normally straight away and no smoke!! I suppose it makes sense as it feeds the electrics but I wouldnt have thought it effect it so much!?
    Anyway thought I'd share it, and now its all fixed
    keep meaning to get some pics up but first baby 7 weeks old is taking all my time Lol

    Know nothing about the CDTI but guessing that if the battery has a better charge and the alternator is charging properly on start up, then would help the glowplugs work straight away rather than waiting for them to warm up or something? lol, I'm no mechanic so don't trust what I'm saying!
