Hello All ,
My 2.0DTI has started getting harder and harder to start these days I found a quick solution which is not really feasible as i have to take the engine cover off every morning and remove the Plug from the temperature sensor bringing on the glow plugs, doing this it starts like a brand new car.
When i dont remove the temperature sensor it starts like a tractor.
I have changed the leak off pipes & the glow plugs but seeing as when the plugs are forced on it starts fine i am not really sure if its the Temperature sensor itself or possibly the relay any ideas? Sounds a bit lumpy in the first vid which i had not noticed before which is why i went to the engine. Thanks in advance and much appreciated.
Also these videos are the car on start up, top 1 is when i pull out the temperature sensor bottom is attempting to start normally(usually a lot worse).
