    Engine : 1.9 cdti

    Default possible leak off problem

    hi all...

    iv had the usual spanner on start up due to having bad glow plugs so i replaced them, but iv still got bad starting if the cars left for a good few hours.
    it usually starts first turn of the key but it sometimes cuts out not long after and i get no power at all and it then proceeds to start back up but very badly with a decent bit of smoke and lumpiness.

    could this be the start of leak off pipe problems?.. i dont get any warning signs coming up on the dash at start up so im guessing its the pipes.

    *engines a 2.2dti*

    found it... no codes?

    it did its trick when i fired it up tho. no power for about 10-15 seconds even with my foot to the floor it wont rev beyond 1500-2000 and then it just picks up and its perfect driving from then on.

    if its left long enough, it fires up but usually cuts out and has to be cranked a fair bit.

    im guessing leak off pipes.

    Default

    Started it up this morning and it fired up after a couple of turns which is right.

    What isn't right is it still has no power for a good 15 seconds for some reason. It's like if I pull away and I havnt got enough revs on, it stalls, but if I give it at least 2000rpm, it drives off as normal.

    I can even put my foot to the floor and it revs at about 250rpm per second and that's deffo not right. Once again when it gets passed the no power period, it revs to 5500 as normal

    As soon as its passed this powerless term, it drives perfect ?
