    Default Poor starting.................but not from cold

    My 120 CDTi is having problems starting

    It starts fine first ting in the morning, but take it for a run, leave it a while and come back and it takes 3 or 4 attempts to start

    Been reading about and the crankshaft sensor may be the culprit ?

    Anyone know if its difficult to change, or could it be something else.

    new battery fitted last year

    Not getting any error codes

    Has i said yours is very similar to mine,mine started up fine at 4 oclock this afternoon after work,then went to pick wife up at half 6 and was cranking for around 10 seconds before it started.
    I dont know about yours but my starter motor is slow at turning and abit noisy,tbh i think it could be a combination of the starter and glow plugs.

    I.m having this problem too but with a 150, car is warm maybe left for 2 mins it spins over and kicks as if away to start then conks! only ever does it once and not every time, starter does seem to struggle and I would say is noisy, I changed the alternator and glow plugs oh and a new bosch high end battery thinking this was the problem!

    Maybe the compression is better when warm? hence harder to crank!!
