    Default My Start Problem (VIDEO)

    Right, as i posted before i have a problem with y cars starting. It makes a whining noise then eventually catches on to the flywheel and turns the car over, mainly happens when car is cold and been sitting for a while as it takes a few turns to start, where as when its been running it start after then first turn. i dont think its an air problem and also think that fuels there when needed because when it starts it puffs out a lot of dark grey smoke which leads me to glowplugs or injectors or leak off pipes.

    Posting this as i hope someone can help me turn in the right direction here.


    Here is the clip:

    Check the battery output by having it load tested. Check the earth onto the starter motor, take starter motor out and check the brushes and commutator and clean.

    Ensure that the starter motor has a good earth on it.
