    Default Trouble starting.

    First of all i'm not sure if this is correct place, please feel free to move if required.

    I have peugeot expert van 19D. For the last week or so i've had trouble with starting from cold on a morning. Try'd jumping from another car but still wont start. Been towing it and it starts no probs. Once engine is warm no further problems problems. I'm suspecting it's the glow plugs again (only been in 13 months) is there any way of testing them without removing ? I know you can spray easy start in to air intake but i think you have to disconnect power to glow pugs (is this right) how do i do that ?

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    We have these as prisoner vans in work - the one i use is an 04 plater with about 60k on it - it never starts easily, often I have to literally sit on the key waiting for it to catch....when its warm it starts almost as soon as you turn the key!

    typical shyte engineering!

    test the voltage to them with a multimeter...you're looking for 12V when the glowplug symbol is on...
