    Default Help car cutting out!!

    Hi all,

    My problems started on Monday morning basically when I start my 03 2.0 dtl it runs for about 15 seconds then it cuts out and wont start again but when I push it down a hill it will start then she will start the rest of the day without a problem but come the morning the same thing happens. I have had the car checked and by my mechanic and he cant see any thing wrong and there is no fault codes coming up.

    So does anyone have any ideas???

    Think you need a better mechanic mate.. First things that cause a non-start/hard starter in the morning is fuel drainback, whereby a very slight airleak in the fuel system allows the fuel to drain back overnight... Even if the glowplugs dont work you'd still be able to start it but would be a little rough for a min or two till it warms up.

    My suggestion is to get the fuel system pressure tested as this will tell you if you have the drainback problem.

    When you push it down a hill does it fire up immediately or take a while whilst moving?

    Yep mate it started straight away, I had it serviced on Friday maybe it has something to do with the new fuel filter not being fitted properly

    sounds like the fuel filter either hasn't primed properly or the seals are admitting air.... they did change BOTH seals didn't they? the big outer one and the TINY one around the screw?
