Hi All

Just got a 02 plate 2.5 102hp find it hard to start when cold...turns over for quite a while before starting, have tried leaving heaters on for longer but it makes no difference. I live Gosport/Fareham area.. could one of you kind people point me in the right direction to get this issue sorted..

Thanks

Tony

check the fuel line has no air in it, modern diesels rely on vacuum to suck fuel up from the tank, all very nice but if there is a tiny air leak somewhere it will drain back into the tank and take lots of cranking to suck it back up again, I had this prob on a ford focus turned out to be an air leak on the fuel filter, I saw on here somewhere someone rigged up a cheap electric fuel pump rather than fix the air leak, might be a bodge but it should works I' sure A:
