Non Starter From Cold

Hi All

I am new to writing and using forums, but I need some help.

I have JGC 03 CRD 2.7 WJ.

On cold start first thing in the morning 98% of the time it won't start with out using cold start sprayed into the Air Box.

Once fired up and warmed up it will restart again but takes a quite a few turns to start up, it sounds and feels that it's starving of fuel. There is very little smoke and just the odd white puff of smoke on start up.

I have removed and re-sealed the HP pump, changed the glow plugs (and found 2 out) changed all filter including fuel filter.

General driving I am loosing no power or MPG, drive like a dream.

I am pulling what little hair I have left out stressing over this, any help and advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Gav

Re: Non Starter From Cold

Have you confirmed all glow plugs are working?

Have you checked the fuel return lines in the engine block near the injectors?

Re: Non Starter From Cold

What kind of temperatures is this occurring in? Is it possible to use a block heater?
