engine dies
 
My 3.0CRD 2006 Overland has all of a sudden decided that it will start for about 2 seconds and then just die.

when i try to start it up, nothing happens, its totally dead. If i then wait a while, it will start up again, and do the same again.

The battery seems ok, because i have power to the radio, lights, windows etc.

When i did manage to start it up and keep it running i had my foot on the gas, dont know if that was just luck.

the dash is reading 12 miles to empty, so i seriously doubt its empty.

any ideas?

Fuel pump maybe? When were the glow plugs last changed?

Car had its service just last month. If it were the fuel pump would it not crank or cough\splutter?

and now it fires up for a nano second and dies.

Will it run any better if your foot's on the accelerator?

Also how's the oil pressure?

Yes I think it will run when your foot is on the accelerator. :D

Lol Ok I asked for that:lol::lol:


Also who serviced it? And did they carry out ALL the work?

Could possibly be the IAC is dirty/ faulty. I had starting issues due to that. Cleaned it all out and it's fine.

sorry been away for a while

but it started on saturday night, and again on sunday. i have not tried it since.

It made no difference if I put my foot on the gas or not.

But what i did notice was that oil\temp dial was reading cold, and it took some time to move to medium.
