Aren't cars funny things! Through the cold snap and the snow my old man's car ever played up but the last month its had trouble starting. It would start run for about 5 seconds and then cut out. It would take 3-4 of these starts before it would fire into normal use. This weekend how ever it stopped altogether. It will turnover but will not fire up. There is a slight puff of smoke as it its about to but that is just it.
I know it could be a number of reasons but anyone with a bit of Ford diesel engines might shed some light on it.
