  1. Cold Start Problem Tdci 2.0 136

    Hi All Just been reading through all the comments as I'm currently going through the same problems and thought I'd find some tips here. I first thought it was electrical as had a new alternator fitted by an uncle on the drive and then replaced the battery - still had the problem and so thought it needed a service and maybe the alternator hadn't been fitted properly. Had that done yesterday, the garage cleared a load of crap out of the fuel filter, have checked the glow plugs (they were all good) and we're still at a loss. Have been referred to a diesel specialist next which who I'll be calling tomorrow but will mention the fuel line and see if they can find anything wrong there.
