Trouble Starting S Max

6 posts in this topic

Hi

Hopefully someone will be able to help!! I've had trouble starting my s max in the morning to the point where it will turn over but not start and then will shake violently!! I've been told one of the injectors has a leak by one garage and another garage has said I need new glow plugs!!

Any help much appreciated!!

Matt

What does it run like once its warm ? , i would have thought if it was still bad running after its warmed then maybe injector problem , if it runs well after its warmed a little then could be the glow plugs

It runs ok once warm it's just a struggle to get it started!! So it's more likely to be glow plugs??

It does sound like it could be , but always good to get a second opinion and i'm sure someone else will offer a little more on this subject.

Glow plugs will be cheaper than an injector to try if you don't get anymore information.
