2010 Galaxy - Intermittent Starting Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have intermittent starting issues with my 2010 2.0 TDCI galaxy. It fires and turns over but doesn't start. Can be fine for days and then it can take 5 or 10 cranks of the key. Doesn't seem to be any pattern in weather conditions, cold or warm engine etc. etc.

I've only once had a warning light on - on collection of my car from a garage after being serviced - their diagnostics pointed towards the ECU.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi James,

Thanks for the response. It was serviced 2 weeks ago, but it was happening before and happening since.

I had another look around the forum after posting this and found a chap in the focus section who had exactly the same issues as me on his 2.0 TDCI focus.

As you will/can read there, I've followed his suggestion on what worked for him and cleaned the anti stutter valve assembly and I'm now just waiting to see if it makes any difference or if I need to sand the valve or replace the assembly.......
