My wife's 2007 2.0 TDCi has an intermittent starting issue. Doesn't seem to matter if the engine is cold or hot.
It will turn over and catch but then immediately cut out. It will do this quite a few times and then eventually fire up. It seems to run fine once it's running and never cuts out when running or idling.
From research I've done, it could be a sticking air intake valve and the vibration of trying to start it free's it up again. Does that sound like a plausible diagnosis? Or could it be the EGR needing cleaned?
