Cold Starting

01 January 2009 - 05:09 PM

Hi we have a fusion 1.4 tdci which has always been bad at starting in the cold (it has been back to ford (alot!) 'no fault found')
2 main problems that I can see:- 1) the glow plugs will only come on in very very cold weather and then only for a blink ------ is there a temp. activation sensor that can be adjusted (or linked out) if so does anybody know where it is located?
and 2) the starter motor only ever engages for 1 or 2 seconds (not the motor I've linked it out and it works fine) then you have to re-turn the key again and again --- this can't be normal is it?
Any input on this would be most welcome ----- has anybody else had a similar situation / problem?
Regards Garth
