Poor Starting When Warm

31 March 2014 - 02:26 PM

Hi i have a 2006 mk3 mondeo with the 2.0 TDCI engine.


I have a problem with starting the engine if it is already warm. After i have stopped the engine, eg. when filling with fuel, and then try and start it again it can sometimes take 20+ seconds of turning over before it will run. It usually then runs really rough at very low RPM before smoothing out at the expected idle speed after a blip of throttle.


This same problem occurs with or without running a glowplug warming cycle and the warmer the engine the worse it seams to be. When the engine is cold it starts up perfectly fine every time.


I plan on having a look round the engine bay for split pipes ect, but thought i would ask out on here for any suggestions.
