2003 Ford Focus Tdci 1.8 Starting Problems


Recommended Posts

My wife has a 2003 Model Ford Focus 1.8 TDCI.

Since she bought it in August there have been problems with starting from cold. It does not do it all the time, however trying to start it results in the engine trying to turn over, however not starting for several minutes.

The Focus has had its glow plugs renewed and also a new fuel filter, however the problems persist.

I pull an expensive additive in the fuel, this seemed to fix it for a while, however there are starting problems yet again so this was probably just a coincidence.

When the car is started the car runs very well and no other problems persist.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
