Recently it became difficult to start when hot or cold on an upward facing
hill - garage said it was the fuel pump on top of the tank, tested pressure
(low) and fitted a new genuine part - problem didn't re-occur for a week.
Now it is suddenly difficult to start but only when "cold", when glow plug
indicator light comes on. Hot starts or when car has been used in last hour
or two are fine - cold and hot idle are fine as is higher revs. - Its just
I wonder if it is possible the glow plugs are, intermittently, not being
activated when they should be..... Is there some relay to handle the
presumably significant current these will all be taking when heat is called
for and where is it to check. Can I put a meter on the glowplugs to see if
they are being fed volts ? I presume they wouldn't all have failed together
and even if one or two were dud, presumably the engine would start, with
"misfiring", initially ?
Or any other areas I should be looking ?
