|| Hi All
|| I have a 2005 Focus TDCi 115 Zetec Climate that I have owned from
|| new. It now has 17K on the clock.
|| I have noticed recently in this cold snap it does not start
|| instantly, even if the heater is used - this being from stone cold.
|| It will fire on the first turn over then stop and then start on the
|| second turn over of the engine if the key is not released. Sometimes
|| you think it has started instantly and release the key only to find
|| it has not started. On the second attempt however it starts
|| instantly. In all other aspects it is perfect.
|| Do other owners experience this or is there a problem, as other Turbo
|| Diesels I have driven seem to start instantly with no heater usage
|| whatever the weather.
I've got a 51 plate TDCI which exhibits similar symptoms, even in quite cold
weather it fires into life instantly on turning the key.
However when the temperature reaches below freezing I find that it fires ok
but will not continue to run and it can take up to four turns on the key
before it eventually does so.
No big deal I agree, but when one is so used to the engine bursting into
life at a touch, it can be a tad disconcerting when it doesn't start first
