Re: Cold start cutout?
Must admit that I dont understand how it could be a glow plug issue as she starts first time INSTANTLY and then cuts after about 15 seconds. It's only after that, that I have to crank for a long time and I recon that's to draw the fuel back up?
Surely if the glow plugs were going, she wouldn't start in the first place and there'd be clouds of smoke when she did.
I've just fitted a new Nissan fuel filter.......£45 OUCH!!!!!!! and she running fine at the mo. Just have to see what happens at 6am tomorrow mornbing when she's been stood all night. Nissan techs at Northwich say there's no non-return valve in the system so the fuel cant be tracking back to the tank. They recon if the filter doesn't work, its always possible that the pumping/priming bulb or pipework might be drawing air?
I emptied the Milners filter into a clean bowl and the diesel was spotless. Trouble is, there's no MIL light so I'm not sure that there'll be any stored codes to read if she goes in?
