Peugeot Expert 2.0 HDi - Peugeot Expert won't start -
Now the weather is getting colder the van will not start in the morning. It turns over fine, but will not fire. It will start with a tow, then run all day. Next day it will be the same thing in the morning. Any clue what to look for?
My similarly engined 307 packed up the other day. Called out the AA and it was fuel starvation, can't think how/why. There was over 1/4 of a tankl of fuel but it wouldn't start. Patrol removed a big plastic trim/cover from the top of the engine, found the squeezy bulb that primes the fuel system (at the back of the engine bay), primed the engine which started and has run relaibly for several weeks since. Mystery
No, no spark plugs in a diesel. The heat of the compressed air ignites the fuel. Usually it's an electronic control unit that senses temperature and controls the injection (if the fuel is injected later in the stroke the air in the cylinder is compressed more ergo more heat) instead of glow plugs nowadays.
