Clio 1.9tdi starting problem - Markiemark
Hi, since changing the air and fuel filter on my clio 1.9tdi the car struggles to start from cold. There was no problem whatsoever prior to the change, but it now turns over for 10 seconds or so before finally springing to life in a puff of grey smoke. Once started it runs fine and also starts fine once warm. Anyone know what the cause may be or if I need to prime the fuel system in any way? Thanks, Mark

If all you have done is changed the fuel filter and air filter, and the car was fine before then it could be that the fuel is running back due to air getting into the fuel line. Double check whatever fuel connections you have had apart to ensure they are all air tight.
