1997 1.8 diesel starting problem - giggles57380
Hi my ford has been left for a while, and now won't start. I have changed the battery and have the starter motor looked at and reconditioned, but none of that has worked.
Does anyone know if there is anything else I can try???

Well, the year and a full description of what's happening when you turn the key would be a good place to begin....

Its a 1997 {now added - DD}, when i turn over the engine there doesn't seem to be enough power there as though the battery is flat

Does the engine turn at all? Is the new battery also flat? Are any of the battery cable terminals getting warm.
