1.9d cold start problem
#1
Hi all, my bingo ms has decided it doesn't want to start so easily when cold!! I'm quite handy with tools so just wanted to know a starting point before I throw money at the wrong parts!!  it's a 04 1.9d with 77k and regularly serviced - it's been running and starting fine for months but I recently left it for a week and went to start it and it took a good few seconds and turns to get going followed by a cloud of grey/black smoke (reminded me of my dads old black cabs lol) the smoke cleared, it ran fine and I thought nothing of it as it started fine when warm. The problem is, it's getting worse - taking longer to start!! Once started it runs perfect!!!
Any advice would be appreciated - ta

Glow plugs or relay?The mileage is a bit low to suspect tight valve clearances.

I thought glow plugs as a rule of thumb - I had a nosey through the forum and someone mentioned priming - so I did and noticed small air bubbles every now and then in the clear fuel pipe as I primed it!! Could there be a leak somewhere?

Best try one thing at a time to pin point the cause, don't go changing two things at the same time as you won't know what the cause was!

Check the glow plugs & relay first.
