for about 6 months now when starting my car it use to jump alot like it about to cut out but didn't but as soon as it was warm up it started fine the first time only when cold it jumped alot so Ive changed the glow pulgs on monday and still was going the same but on friday try to start the car when cold this time the car cut out but restarted after then was driving it about 45 mins then car started to low power so lower gear then was fine about 3 mins later going up hill the car was loseing power again and this time cut out. now the car wont even start at all called the RAC out they checked everything and said the car should be starting fine... they got the car home call out another diesel person they done all checks everything pass and working how it should and he alway said the car should be powering up but its not.... but he said the timing might be out? anyway when trying to start the car... its starting to start but wont.
will try and start it today and record the sound of it.
if anyone knows how to time the car and would like to make some money pt me or to come out to me and have a look???
If you can, try and run the car from a clean supply of diesel from a petrol can directly to the injector pump, bypassing everything from the tank up to the pump, and don't use the pipe from the filter to the pump, some clear hose would be ideal. Or, pump the primer whilst a mate cranks her over, see what happens out of interest. Let me know how the primer feels as you're doing this.
I had an escort 1.8 turbo diesel, and i changed the glow plugs, after that the bugger was a bitch to start from cold, really struggled.
Took it to a garage, couldnt find a fault, finally after poking about, i found the fuse for the glow plugs had blown, changed that and problem solved, for cold starting.
The primer should get squishy as the motor is cranked, this means that the pump is actually drawing the fuel through to the injectors and back out the return side of the pump. I take it as the diesel guy checked the injectors he checked that the stop solenoid was opening and letting fuel through? Unless you've had a sudden loss of compression, or the timing has suddenly gone mad, the only thing that should stop the engine from firing is lack of fuel. I didn't hear the advance solenoid clicking in your vid, is it still working? If not, there's a multi plug that powers that stop and advance solenoid, it's worth a gander I suppose, althought it's already been checked.
If the timing had changed you would've heard a change in engine noise, quite knocky infact. To be honest though matey it's very hard to diagnose your problem over the net, just keep going over everything and we will try and help you if you come across anything new. I really wish you were local though cause I'm sure we could've got you going. Can you get a tow from a mate, that sometimes works if all else fails.
Everything was checked and still no start then like above, get fresh fuel to the pump from other source then you'll know if its a engne problem, but before, get a tow and try to start it, you might still have air in system and it needs a good jolt to release, ive done this before to start motor after i bled it when changed fuel filter.
