2004 2.5tdi Cold Starting Problem
Hi - I'm new here.
I've just bought a 50K mile 2004 Allroad 2.5tdi and since picking it up last Friday it has not started first time after being left over night (it has been very cold). I've been back to the dealer twice already and had the battery and the fuel filter changed but still it fails to catch first time in the morning. When I turn the key you can hear the engine trying to catch 2 or 3 times before it eventually fires up (takes about 10secs). It has never failed to start and starts first click at all other times during the day.
I'll be calling the dealer in the morning to say its coming back in again!! - I've read various postings on the internet about similar sounding problems but I am a loss to what I should be expecting the dealer to look for - any ideas? I asked them about Glow plugs the first time I was in and they didn't think that this would be the problem.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
