Help With Some Problems With The Car
Hi all. I'll get straight to the point as i'm taking it into a garage and I want to tell them (roughly) exactly what it is or might be.
1) Car would sometimes tick over a couple of times before firing up so purchased new set of Glow Plugs. - Got it fitted but still same problem. Recoils maybe?
2) Car would lack alot of power and be very rough. Purchased 5L of Oil, got it changed with new Oil Filter + cleaned out any deposits. Found that Turbo Pipe/Hose had a hole in it so got that changed. Still some power problems especially when going from 1st to 2nd, it has this sudden slow down then picks up again.
2b) Before we changed the Pipe, we checked for errors as Engine Management Light was on and it said Engine Temp. Sensor but after he changed the hose he said it was probably that.
3) When starting the car first time, for the first 15mins-30mins (not sure not really timed it), the fan at the front of the car (radiator/intercooler?) spins as fast as it can! You can hear it inside the car with the windows down! But the engine just started so why does it need cooling? Any kind of A/C is off as well.
4) It drinks ALOT of Diesel. Fill it up with V-Power/Ultimate and clean it out with Millers now and again. 120miles worth of Diesel went in 50-65miles...
I'm taking it in on Wednesday. Engine management light is on right now. Hopefully the faults will come up. I think the Engine Temp. Sensor apart of 2b needs to be changed personally but that about the others.
Any input would be appreciated. Thank you :beerchug:
