Re: the above video. (from January 2011)
I left a comment on the video asking if they'd sorted the problem out.
She replied saying..
During the last year, she'd had a garage check, glow plugs,
, air sensor,
air sensor and nothing fixed it.
Then 2 weeks ago she went to an auto electrician who said it was an alternator pulley -
she changed this part and now everything works fine....
temperature now -5 to -10 in her country and the car starts first time.
Does anyone know if it could be as simple as that? ... a pulley on the alternator?
We are prepared to go down the new glow plug & relay route next weekend.
I do know that when I had the cambelt changed on mine a year ago, afterwards you could hear that typical slipping sound...
but only when the weather was cold.
My hubby suspected, at the time, that they hadn't put on a new belt when they changed the cambelt.
