Starting problems

Post by missm21 » Sat Sep 29, 2018 11:43 am

Hi

I have a vw scirocco 2.0 tdi 60 plate. I have no issues with battery but after a couple of stops my car will turn over but won't start. It takes quite a few attempts before it starts again. I have read it could be to do with the fuel or needs remapping. I've had it on a diagnostic machine and nothing comes up. I've asked machanics and no one seems to know. I don't want to fork out for remapping if it doesn't solve the problem. Any ideas of what it could be please?

Hi, it won't be the ecu's map.
Do you mean after the engine is warm it won't restart? Bluemotion stopping the engine at a standstill?

Either way, it is something to do with fuel in that you don't have an ignition system on a diesel engine ;)
