Mate a work is having problems with his Cav 1.7TD. Its fitted with the Izzue(or however you spell it!) engine.
Car seems to be taking a long time to start, more first thing in the morning when it is cold, car will turn over for a long while before starting. He has also commented on the fact that he feels the glow plugs may not be getting enough juice. The ignition warning light used to be slightly dull for a few seconds whilst waiting for the glow plug light to go out, but now it does not seem to be doing this at all.
Glow plugs were changed in the summer. None-original Vaux Glow plugs are in the car at the moment.
Glow plug relay 'clicks off' and light goes off a few seconds after the ignition is switched on.
Any way we can test the glow plugs ?
Is there a 'live bar' used to connect the glow plugs up?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
