Our Grand Voyager will not start when cold, and if started with easy start will still only start with difficulty. We suspect fuel problems. Any ideas anyone?

I don't know much bout diesels but i do know that on chevys you have to make sure that a certain heater coil warms up in ACC mode before you turn the key to the start position to get the engine to turn over

Hello Alan, dunno if u got sorted yet but i had the same ind got it fixed. First attempt was my trusty diesel specialist who diagnosed a leaking injector (£250+vat fitted). However because they and my next mechanic couldnt pull it even with a 14 tonne load applied overnight,i almost had to have head off to have it pressed out OUCH££££££££. But behold there is a god,the second mech being particularly superb looked closer than a replacement and fixed the leak with a homebrew diesel treatment applied directly to the injector......starts every time since early Feb. Cost £40 plus homebrew £a bevvy.

I have a 2.5 crd Grand Voyager 03 plate. If the temperature is -2 or below, the car cuts out. It starts no problem but as soon as you accelerate, it cuts out. It would appear that it is being starved of diesel - it has had fuel filters cleaned out and the mechanic has had it on 3 different computers to but no fault is being found, so he cannot fix it. It goes no problem if the outside air is warmer than -2. Anybody have any ideas?

try the diesel fuel line even a small crack lets in air and causes problems getting fuel to the engine! once engine is running it is fine

hello again, if you read my post from last year i had the same problem this cold spell all over Christmas. I had several computers on it and they showed no faults, however i was sure that the fault was the same as last year because the symptoms where the same (not starting in very cold weather but easy start done the trick). I went to the same DIESEL SPECIALIST who diagnosed the same fault which was a leaking injector. This doesn`t mean fuel leaks out but it leaks internally causing poor starting pressure and a new injector is required which i guess will cost about £300. I was quite fortunate though because the injector was leaking due to it being corroded and I was able to have a corrosion eating formula applied which sorted my problem for a year (maybe i`ll get a year out of this time). If anyone thinks their problem might be related to this then don`t hesitate to contact me here for help.

my speedo isn`t registering and my mileage isn`t clocking up on my grand voyager 2.5 crd 2002. The rev counter is ok. Any tips anyone? Also my fuel gauge fluctuates giving false readings that are way out.

I have a Chrysler grand voyager diesel 2.8 year 2005 .I can' start the engine,the battery is charged and I even started with jump starts.
When ignition key is turned on to start the engine doesn't do anything, just lights on the main control panel disappears completely.
Thank you for any help

Chrysler 2.4D Euro model. Cold start is a pig, all checks out, battery, filters, injectors/pump, elect. brain and computer checks. Suspect a sensor that tells the computer the engine is hot, when it is cold. If I use spray-start at -2C. or colder I am on my way.!. Is there such a sensor? Or system? What do i look for or fix or replace. No Norwegian Chrysler dealer can do more than replace parts that have been replaced while looking for faults.(Try a new Injector Pump).

2000 pounds? Right!And then? I fixed it myself twice, but do not know which one was correct. I replaced the inboard computer (It hides forward of your coffee holder on the floor) with another same year computer from a junk car and cleaned the electrical connections that lead to the engine between the radiator and the wiring harness.Chrysler estimate? 4000 dol. My cost 250 dol. Try to reset your computer. Disconnect the battery for 20 min. Know your radio code before you do this.This italian diesel boat motor (2.4 96-02) has a good head unless you overheat. Bottom end is weak.
My garage is in Finland, Rovaniemi. Do you speak Finnish? The weak spot is the short life bicycle chain for timing,(replace at 50K) inherent low oil pressure, intolerance for synthetic oil and heavy caravans. Its such a good crusier though.
