My transit has had difficulty in starting from cold, i thought glowplugs, but tested those and they are fine (besides apparantly the glowplugs on these are more to do with emmissions rather than for starting).
This morning it took the same amount of turning over for it to get going, but once it was running, it was incredibly rough, not running on all cylinders, smoking, and sounded like a bag of nails at the top end of engine.
Ive read that the timing chain tensioner can start to play up and make it hard to start from cold - im wondering if the tensioner has failed completely and now the timing is out...What else may i have broke.
Its a 2006 2.4tddi 115
Any help appreciated.
