    Any transit experts around?? Delete if necessary as not a rod (but definately a sod.)

    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.

    i assume this is the last of the mk 6and rear wheel drive ?
    these suffer with air in the fuel system and usually its the filter head to blame
    what happens is that air gets in and the fuel starts to drain back to the tank
    a few questions please
    how many miles
    whats it like when its hot
    have you bump started it
    when did you last fit a diesel filter and was it a genuine one

    if you have a noisy to end, its usually the chain tensioner problem, knocking timing out, they then smoke, miss and won't usually rev up properly. filterhead problem usually only affects starting and the 1st 10 minutes of running.

    how many miles 108,000
    whats it like when its hot perfect (was until today)
    have you bump started it No cos it can **** them (which you obviously know)
    when did you last fit a diesel filter and was it a genuine one
    Fitted a new filter last week made no difference

    All good questions Darren, thanks, but i fear there is more of an issue, i hadnt ruled out changing the filter head but cant see the point now as its now running absolutely ****e so thinking must be more to it...

    edit, have answered your questions in the quote box, but not obvious, should have used another colour.

    believe it or not, a chain kit usually fixes it. although, and don't discount this, i've done a couple that needed the cams re-tightening, because the chain moved that much that the valves were tapping the pistons. instead of bending the valves they lift the cams and loosen the carriers. if you have it code read, it should come up showing pump A timing error.

    Ah ok, thats helpful thanks, i suppose il take it apart and check the cam carrier and take chain cover off and see whats what....
    Is it a bitch of a job for a non trained mechanic do you think? Any special tools required?
    Any pointers would be great..
