Starting Problems 311 cdi

Hi All

newbie to site

Got a problem with Merc Sprinter 311 CDI (53 plate) due to cold weather not starting first thing in the morning. I have to bump start it every morning no lights coming on to say there is a problem. Once started it is all right for the rest of the day. Any ideas

Have you checked injector leaks? A friend of mine is unplugging the pressure sensor to increase rail pressure at start. Better to fix it if injectors are leaking.

Most common is pressure regulator seals and injectors. Plenum chamber and injector cover off, disconnect multi plug and leak off pipe, clean out any diesel in top and crank over for 8 secs, no diesel and your injector is fine diesel and you have probs. Or you can call Williams Auto Diesels Ltd. We have das/star for all diagnostic needs and key coding/ start error faults etc.
We are mobile and travel all over the country as more and more people are unable to get their vehicles repaired within a reasonable time and cost.
