2001 313cdi will not start
Recently purchased a H/r LWB 313cdi. When it is running I could not be happier.2001 model
My problem is that on 3 occassions the vehicle has faile to start. The first time it came good after about 5 min . The second I drove 60 miles then parked it. 2hours later it would not start. Appears to be getting fuel but no ignition. No amount of coaxing including low speed tow and starting spray made any difference. Towed to MB dealer who diognosed a faulty injector . Injector was replaced still would not start. Computer had a list of faults which they cleared and cleaned up ECU ternals which can be a problem.Picked up vehicle this morning some 18 hours after test drive and vehicle went great. I feel that this elinates a fuel problem. I drove some 50 miles and while it was in motion at approx 70 ks an hour it stopped running.
The only 2 things I can find in common are that the second time it stopped I found that the gear selection cable had come out of its retaining clip and I had also difficulties with the gear selection. Today the van stalled when I changed down a gear while going up a steep hill. Could my problem be a clutch sensor.???.I have scoured the net and it seems to fit . Any ideas ???
