240 D question. Won't stop?
I am helping a friend with is 240 D 1978. He was complaining about intermittent starting issues. He has a new battery and a recently fitted starter. He went a way for a while and now it starts? He brought it to me to look over. I am not that familiar with the diesel models but had a general look around and could not see anything a miss. It still starts ok. While it was here I changed the oil and filter plus fuel filters and air filter.
It fired up no problem, but now when I switch the key and remove it won't stop? From my understanding this may have something to do with a vacum leak? Could someone give me some clue as to what I should look for? Also could this be related to his earlier starting issue?
All the best John.
