Scudo sometimes doesnt start!

Sooo sometimes the scudo doesnt start, usually if i have been driving for a while and turn the engine off, it wont start for a minute or two.

Re: Scudo sometimes doesnt start!

Does the engine turn over or nothing?

Not saying this is your issue but i had a car that would not start when hot. Turned out to be the starter motor.

Re: Scudo sometimes doesnt start!

it turns over fine, just doesnt fire. im thinking its electrical gremlins. it seems to be okay most of the time and then just wont fire sometimes for a little while. if i try to start again after turning off and letting the coil prime again it works, I just dont want it to let me down when im miles from home lol

I presume your Scudo is a diesel.....
Not saying this is your issue either.......

A neighbour had been experiencing something of a similar problem....one of those annoying intermittent faults that disappeared as soon as any where near a garage ETC .......... Would turn over fine but just not start  ..... Mostly it seemed  after  running engine through day but also gave starting issues in the morning on quite a few occasions... glow plugs were first on list to be tested... a couple changed and ruled out .........Eventually found it was a cruddy connector to the stop solenoid (connector/wire looked fine ... fell to bit when touched)  ..... Replaced stop solenoid and connector .... been working fine since

Re: Scudo sometimes doesnt start!

Just to add that on my Expert 2002 1.9d you can hear the stop solenoid on the side of the fuel pump, engaging.
When the ignition is turned on, the solenoid will buzz, when the dash light goes out the buzzing stops and you can hear a definite click as the plunger retracts.
If you do a search on the forum for "stop solenoid" there are a few posts.
