i own a c15 van the newer model with the DW8 engine.
now im more than sure before i got to see the van, the owner had started it before i got there as it more or less fired straight away and ran spot on.
as when i came to start it in the morning it just wouldnt fire, letting the glow plugs go out etc.... sometimes even 7 times
when it fires sometimes sounds like a knocking then runs perfect,i could leave it for 4 hours go back to it and would fire first click with no probs. but leave it any longer and would it hell as like want to start. its got around 105k on the clocks and only 3 owners.
ive changed the glow plugs, and checked for air leaks etc....and still the same only now its flattened the battery.
for one week last week tho it started and ran spot on then developed the fault again, only to not start attall, my bruv had a look while i borrowed the car to go to work and told me there was liquid around the pump, are these common for diesel pumps to go at this mileage? and could this cause this problem?
