Berlingo starting problem
#1
Hi, just recently my 04 forte berlingo has been a little bit laboured when starting from cold in the morn. Also there is quite a bit of smoke when it finally starts? Any ideas please:S. Also, when i open the boot something clicks within and locks itself when it returns to the latch, so i have to lock all the doors to open it again:brickwall:....
Other to that its a beauty!! Cheers guys and gals

Could be valve clearances, what mileage is it at?

It won't be glow plugs, they only operate when it's zero degrees.

240k? Wow!

Is that right Steve, I never knew that, I bought my 52 plate from a garage and they told me to always use the glow plug on a first start up ??

I had the same problem on another motor, new glow plugs cured it.
I was also told glow plugs always come on before starting unless the engine is still warm, nothing to do with the outside temp.
