1.4 wont start
Hi all
My Berlingo 1.4 -98 petrol wont start. There's a new battery, new spark plugs and the starter motor seems ok. The days before it "died" it was very hard to start cold.
Please any ideas?
Have you checked all earths & connections?Confusedalut:

Check the coil pack too!! They're known to fail.

Also the crank position sensor
Ex 1.4 Berlingo Multispace
Is this a model with a coilpack sitting across the spark plugs, or does it have a squarish lump next to the engine, with leads going to each plug?

If you have the model with wires, it's not that difficult to hook up an inline spark tester. (you'd need 4 of something like these to test with the 'rail' version: )
There are even testers that doesn't require removing the leads:

Take a look at the 'high pressure fuel reservoir' (the plastic tube that connects to the fuel injectors.) does it have a 'tube valve' at one end?
Crank the engine, the intake a lot of rags or absorbent paper and place around the area, unscrew the cap and depress the pin in it.
you should get a 'wet surprise'. (The fuel should be at about 4x atmospheric pressure... )
No spray = something wrong with the fuel pump or the 'main relay'.

Check the fuse box in the engine room.

Does the 'engine light' on the dash light up for a moment when you switch on the ignition?
What's the voltage on the battery?
