I've had my berlingo 1.6hdi it has 119k on the clock for 2 years and its been serviced at all it correct times and I have changed the timing belt last April. A week on Saturday it refused to start after been left for 6 hours it was running fine before that. It turned over but wouldn't start, after my 3rd try it seemed that my battery was dying so I got a mate to jump start with leads. After 5 mins charging I tried again, it did start got to 1000revs then died again and then refused to start I noticed my head lights flashing on and the dials moving strangely and it was "bonging" inside. So we tried to push start it and again it did fire up but again got to 1000revs and died. It was took to a garage were the guys did a code read and it came up EGR valve and glow plugs which, the EGR was cleaned and glow plugs changed. This cleared all codes and it was put back together the guys charged the battery and it still refuse to start but still turned over but again the battery died after a few attempts so the lads tried to push start it and it wont start. The garage have checked the fuel pump and diesel is getting through, he told me it could be the starter motor as it doesn't rock when left in gear, so he's going to remove this to see if this improves the "rocking" if it does change the starter motor. But he told me it could be a big problem in the engine. Just need some ideas its costing me a fortune now and need the car back.
