Well got it running again, but there is still something off with the glow plug system as they are still only kicking on for 2 maybe 3 seconds.boostedtsi said:found the issue...
I got on alldata and verified the timing marks on the cam, injection pump and crank...
The cam and injection pump are in time, the crank is two teeth off.
Looks like a really fun time for me... not really...
What was your battery voltage during this time (while cranking)?tdeboeser said:Thanks. Tested at the solenoid while cranking. Got 4-5 volts, I figure this could be a wire thing, but where do I look into next?
Battery voltage is 8 while cranking. I'm second owner, and I know the battery is at least 4 years old (probably older). Voltage with key out is 12.0+. It needs replacement, but I'm not sure replacing the battery will help. Thoughts?DanG144 said:What was your battery voltage during this time (while cranking)?
Dan...I think I'm ready to start on this...I ordered a voltmeter that was supposed to be here on wed. that just got here this afternoon. Nothing fancy...just the basics.DanG144 said:Mac,
What do your interior lights and headlights do as you engage the starter? Do they dim quite a bit?
It could be quite a few things based on what you are saying.
A $20 voltmeter will quickly pay for itself in many ways.
It could be your starter solenoid.
It could be a bad ground.
It could be a bad battery connection. ( I will not assume that you cleaned them when replacing the battery.)
It could be a bad solenoid to starter cable.
It could be a hydrolocked engine.
It could be a draggy engine from some auxiliary component (AC, alternator, power steering pump, bad clutch and in gear.)
Please do not feel that you wasted your money buying that new battery, unless you got the wrong battery.
In my case I had the engine light on the dashboard, not the immobilizerwhitedog said:This will probably be accompanied by the immobilizer icon. This icon is an outline of the car with a key superimposed on the bottom.
