    Advise please

    Purchased Vito sport automatic 2002 for £2000

    Imidiatly had starting problem when engine became hot

    Van went back to garage

    Replaced diesel pump and cam sensor, price £240

    Picked up van driving home stopped twice, called AA twice, hot start problem, they got it going with easy start, carried on exhaust fell off

    Took it to Mercedes specialist they replaced the pressure garage on the fuel rack, price with exhaust and mot £690

    Hot start problem has not been resolved :neutral:

    A frined and diesel machanic suggest that as it starts with the use of esay start the problem is more likely to be electrical?

    Why did the Merc garage not put it on their star machine or what ever they call it?

    Should this be my starting point, take it back and insist they put it on their diagnostic computer..?

    Or should I get rid of it and count my losses?

    Any advise welcome... I love the van but do not want to keep spending in it

    Thank you

    How far can you drive it before it cuts out, Vito has the good old 2728 crank sensor fitted.....

    And welcome to the forums.....

    Hot start Vito

    Thank you for the welcome,

    I only had it running for 25 minutes before the problem occurred. I have it going into another garage today to see if they can trace the fault.


    Thanks for the reply

    Hi don't know if I'm posting this in the right place, just joined today, my vito has an intermittent problem, when I start it, it runs for a couple of seconds then cuts out. If it starts properly it runs ok, it has never cut out while driving but have noticed that the rev counter temperature gauge drops to zero and the oil light comes on for a few seconds and then it all goes back to normal .I have tried replacing the relays, can't see any leaks from the injectors or pump or filter(only two months old). Bled the fuel system, no air in system, any ideas appreciated? thanks Andy

    Vito CDI HOT START PROBLEM

    Please any body with a hot start problem using the CDI diesel engine.

    I replaced the Cam shaft senor... the diesel pump... the the fuel rack.... none of these sorted out the problem and cost me £750.00 :(

    Then some body suggested to check the battery and sure enough a new battery remedied the problem. Apparently if the battery is not giving a sufficient out put then various electrical problems can occur

    Thanks to all who replied


    I now look forward to enjoying my new van :D

    Kind Regards
    Andy
