Tried multiple times spent about an hour to no aval. Tries to run when using 'start u bastard', but no go either. Vehicle has only 188,000km and serviced every 8,000km.

On the driver's side of the engine near the turbo there is a 1 inch hose, unplug it & spray the start ya barstard in the hole as the engine crank's.
If it doesn't start then you haven't got glow plug issue's.

Could be fuel filter or crank angle sensor but just a guess without codes.

Thanks Clarky, have replaced the glowplugs and also the fuel filter, and now also the crank sensor. Wondering if the injector module could be the culprit? This has got me stumped..... as for the codes ..... there was multiple codes showing.

What about the glow plug module?
Multiple codes? How's the battery? Common cause of issues with the CRD.

800cca's is a minimum.

So far the bill is about $1500 and its still not running. Will have a look at the glow plug module. Battery is only 8 months old, checked out ok.
