My 1st post,hoping for some help.I will try to explain in a step by step of what is wrong so forgive me for not using the proper words.
I own a ford transit 100/350 tipper Diesel.
I get into my truck,turn the key and wait untill the glow plug lights goes out and then i start the engine.
It will start,but the rev counter wont pick up the ref,if i try and put my foot on the accelator,it still wont pick up the ref.
The engine will then cut out.
So i will start again,turn the key,wait for glow plug to go out,start the engine and still the ref wont pick up nor the accelator will not work and the engine will again cut out,this can happen for maybe 4-5 times untill the ref kicks in and then the accelator will work.at this point,i dont need to press the accelator pedal,the engine will start to warn up on its own with out any fuss.
it only happens in the mornings,throughout the day,i have no problems at all,it will start and the ref kicks in stright away,In the last 2 mornings,the ref has started to kick in at the 2nd attempt,so i was thinking it could be the glow plugs,as the weather is warmer now and therefore the diesel is not so cold,i really dont know,just having a wild guess.
Any feeback would be appricated.(sorry for my bad spelling)
P.S I forgot to mention that sometimes,after 4-5 attempts it wont start,it just trys to start but kinda shuggers if that means any sence.Also its a 07 model.
