Cold start issues 2006 avensis (not glow plugs)

Recommended Posts

2006 Toyota avensis D4D

Car has a lot of problems starting in cold weather. Sometimes can take up to 3 attempts, cranks for about 5 seconds then goes flat. Then when i do start it i have to step on the throttle. 

I recently changed all the glow plugs so pretty sure it's not that.

Any ideas would be much appreciated

There is a trick of pouring some hot water over the suction control valve on the high pressure fuel pump and seeing if it starts better. Could be the SCV is tired.

Что бы исключить воздух в топливе и непроницаемость топливной системы, перед началом закачки топлива помпу прокачки на топливном фильтре. Должно быть там такое. Топливо возможно для ночных отпусков.  Replace a fuel filter.

The question of sensor of temperature of cooling liquid of engine is yet possible. It is good to look a scintiscanner his temperature at a cold engine. And yet question, on the new candles of incandescence is tension given? A simple relay costs there, near the fuel filter of small box. Is a safety device whole?

Close there is a TSB which includes a newly designed SCV and updated software for the engine ECU

Sorry but I just sold the Avensis, but there are some guides and posts with pictures of the SCV. I used kettle hot water at probably around eighty Celsius, but if your hot tap will give you a jugful at around sixty degrees, I would imagine that would be fine and you would be less likely to burn sheets of skin from your body if you have an accident. Take it from me that squirting liquids at high temperatures on yourself really hurts, and for quite some time.
