Diesel Landrover TDI jan 24, 2009 show

just listening about the diagnostic for TDI. Much more likely issue, for poor starting, rather than compression, is simply the Glow Plug computer, solenoid or glow plug controller. A very simple first check should be to make sure the glow plugs are getting juice! I’ve been know to bypass a bad computer, with a simple push button that actives the glow plug selonoid Just don’t hold the button too long ! -john
