  2. Re: Gwm steed 2.8 Tci diesel filter trap light

    it also caused a limp mode on my steed.

    the diesel filter has a water trap so draining a bit of diesel for inspection takes 5 minutes.

  10. Re: Help needed in diagnosing differential problem

  17. Re: 2008 Diesel Captiva starting issues

    a wild guess here.

    I have read, that diesel engines needs to turn over quick enough, like 350 -500 rpm with a starter motor.
    if this is not achieved, then combustion will not take place.

    so if...

    Re: Fuel problem or Not ?

    any fuel related aspects are of concern.
    leaking fuel can cause a fire.

    blocked fuel filters can cause hard starting.
