Engine Cranks But Won't Start
Hi guys, have a 2008 V6 TDI, 200 000 kms. Car runs beautifully but recently has faulted on 3 occasions, about 3 weeks apart.
After reasonable length trip (15 Km), pulled up and turned engine off. 20 minutes later, turned ignition on, paused, turn start position. Engine cranks about 3 secs but no start. Repeat 6 - 10 times, all no start. No unusual light. Switch off, wait 5 minutes, try again . Engine starts and runs fine, each time same.
Is not battery, replaced it on advice of dealer.
Any point presenting to dealer? If intermittent, what can they do?
Any ideas welcome.
