Hey Guys,

Im new to diesel engines so need your help.

Have a kia pregio diesel 2004 van

It won't start, just keeps cranking.
I wait till the glow plugs light goes off but the red light to the right of it still stays on.. looks like a half full something....?

anyway it was at a mechanics for a while they replaced the fuel filter & said they went over everything but they are dodgy as & they took alot of money with no results.

This is one of the vans they use at work & my boss asked me to look at it for him as I used to work with cars heaps... never touched diesel though which is why im asking you guys for advice before I start pulling things apart & working out how it all works the hard way.

So your boss is paying you to look at it and you don't know about diesels?

The business must be in trouble.

Ask your mechanic to check on the engine for oil leak, and your starter for possible oil intrusion. If there's no problem, check your battery. It might have been drained while you're starting your van. Check also your alternator and belts. And the least, check if you have enough diesel in your tank.
