Hey.
Am new to the club and hope you can help.

Our daughter has now also bought a Kia Venga, 1.4crdi 2013.

The challenge is that there is an unusual amount of time to start the engine at cold start.
Have changed the glow plug relay but it did not help.

When the key is turned, the starter runs approx. 10 sec before the engine starts.
Our 1.6crdi from 2010, starts immediately when the key is turned.

Anyone can help?

Thanks in advance.

Possible one or more of the glow plugs? Can you measure their resistance?.
Hi.
Thanks for your reply.
How do i measure this.?
i have a digital multimeter, but hav trouble finding the glow plugs.
Are the on the engine on the backside (towards cabin)??

What should the measurement show to be rigth / wrong?

Hi
You can measure the resistance of the glow plugs by disconnecting the power wires from the top of all of the glow plugs and then measure the resistance across each glow plug.Should probably read approx 1.0 ohm/1.2 ohm (you can check the exact resistance online).

Hi.

Thanks.
was thinking, could it be something with loosing fuel pressure?
When engine is warm (being used) the engine start immidiately.

I will measure the resistance and return.

You could also check for at least 10/11 volts at the glow plugs when ignition switched to 'on'.
Glow plugs definitely the easiest thing to check.

Are you waiting for the glow plug light to go out before turning the engine over? In cold weather the procedure used to be, ign on> put on seat belt> check mirror> check glow plug light on instrument panel> wait until it goes out... then start. When warm weather you can cut it down to almost nothing.
Trying to start before the light goes out is not beneficial to the engine or the battery.

Hi.
Yes i do wait for the glow plug ligth to go out before turning the key.
I have earlier had Mecedes with ex. defect glow plug fuse, but never even in cold weather the starter turning 10 sec before engine do start.

Maybe important.
When starting, the engine run smooth from beginning on all cylinders

Hi FJrahn

I'm having a similar problem.

New glowplugs didn't sort out my car.

I'm wondering how you got on.

Thx
Hi CCA minor

changing the glow plugs went perfectly.
Everythings is good after changing.

Had this tested with minus 17 degress celcius last 2 weeks.
Before we also had changed the glow relay (70A)
