Car won't start...not glow plugs...or battery...garage at a loss.
Just make sure your getting fuel at each injector by cracking them open a little when cranking it over. As long as your getting fuel, and it cranks fast enough, it is impossible for it to NOT start. Deisel engines can be started also with a quick spray of starter fluid, it has to fire, there's nothing to stop it from starting. Just keep at it and be sure it's getting fuel at every cylinder and cranks fast enough. Your only other problem could be the injector pump out of time if you have done anything ay all with it. Best not to have touched that injector pump in the first place, EVER. Lotsa luck pal, ya just gotta stay on it.

Hi, I own an accent CRDi '06. My problem is that, engine wont start in the mornings. But it does start on push start. After that it runs normally throughout the day and starts normally. I've checked b
when an engine will not start off the starter motor but will push start it indicates a problem battery or dirty battery posts or terminals
what is happening is that the capacity of the battery is reduced( especially on cold mornings) and the current draw to the starter drops the available current available to the ECM for the ignition system and so it will not power up
push starting is diverting all available power to the ECM so it starts
unless a jumper battery is connected correctly( positive to positive and negative to the engine --not the negative of the battery) it is just feeding power to the dead battery and nothing is achieved for the ECM and ignition system
to check a battery correctly a load tester has to be applied to the battery and when the test is applied , there is a discharge across a resistance equal to a starter motor draw and that is referred to a voltage drop on the meter
batteries will read a 12 volts across the terminals but when loaded down that voltage drops to around 10 volts for a good battery and less than 6 for a faulty battery
the other item of concern is that when the starter is engaged , there is a requirement for the run circuit to be energized so that spark can be produced and if that circuit has a faulty wire or connections the problem could be there
Take the car to an accredited auto electrician, have the battery load tested and have the circuit on the start side of the ignition switch checked
