^^ I saw a seller on Ebay selling rebuilt engines for US$1,800, they also allow for you to send your engine back and they pay you for it. They only thing is the wait.
I am back to hot starting issue, send it back by Ramdass in Tableland. Does have to do the sign of the cross every time ah start.

Adoin, when you say hot starting do you mean it starts easy when cold?
What are you going to have done by the guy, injectors or pump?
Wondering if it just be leaks on the fuel filter lines? The original clips gets worn over time. I do not remove the hoses when changing filters, I just unscrew the filter right off the housing. You will need to remove the air filter housing for space to work.

In the morning it will start as normal, however, recently the van idle on cold start with some rough idle.
So I drive to work, and say two hours after I start, I may get anywhere from 2 to 6 tumbles before the van starts. It is very inconsistent, say two days no issues, then next two days it shows back up. During the day it may start in a one, then the same day anywhere from one or four tumbles before it starts. Ramdass fixed it in July last year, just didn't think it would have showed back up so soon. I also change my fuel filter the same way you describe. I only did the tappet pan gasket change in February, doh know if that may have cause the issue to show back up. What have me worried, is week before, ready to leave work at 3pm, I swear 10 tumble, 4pm 8 tumble, finally half 4 four tumble then it start....

Hey fellas, I have a question about a pair of wires that fell out just above the fuel filter when I was changing the filter.
Can anyone verify exactly what this 'sensor' does? It was out about 2 months and I did not notice any changes and no check engine light, but I don't want some $hit to randomly happen as a result...
Also what is the actual part name so I can ask the guys in the firm.
Any help will be appreciated.

Adoin, a user in this thread if I remember had that same systems you are discribing, think it was the fuel pump.
Triniguy, i always thought that that sensor was the fuel temperature sensor.

I had a similar problem a while back start normal on a morning then during the day have to tumble a while before it start. The problem was the high-pressure pump in the engine bay. This was the diesel version. Not sure abt the gas version. But if it's diesel u can check under the pump on the engine and see if its wet. If it is then it's leaking. Best advice if it's pump to buy one new and done. Got one in chaguanas for 4500 by sookhai diesel. Original bosch.

^^Yup, it is diesel. " History time " Concerning the injector pump. Bought a used one, as it leaking diesel from a Massy mechanic. That leaked a lil after a year. Kept the original one and let Sookhai rebuild it, so far it isn't leaking. Even when it was originally leaking I didn't had any starting issue, I only noticed when I went to change the oil by removing the cover and seeing the pump wet with diesel.

When I got the problem I tried a few rebuilt ones as well and though they didn't leak the pump was breaking down that's y I ended up buying one new and done tried abt three before buying new. One worked for abt a month then one day coming down the highway van shut off as I accelerated above 100. Took abt half hr before it restarted and drove slowly to the mechanic. Any hard acceleration would shut off.

This problem was happening with the previous owner and mechanic made them change injectors injector rail fuel filter and some other stuff in the engine eventually a overhaul of the engine. Then I bought the vehicle after it came out garage then got the same problem switched pump and running sweet.

U can prob check the pressure on the line to verify the pump not breaking down as well as check the injectors. More than likely it's a problem in that area.

Now reading your post Gastly, good stuff to know, it would save a lot of time and money, just change the pump. The one you bought at sookhai still working ok?

^^ From the location of the sensor, I believe it is used to check the temperature of the diesel, which would then turn on the pre-heater on the filter assembly to pre-heat the diesel. In the drawing above the round circular part inbetween the filter and the assembly is a heater (31923F). I just assuming here, I not ASE certified... LOL!!! Maybe you can do a scan and see if it shows up as an issue, luckily it didn't throw a CEL. Simply, as my hose from the top of the EGR came out and that turned on the CEL...

OK still working on the Sportage. I know now I will not sell this vehicle as I have never gone through so much with all my other vehicles. Note this is my first Diesel vehicle and I am learning every day. Waiting on an Engine from Ireland. They are full of Diesels there. 95% of the vehicles in Northern Ireland are Diesels. Just waiting to see what the total cost will be. I am Sure it would not be the 40K they told me in the Bamboo.

Carcity has complete engine for 25k now. Which I find is not a bad price. But I decided to go the rebuild route.

Guy on 2nr advertised a head and block with turbo and alternator etc on it, and when I called said 4000 for everything including trans....when I called 3 times, he said yea 4 for everything and when I went quite down penal....and loaded the head and block first, he said is for the head and block only and he wants 2k for turbo and 6k for trans etc....I was like forget the trans, I need the turbo and he cant give, so I left it.

Came home to realize the engine is timed wrong and valves are bent, so I didn't really care bcuz I wanted a block and someone was selling me a bare block for 6k so I still came out good as I got a complete rebuilt block. So the guy said, so I will scrap it to make sure and make sure everything is tightend to specs.

I still need a turbo and I gonna put new hoses, and head gasket etc....So as money comes in, i'll finish up a bit. If I had all the cash I finished long time.


Also, ever since, I noticed I had a high rpm vibration, thinking it was mounts....no it was not mounts, apparently theres a big balance shaft unit in the oil sump, and I figure that was worn. But scrapping my engine, did prove it was the turbo spitting oil going into intake spiked compression and hydrolocked the engine and bent the rod and threw it out the block.

My new water pump of only 5 months also is rusty as sheit, and was running coolant, but its in better condition than the one in head and block.

I will be changing compressor also as my one was noisy when turned on. Removing engine hit the ac line so gas leaked out. There was no way to remove the engine without trans this time as the rod locked the crank and u need to turn the crank to remove converter bolts.

After rebuild I will be installing trans first. Then engine, more easier to do that.


Don't think I will reach 25k tho lol, so I will be able to change suspension parts too...

Torqed down head on new gasket and other stuff installed....


All i need is a turbo and an ac compressor. Ours was noisey.

Apparently the trans filter is not on the inside of the pan in front and inside there was like new. So in thinking to leave the filter as is and don't open up trouble.
