CRD Start problems / SOLVED

Hi.
You remember, i had start problems. First, when engine was warm, very difficult to start, with scare to drain battery because of many attempts to start with no effect.
Dealer and diesel workshop wanted to empty my wallet replacing all the injectors (3 months of my salary, here's a lot of money.
Cold starts worked better than warm, but there's not immediate start, several crankshaft turns were needed, and with time it was going to get worse.
It occurred to me that I could buy a starting engine from scrapping, and try. It was little money, the expense was minimal.
And it worked. Since a week ago I am a happy man, I have been enduring this problem for a long time (since I bought it, two years) and it has definitely been solved.
I never thought it could be such a "dumb" thing.
I write this in case it helps someone in the future.
Thanks for reading it!

I've been having very similar issues and following your posts. Thank you so much for posting an update!

Just for clarification: you replaced the electric starter, correct?

That means he bought a starter motor from a scrap yard.

There was some other thread on here also, and it was about their starter motor would not produce enough rpm's to start the engine. Then replacing the started solved their no start problem.

Thanks for your help, Tango.

It's correct, sometimes i have to use "google translator" for any words i don't know and..."disaster happens".
