When cranking my zd 30 the Tacho bounces and when i do get it started the engine light stays on.I have put a new battery in because it seems like the starter motor cranks slow.I took it to a mechanic and has told me it has 2 faults,crank angle sensor and injector pump.I gave the go ahead and put the crank angle sensor in with no success.Any other idea's

Were the codes cleared after the new battery and crank angle sensor were fitted to see if it throws new codes?

I hope not mate.The mechanic is saying it still cranks slow even with the new battery.I might fit a new starter motor and if that doesn't help I,ll bring it home and think about it. I havn't got the money to replace things willy/nilly.

If the starter is at fault the slow crank may throw up injector codes, not enough pressure maybe.

How long does it take to fire up? Does it smoke? run rough? power? Has EGR and intercooler manifold etc been cleaned of carbon/oil mist buildup?

Hi Tourboy,it takes about 20 to 30 sec to get the motor to start as long as the battery is fully charged.The starter seems to wind faster the longer you crank it.Sometimes it blows smoke.I,m not sure about the later part of your Question.When starting hot,sometimes the engine light will disappear and then will restart straight up and the next time it won,t.

If it cranks slow AND you have a new battery, the only pieces left are the leads and connections in the start cables, (never big enough even when new). Made to a minimum spec.
While cranking a decent mechanic will check for voltage drop across each cable run before replacing starter motor. However it could be the starter very dry in it's bearings or poor brush contact.
It seems no one these days ever removes and services starter motors and cleans and lubricates them with decent lube oil and grease in geared sections.
If you do it makes and amazing difference if lube is the problem.
If the starter is sound but dry it is cheaper to lube a starter than buy a new one.

After that is functioning correctly other problems may not be there.

Hi Swampy.The testing these days can't track the problem to one part of the system.It seems like the auto shops do well out of supplying parts{that you don't really need} just keep replacing them until something works.Cheers mate,goodluck.

Thanks everyone for your input.The new starter did the trick.As soon as you hit the key it starts.You don,t realise how slow the old starter motor was.Cheers
