Starting problem

Post by Tim906 » Wed Jan 01, 2020 1:15 pm

Hi, I'm new to this but hopefully someone can help me please.
I own a 2010 J10 Nissan Qashqai and recently been having trouble with it starting in the mornings but eventually it starts.
There are no codes coming up and I've had the coolant temperature sensor change but still not good.
Been thinking could it be the fuel filter but that's a wild guess?
Hopefully someone can help me out on this issue

Not an expert but worth putting some V Power and then Redex to clean injectors, etc. There are also other addatives you can put in the fuel tank to clean injectors and the carbon build up. Maybe a cheaper solution to rule out it sn't related to dirty injectors or carbon build up.

i had that on mine when there was a crack on the inlet pipe.... started with difficult starting then on a long run it cracked and caused the DPF to fail
worth looking at your inlet pipes to check for wear and damage
