Astep by step guide to change glo pluggs on my vaxhall movano 3500di van as van not starting also glo plug indicator not coming on on dash have checked all fuses all ok got glo pluggs from garage just need little help to find and take out old replace with new

Answers

I don't advise you to try to change the glow plugs if you are not experienced. You can easily snap off one of the plugs and then the cylinder head will have to be removed to rectify it. Hugh from City of Glasgow

check you are getting power to the plugs as these vans have a common fault of the cables chaffing through mark wharton from Shropshire

recently had problems starting the van after a cold spell so bought new battery with no effect, did the usual checking fuses and connectors to the heat plugs and still nothing, bump started it and got it to the garage, mechanic got it running saying all it was in the end was the fuse for the heat plugs. checked fuses but thought ok must of missed something. now doing same again and fuses are fine. where is the fuse forvthe heat plugs because ive checked them all and no idea where this one is Please someone help as going insane

Answers

There are two fuse boxes but I don't know which one contains the fuse you're looking for. one is in the passenger side footwell and the other is under the radiator expansion tank in the engine bay (Yes really! what a bloody stupid place to put a fuse box). Have you checked both? john smith from Aberdeenshire

Answer this question

Ken Polus, Highland

Vauxhall Movano

Battery was going flat after about a week of not being used so I fitted a new battery of the correct size. It went flat same as before so I charged it and bought and connected a solar charger. when I started it the next day the Stop light and the Battery charging light stayed on and the ABS and the airbag lights came on shortly after. The battery now discharges overnight but starts and runs ok except for the dash lights staying on. Is there anything obvious that could cause this like the alternator being damaged ? Ken

My van is diesel and I have mistaking putting 27 litres of petrol in it will it be ok if I top up with diesel

Answers

Kay, you ought to drop the fuel out of tank and then put some diesel in and try it. You'll have a decent sized tank in Movano but 27 litres of petrol is a bit much for the engine to handle safely. Winter time, there are people who put a gallon of petrol in full diesel tank to stop the diesel from waxing but that's only 4.5 litres.. not 27 R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi my battery went flat on my Vauxhall mavarno van and the AA came out and jumpstarted it couldn't find the terminal under the Bonnet jump started it directly off the battery I went to the garage and had an alternate to put on and I'm a central locking and indicators don't work any suggestions thanks

Answers

James mate. With respect your question might as well be in Chinese for all the sense it makes. Did you mean the AA man couldn't find the terminal? what terminal? Then you say he jumped it directly from the battery (which is what you would normally do anyway) so no problem there. When you got it to the garage do you mean you've had a new alternator fitted? If I've got that right I'm f*****g amazed but it's likely that you've just blown a couple of fuses joe bloggs from Aberdeenshire
