Back with new set of problems linked with old issues as well !
-glow plugs were replaced in 2015 January because original ones were talking little longer then usual to fully heat up, now from the day i got new gear installed cold start problem persists.
After removing all the glow plugs and checking them individually it was found that all of the 4 were burnt and not working so I got the old OEM ones installed which were bit weak still worked. They started to take nearly 4 glow timers to start a dead cold engine that too on many rotations however when they were taken out they used to start the engine in 1 glow timer and 4,5 rotations that too in winters.
-last week I got another set of glow plugs installed hoping that cold start issue will be resolved but the glow plugs were again burnt just as I turned the key to switch 'on' where i wait for glow timer. And as i cranked the engine battery acted as it was almost dead and than again came to life after the new glow plugs burnt.
-point I am trying to link is that my car is not accepting any other glow plugs except for OEM part and it burns it right away.
-on OEM plugs too it takes 4 glow timers, why ?
-anyways I bought brand new 4 OEM glow plugs just the same as original ones in shape but the ones came out were 11v and the ones I got now have written 12V on it. Now these have not burnt and still working but are unable to start the cold engine but a slight push will start it always.
-one more thing is that my engine is reducing oil, like 1L in 700kms approx, I want to get its valve seals changed but no one is ready to do according to Zulfiqar bhai's way so still searching for the one who agrees on it.
-w.r.t. oil reduction: engine produces light tik tik tik kind of sound when low on oil which increases/decreases along with the rpm and when it's topped up with oil the tik tik sound vanishes.
P.S. my car's CSD is working, rad has coolant, fans auto, valve clearances checked, battery is AGS gr85 installed 18-20months back, pump done by Cummins pk. Engine runs great and fuel avg is also nice, hot start is perfect.
Now what am I missing which is making this cold start issue ?
Mechanics r saying "hum apko pichay 6,7 saal se keh rahay hain k engine kamzor hai lekin ap mantay hi nahi, ab pura beth gaya hai apka engine aur overhaul hoga"
I don't agree with them and wont be going for overhaul unless I get it compression tested and the person who has agreed to test it's compression for me is out of Karachi and will return after a week or so.
@xulfiqar bhai and other experts kindly help.
