    Caddy problems, please help :(

    So people, having a stinker with my caddy, if tried to start normally sometimes she fires fine, with a couple of misfire like flutters, sometimes she starts and dies immediately then it cranks for a good 10/15 secs until it fires up properly, but she is as good as gold for the rest of the day drives perfect! She had new tandem pump ( genuine ) and new lift pump ( genuine ) 20k ago so have kind of ruled them out but did have injector seals about 10k ago but know there common to go :/ however if I go to start the van with my foot ever so slightly on the throttle she starts every time but does Deisel Knock a few times for a second or so then settles, PLEASE HELP!!!

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0 we need to know the details of this Caddy.

    Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. Adding your car spec

    Data Sticker/Options Sticker and Engine Codes

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    I've updated your car spec.

    If you click on Settings on the blue bar top right. Then click on Edit Signature on the left you can type in your car spec then you click Preview Signature to see what it looks like then click Save Signature. That will now be shown on every new post you make afterwards.

    Using a diagnostic system, you need to check the cranking rpm. Disconnect the head harness to immobilize the engine, bring up measuring blocks group 001 and one of the zones shoes rpm, zone 2 I think. Then start cranking the engine and keep cranking as the diagnostic system will disconnect as you start cranking and will take a few seconds to reconnect. You need to see a minimum speed of 280rpm being maintained. After the test, reconnect the delete the fault code you will have created.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Ok grand job will do, what is confusing is she fires then sounds very knocky then dies, but if I start her with my foot slightly on the throttle she goes every time just have to hold the revs for a second or 2 until the diesel knocking stops :/ but Iím going to definitely see if the starter is lazy also as that might not be helping matters, I just canít helo but think itís fuel issues
