artushi is an unknown quantity at this point
Greatings to all of you,

I own a bmw 525 tds '95, which is running very good so far, but I have a small problem!!
When the engine is hot, it takes more time to start the engine. Dont have the problem when the engine is cold not even when its very cold. Does anybody know what might be the problem?or to which board should I refer to?

thanks in advance
Artan

The more common diesel engine problem is not to start when cold. This sounds to the contrary. Does a Timing chain problem makes sense?

I am afraid can not be much of further help on diesel engine except by saying these engines are notorious in terms of filters and proper tune ups. I'll do some further reseach and let you know. ANY BMW DIESEL ENGINE EXPERTS ON BOARD; ANYONE?

We all do for the obvious reason: BMW diesel is not THE THING in the US market! Makes me rethink it when paying $2 for a gallon of Gas!!! For real why this is the case???

well from the place where I come from, owning a diesel is really important b/c of the fact that gas is expensive. (like most of countries in Eu), and the difference on power is quit small specially on new cars,
anways
thanks BillB for your replies, let me know if you find something (web site or something)that I could refer to.

Hey there

I had the same problem; took it to my local BMW specialist and it was as simple as replacing the (new) aftermarket battery my uncle had put in with an official BMW one. The difference was amazing - previously the engine turned over quite slowly before starting, but with the new battery it starts almost immediately.

Hope this helps (and if anyone reads this and can answer my question in this forum "525 TDS Inconsistent Turbo" in return, I'd be very grateful!)

hard starting -engine hot.

that is usually attributed to your engine shut-off mechanism stuck. check all linkages to you injection system.

Since diesels have no ignition, shut off is done by air or fuel cut off. Those are the systems to look at.

here in Germany gas is rite now 1.55 /liter, that's... 2.44 $/liter, so 11 bucks per gallon

I fill up in Switzerland, it's only 9 bucks there

btw for the first time in German history Diesel is now MORE expensive than gas.
Thanks, China!
