  1. I am running into a really puzzling and irritating issue. My 2005 cdi starts fine cold. Then when I stop the car, get out and then return after 10 15 minutes the car will not initiate start. Two or more blobs on the thermostat and and the car will not crank or make any effort to start. When it drops to one blob the car starts like nothing is wrong. Reading forum after forum the probable cause seems to relate to the crankcase sensor. However the cdi location is not the same as petrol and tutorials refer to petrol. I cannot locate the sensor. I have a parts car and can swap out the sensor..... when I can find it. Tolsen you seem to have a real good grasp on cdis and your find on the article on the Smart/Mitsubishi engine was a real interesting discovery. Do you have any idea where the sensor is located and can I get to it with basic tools? Has anyone any other thoughts or experiences with this kind of problem? Thanks again for reading this post. Obviously this is my first time. Sorry for the length.
