  1. Hello all, my 450cdi turned itself off after 5 minutes of running with fresh alternator and serpentine belt. After it turned itself off, it cranked, but wouldn't start afterwards. Any suggestions? Everything seems in place. Quick update: Same thing happened today. Fuel pumping through both send and return lines. Ran for a few minutes, blip of gas, and engine dies. Attempts to fire at first crank rotation, but continues cranking with no catching. Exact same thing happened one year ago, and car hasn't been started since then, until today. It seems to have both fuel and spark. Could this be a problem with air- fuel mixture?
  2. Hi, First post in this forum, just bought my 06 Pure with 208,000 kms. Turning the ignition switch to start usually takes 3-4 tries before it will turn the starter. The starter has been changed with a new one by PO, so that's not the problem. According to PO it's been doing this for 1 year, but it always starts, eventually. Where is the relay that powers up the starter solenoid? I'm in the process of buying a service manual off eBay. Love the car already.
