Hi guys looking for some opinions. Further to my starting issues I manage to get fuel pressure readings which I think are a little low. When I turn ignition on so that the electric pump primes I get a reading of 62psi. That's low right? When cranking that goes up to around 1750psi, is that also low. But when it finally starts and idling its around 3633psi which I believe is normal. Any thoughts are as always much appreciated

I'll check mine later using Torque Pro but that sounds the same as mine.

Unfortunately not, what's the issue and what have you tried?

Bad starting. Hot starting is worse than cold though. Had faulty glow plug module and 5 shot glow plugs so changed all 6 and module. Changed crank position sensor and made no difference. Unless I got a duff sensor but unlikely. Changed diesel filter and checked pipes. No codes on reader.

If I leave ignition on for about 20 seconds before trying to start it when its at temperature it seems to be better but still takes a long time to fire but will eventually. If I just turn the key it will take about 3 times of the starter timing out before it fires. I wouldn't mind if it ran rough once started but it doesn't. Runs and drives fine and smoothly although is quite hesitant when I put my foot down before it boosts up and takes off so to speak. My next step was going to be cam sensor but I'm told this throws a code if it's dead or dying. So other than injectors I'm stumped

I have the same problem. Did you find out what it was? apparently it could be the fuel pump on its way out but im not sure
