Isuzu KB 250 D-Teq hot start issues

Asked by HenkNel Jan 20, 2016 at 12:44 AM about the Isuzu Pickup

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I've got a 2008 Isuzu KB 250 D-teq that is giving me a headache with hot
starts. The engine cranks 100%, attempts to idle but refuses to do so. The
engine will eventually run after a couple of attempts but, in order to get it
running I'm required to step on the excelerator a little bit at the right time, to
soon or to late and it does not start.

Any ideas what might be causing the hot start problems?, I have no problems
with a cold start.
