difficult starting after standing for several days

Postby johnaboy183 » Tue Sep 14, 2021 3:36 pm

I have noticed of late that if my car ( 2.0TDI 170) stands for more than few days it takes numerous cranking attempts to start. Once started its fine and starts first time every time. I am figuring diesel drain back on standing and thought I once read there was a non return valve in the fuel line that could cause the problem. Can anyone shed any light on this for me please?
