I have a MY17 D2, what's the cold start procedure? Do you turn the ignition on first to allow pre heat or do you just dump the clutch and start straight from cold and pre heat happens automatically?
Not particularly but noticed yesterday which was probably the coldest morning we have had so far 4c I pressed the button and there was a slight delay before the starter started so was unsure if it took a moment to pre heat to take place.I just put the key in, dump the clutch and press the start button and hey presto it starts...No waiting or pre-heat.
Do you suspect you have a problem?
Hope this helps,
Yeah mine has been too until yesterday, I'll monitor it, I've only had mine a few months too so haven't had it through a cold spell yet.Ok..I have only had my D2 V40 a few months and it is garaged but currently I have no delay on starting at all. All instant starting for me....So far!
That's what I've had done, the pipe thing 👍🏻 glad you're up to speed. That's what the fire risk was.Re-your Inlet Manifold recall.
Well I decided to call into my local dealer, Marshall, Derby who were very helpful and checked the car also looked and checked on the the Volvo system and said that there is no inlet manifold recall needed for my car and remarked that the inlet bleeder pipe was replaced under a recall last year.
So all good for me it seems, thanks for the info though.
Yes I have noticed that and may well switch them off. I've got the heated mirrors too along with the heated windscreen and heated seats, think that's the winter pack isn't it? Just thought I was imaging the delay between pressing the button and the starter motor starting.You may find another couple of things when the temp drops below 6C
The rear demister/heated window will magically come on and will show on your button in the car (also includes the heated side mirrors if you have that option).
The above can be switched off in the car menu.
Personally I switch it off as I don't want the wear and tear on the window heater element when not required when 80% of the time it isn't at just under 6C.
Yeah, the Winter pack.Yes I have noticed that and may well switch them off. I've got the heated mirrors too along with the heated windscreen and heated seats, think that's the winter pack isn't it? Just thought I was imaging the delay between pressing the button and the starter motor starting.
Yes it certainly gets toasty, I had a safety recall done yesterday, inlet manifold pipe or something so they lent me a XC60 B5 hybrid auto, that was a bit of a monster and boy was it quick. Volvo seem to be steering away from diesels these days, wasn't that long ago when it was the best thing since sliced bread. Modern diesels are by far better and cleaner than petrol engines. They should concentrate of getting the smokey heaps off the road.Yeah, the Winter pack.
Took me two years to realise that the front screen demister button has both AIR and ELECTRIC Heaters on 1 or 2 presses.
It heats up the screen/cabin with an electric heater rather than waiting for the engine to warm up.
Great for warming you up on cold mornings.
I find engine heat from diesels is not really hot enough
