You are right about pre heat but I dont have to pre heat my 206 hdi get in turn key fire upFirecat said:Guys
I have to say that I have owned many diesels in the past and my Juke is no noisier on start up or running than the others. My last car was an 09 Mondeo Titanium which gets rave reviews for its engine and the Juke sounds the same at start up. With it "only" having a 1.5 engine it is higher geared than the Mondeo running at 2500 revs at 70MPH as opposed to 2000 revs. The benefit is thatyou can sit at 30MPH on the flatin 6th gear with no problems which helps the MPG.
You should always wait for the pre heat light to go out before starting. I have the Tekna and when you push the start button it won't start until the pre heat light goes off. Use the couple of seconds to put your seat belt on!!
Deks I believe that nissan made the diesel engines on RED jukes louder just to get them noticeddeks36 said:yes mine sounds like a tractor on start up always has, another thing when starting from cold if I don't pre heat it just doesnt want to know.While at the hotel for the Gaydon meet a few other members where quite surprised by how vocal the thing is on start up from cold seriously lacking in sound deadening
