Latest issue -
oil light coming on after vehicle has run for some time. ( got hot ).
changed the oil pressure switch . put a leyland oe rs. 380/- labour 250/- ( terrible location - poor access. ) Tata oe (Pricol ) rs.1060/- but not readily available at TASS or outside.
problem sorted out.

Now starting problem.... Diesel drains downline somewhere from fuel filter assembly ( probly a small valve spring gone weak ). fro a fortnight car started first time with slow knocking like a coupe of cylinders not firing or firing slow.... got plugs checked found ok. runs well after start during day.
starts on half crank but starts slowly.
visua;ize this....

starts grgrgrgrgrgrgr ( for about 30 /40 seconds ) then without any throttle input gets to grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ( normal duriNG rest of the journey ) http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/images...rustration.gif

have checked everything form fuel line , heater plugs , FIP ( for leakage) , changed the fuel filters elements . not found anything amiss.
it has to be the fuel filter assmebly valve springs. has anybody faced this ?
earlier happened only first time in the morning or after a couple of days without run. noW started happening on starting after an hour or so.
