Hesitating Start When Parked Slightly Hilly

Recommended Posts

Q: Anyone noticed that the car starts somewhat hesitating and runs very irregularly the first few seconds when it has been parked on a slightly hilly place? A bit like a farmer starting it's tractor :-)

Having no experience with Diesel engines, would that be a normal thing?

Yes, indeed

Just think it's odd b/c never had this with my previous car (petrol Saab 9-3)

my mate used to always have this problem whenever he parked the car facing uphill for a while - the car was meant to have a 1 way check valve that was to stop the fuel draining back to the tank but it didnt work ( never confirmed it had one just what he had been told by the service dept)

you could always try parking face down the hill?
