Golf VII 2014 1.6 TDI.
I have been having a proglem with morning long crank. Every next fire up the engine stars right away. Outside temp no relevant. A new battery swapped.
Below some diagostic videos made with vcds.
Still it is not the longest crank I have been sufering from.
No ideoa where problem is.
Could You point any irregularities on vcds videos?

I’m not sure if this would help & if you have this in your model motor but give it a shot

The long crank every morning method is a simple way to get your engine running without having to mess around with carburetors, jets, or choke settings. In order to do this, you need to have a good understanding of how your engine works. You should know what each cylinder does and how they work together to make your car run. If you don't understand how your engine runs, then you won't be able to properly diagnose any problems. Seeing 222

What are you trying to say? read horoscope? I have more that basic knowledge but no mechanic area of experience nor knowledge about dizel correct values on vcds. Hence my presence on the forum.

Small updade. I have been testing - according to mechanic \s advice with outside temperature. Above 15 celcius (16 and up) long crank appears. Lower than 15 no long crank. Don't know what else to diagnose on vcds.

How to diagnose it? No idea how to deal with it. I have vcds by the way.
One thing you can try is just disconnect the coolant temp sensor in the morning and see if it starts better or check your coolant temperature by using your VCDS & compared to what the gauge in the car says

Hey guys, any fixes for the long cranking problem yet?
I started investigating/reading into forums once I started noticing my car did this as well.
Obviously it's all the Vag diesel doing this . I see it on forums VW, Skoda, SEAT, AUDI...
Hope to get this fixed, or find someone who can tell me a 100% solution ( VVT, fuel pressure or pump, starter,... many answers come by but none gives me a 100% solution)
Or should I accept it as 'a feature' (which is BS!).
I can tell you my previous car, an old Volvo diesel always started straight away,on a flick of the key, no problems ever, being it cold/ warm, wet/dry... thanks for the help.
