I own an ETAP 32S sailboat (2014) with a Volvo
MD2020 Diesel engine
refuses to start unless I give it a blast of starter fluid.
One the engine starts, I have no problem restarting it for about a day but, if I let is sit for 24 hours, it will not restart. It will restart after about 8 attempts if after my last use of the day, I close the fuel
shut-off valve but not always and I may have to use the starting fluid again.
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of trouble? A local marine Volvo marine Diesel
company here in Florida
told me that they do not even want to service
this model, which in fact is a Perkins
. Any words of wisdom?
It looks like I may have a leak between the fuel pump
and the tank but I am not sure on how to address that,
