Starting issues warm engine 200tdi

I am on the road and heading back down to naples and just started noticing an issue with my 200tdi. If I shut off my engine and restart it within 1min it will not start. I need to let it sit for a few minutes and then it starts right up. I am wondering where I should start with my troubleshooting in the morning. Any suggestions would be appreciated....

Does it fail to crank, or cranks but will not start?

Check the nuts on the injectors, make sure they are all tight. Return lines too

sounds electrical. I wonder if the fuel solenoid is craping out. if you cycle power on, do you hear it click in the <1minute of shut off?

If its cranking and not catching the solenoid is likely. Make sure the connection is tight.... and buy a spare just in case.

I'd change the fuel filter and the fuel solenoid. They are both cheap.

FWIW- I keep a spare fuel solenoid in all my tdi's. Cheap insurance for something that can leave you completely stranded if it decides to fail.
Not that they fail often, but its the only piece of electrical equipment that can strand a tdi.

In an emergency, you just pull the guts. Not really much reason to carry a spare, IMO.

Unless you want to turn the truck off!
I was really referring to 'bush' spares. For DD duty no need of course.

You just stall it. Not complicated. 15 years of expedition wheeling almost exclusively with diesel Defenders, I have not seen one fail. Not really at the top of my spares to carry list.

I had one fail!
It was on the way from San Pedro, Chile to Tuzgle, Argentina in the altiplano at ~15,000ft. It was having intermittent starting issues and I thought it was altitude. One day, it wouldn't start. It took a while to figure out and it was the solenoid. I was glad I had one and I have one in the truck all the time now.... but I have a ton of spares.

It takes up no space whatsoever. Better to have it and not need it that to need it and not have it.
