Seat Ibiza: Starting and stopping the engine

Seat Ibiza Owners Manual

Seat Ibiza / Seat Ibiza Owners Manual / Operating instructions / Driving / Starting and stopping the engine

The engine can only be started using a genuine SEAT key with the correct code. – Move the gear lever to the neutral position and depress the clutch pedal fully and hold it in this position, the starter will then only have to turn the engine. – Turn the ignition key to position to start the engine.

– Let go of the ignition key as soon as the engine starts; the starter motor must not be allowed to run on with the engine. After starting a very hot engine, you may need to press the accelerator briefly. When starting from cold, the engine may be a little noisy for the first few seconds until oil pressure has built up in the hydraulic valve compensators. This is quite normal, and no cause for concern. If the engine does not start immediately, switch off the starter after about 10 seconds and try again after about half a minute. If the engine still does not start, the fuel pump fuse should be checked, “Fuses”.

WARNING

• Never start or run the engine in unventilated or closed rooms. The exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, an odourless and colourless poisonous gas. Risk of fatal accidents. Carbon monoxide can cause loss of consciousness. It can also cause death.

• Never leave the vehicle unattended if the engine is running.

• Never use “cold start sprays”, they could explode or cause the engine to run at high revs. Risk of injury.


Caution

• When the engine is cold, you should avoid high engine speeds, driving at full throttle and over-loading the engine. Risk of engine damage.

• The vehicle should not be pushed or towed for more than approximately 50 metres to start the engine. Fuel could enter the catalytic converter and damage it.

• Before attempting to push-start or tow a vehicle to start it, you should first try to start it using the battery of another vehicle. Note and follow the instructions, “Jump-starting”.


For the sake of the environment

Do not warm-up the engine by running the engine with the vehicle stationary. You should drive off as soon as you start the engine. This helps the engine reach operating temperature faster and reduces emissions.

Starting diesel engines

The engine can only be started using a genuine SEAT key with the correct code. – Move the gear lever to the neutral position and depress the clutch pedal fully and hold it in this position, the starter will then only have to turn the engine. – Turn the ignition key to the starting position. – Turn the ignition key to position, fig. 100 . The indication lamp
will light for engine pre-heating.
– When the warning lamp goes out, turn the key to position to start the engine. Do not press the
accelerator. – Let go of the ignition key as soon as the engine starts, the starter motor must not be allowed to run on with the engine. When starting from cold, the engine may be a little noisy for the first few seconds until oil pressure has built up in the hydraulic valve compensators. This is quite normal, and no cause for concern. If there are problems starting the engine, see.

Glow plug system for the diesel engine

To avoid unnecessary load on the battery, do not use any other major electrical equipment while the glow plugs are pre-heating. Start the engine as soon as the glow plug warning lamp goes out.

Starting the engine after the fuel tank has been completely run dry

If the fuel tank has been completely run dry, it may take longer than normal (up to one minute) to start the engine after refuelling with diesel fuel. This is because the system must eliminate air first.

WARNING

• Never start or run the engine in unventilated or closed rooms. The exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, an odourless and colourless poisonous gas. Risk of fatal accidents. Carbon monoxide can cause loss of consciousness. It can also cause death.

• Never leave the vehicle unattended if the engine is running.

• Never use “cold start sprays”, they could explode or cause the engine to run at high revs. Risk of injury.

Switching off the engine

– Stopping the engine. – Turn the ignition key to position, fig. 100   .


After the engine is switched off the radiator fan may run on for up to 10 minutes, even if the ignition is switched off. It is also possible that it will turn itself on once more if the temperature of the coolant increases due to the elimination of built up heat in the engine compartment or if this is heated due to prolonged exposure to the heat of the sun.

WARNING

• Never switch off the engine until the vehicle is stationary.

• The brake servo works only when the engine is running. You will need more strength to brake the vehicle when the engine is switched off. As you cannot brake in the normal manner, there is a greater risk of accidents and serious injury.

• The steering lock can engage immediately when the key is removed from the ignition lock. The vehicle cannot be steered. Risk of accident.


Caution

If the engine has been driven hard for a long period, the engine could overheat when it is switched off. Risk of engine damage. For this reason, you should idle the engine for approx. 2 minutes before you switch it off.
