Yep, Pls follow this procedure during ignition if you haven't done it so far. It's clearly mentioned on Owner's handbook Pg. 94 under "Starting procedure for diesel engines". I would rather trust FIAT for their technology instead of locally built up ideas:razz:. They haven't mentioned the reason but i think it may concern to glow plugs & preheated fuel mixture. It is mentioned that as soon ignition coil sign disappear, press the clutch. Also pressing clutch may disengage all the electrical accessories during starting procedure. Hyundai cars (at least diesel Verna & Getz) can't be started until we press the clutch before igntion.
