Petrol pump helped needed please
I've swapped the engine of my 146Ti 2L recently, (it's a long story, but I blame the wife...!), and had a devil of a time getting the new (previously running) engine started. Everything turned over but wasn't getting any fuel through to the injectors. Checked the fuel cut off switch under the seat. Wasn't tripped.
Could be a fuel pump problem. Suppose it was, because when I disconnected the fuel pipe from the pump nothing was coming out.
Then, miraculously, with out me doing anything much at all, fuel started to flow. Hurrah! Engine started, ran a bit lumpy for a while then perfectly...
Except, its stopped again. Same story. No fuel flowing.
Has anyone got any idea what might be giving me an intermittent fault like this? Everything, except the engine block and cylinder head is from my original car. Injectors, pump, electrics, etc. I've checked every connection I can lay my hands on and now its beginning to get on my nerves. ANY help would be much appreciated, ta v much.
