help! a list of problems
After months of not using it I've finally put my 156 back together. I have a few problems, any advice on any of the issues would be greatly received. Its a 1.8ts. Which just had its head gasket re done.
1. It gets hot, only when stationary for a while and the fan doesn't cut in at any temp! All wires seem to be in place
2. Tick over is very lumpy, seems to run be missing on one cylinder almost, and if you floor the throttle it will hesitate cough and splutter for a split second before reving up as it should.
3. While driving, if you come to a stop after high revs it will stall. Normally after a trip up the motor way.
Valve timing was done with the locking tools, its not pressurising,
Any thoughts anyone
