147 starting issues
My 147 is not starting properly at the moment. Wonder if any one has some ideas what the problem could be. The starter motor is working fine, but at the point when the engine comes off the starter motor and should start ticking over itself the car either
a) splutters badly for several seconds, not responding to the throttle pedal, before finally bursting into normal life,
or b) the engine just dies.
This mornin i prob had to try 15 times to get the engine started, it simply died every time i stopped the starter motor. Problem only really happens when the engine is cold, however even when the engine is at full temp, it is still struggling to start, although no where near as much as when it is cold. Seems like the engine is just not getting the fuel it needs. Any help would be greatly appriciated.
