156 2.0 ts wont start
hi i am trying to drive a black 156 2.0 ts on a 51 plate if the thing would run.
the problem started when a changed the battery in the key fob because the remote central locking wasnt working, it then worked fine until my dad used the car and force of habbit opened it with the key not the button and the alarm went off it then stopped and the car started and ran for about 1 min then cut out in the middle of the road and wouldnt start (the starter motor turns but it will not fire) it has run twice since this for about 5 mins each time then cuts out ive taken it to a local diagnostics company and they said the car is too complicated for them to work on and i have taken it to my main dealer and they said it wuld be a minimum charge of £150 if they fix it or not and another £50 per hour if it runs on, and at the moment i cant chance spending a few hundred quid on it. I have also contacted the previous owner to see if he had any trouble with it in the past and all he could tell me is that it has had a brand new engine about 1000 miles ago but there was no problems fitting it and it ran first time.
does anybody have any ideas? tom_shackson
still not low enough
