Hi, can anyone please help?
Had some problems starting recentley (from cold so i don't think it's crank sensor, theres about 850 Ohms across the connector) thought it might be the knackered old spark plugs so replaced them this morning but alas no joy.
After spending a while reading through the forums I did the following
cleaned the little relays infront of the battery with wet n dry (they were filthy)
wd40'd the sensor connections on top of the inlet manifold
pressed the fuel priming button under the passenger seat
checked the valve at the end of the fuel bar still very little fuel (a few drops) coming out
when turned on there is a low volume high pitched squell coming from the throttle body don't know if that is the fuel pump in the same area?
took the fuel pipe off of the bar and turned the engine over but nothing came out
sounds like fuel pump to me but where is it???
can you help please
oh and before anyone says so i put 5 litres of fuel in it this morning
