Alfa 156 not starting :S
My 1.6 2001 alfa 156 won't start :S, was driving it the other day and it spluttered and died, my first instinct was no fuel ( the petrol light was on but i was sure i had plenty in the tank ) so I got a fiver worth in a petrol can and tried that. No joy.
The engines trying to start, starter motor is going but nothing else. Theres fuel getting to the engine, took the fuel line out and it was shooting out of that so it doesnt look like its a fuel issue ( unless its the injectors ). Tried but to no avail to get the spark plugs out to see if they are sparking but I couldnt see how to do it, looked like you needed a special key to get the plugs off. ( I got the plastic engine cover off easy enough )
Is there anything that its common to be?
Any one know of a good garage in Glasgow that won't rip you off? Bearing in mind transporting it won't be easy.
Any helps great, thanks!
