Non starting 147
Hi i wonder if any one can help im not too dumb on cars but this has thrown me.
I blew the engine on my 147 when we had bad rain and i went paddling.
So i bought another doner car with good engine placed this into mine and it started and ran but had running prob realized that i didn't change the air box which was for one with cruise control and this confused the comp so had red down pipes and variator knock.
I have now changed the air box with my original one and just cant start the car have purged the fuel and all is well there,
If i spray ether in the box i get sort of cough i want to start so removed plugs dropped 5ml of fuel down to see if i could get it to fire, bearing in mind that i am working on my drive way and it is probably really damp around the engine.
Cleared all comp codes of faults as i have got everything correct,(well maybe not so),
getting flash of dash computer screen followed by a bleep bleep bleepbleep and of course no start up it ran ok before can any one help with what this fault may be what i have done wrong.
I have persisted on this since before crimbo and so far stayed calm, please some one help with some ideas for me to try.
Thank you martin in plymouth.
