Further to the last missive, we now have regular sparks and lots of fuel.
The ECU, since being unplugged for a while, has reverted to the 4-4-4-4 Flash fault code, which means "No faults". The Thot Plickens.
Lovely signal coming in from the flywheel sensor, and since I have the lid off the ECU, I have been monitoring it on the ECU side of the connector where it is still robust.
I'm beginning to wonder if somebody added bodily fluids to the fuel while I was in Sainsburys. The plugs are wet but there's no way of saying, with what? It smells more like petrol than p**s, but it would, wouldn't it? Anybody got a good test? You'd think it would fire just occasionally even so, but not a hint. Maybe if I decant a pint into a milkbottle I will be able to see if it separates. Which would float on top, fuel or the other stuff? I expect any watery liquid would sink to where the pump draws from???
Trouble you get with an overactive imagination, eh? All the logical analysis has gone out of the window, and I'm clutchin' at straws.
A Holmes and Watson moment - "when you have exhausted all the likely explanations, what remains, however improbable, must be the answer". Exhausted is right, anyway....
Marconi with sparks ... ... ... ... ( I bet nobody gets this one...)
Even if the cam belt had jumped a tooth (seems well tensioned) when I went over the bumps I'd expect a few backfires and smoke and maybe mangled pistons but it all just went quiet. Any opinions?
