Hi Guys, In need of help again,
Q4 is built up and by the looks of everything its ready to go, however its refusing to start,
I turn the ignition on and first I hear a clicking noise from some sort of device connected to the breather hose which comes off the main inlet pipe to the manifold, sometimes simultaneously(spelling
) with the ignition going on it will backfire and spit rust from the exhaust all over my Dads spider
, I find this unusual seeing as the engie hasnt even turned yet
Once I try to start, the engine will turn over and most times catch for a milisecond and make the starter motor speed up but then goes to normal turning over with no much happening
Tried some of that "start you ba5tard" spray stuff and is the same.
I have just dumped a gallon of Optimax in seeing as the car hasnt run for about a year and a half I think, didnt seem to help,
at the beginning the fuel filter was leaking from where I had changed it and bodged a dodgy copper washer on, fixed that(all but a tiny drip) with no change.
Battery eventually discharged and gave up, I have checked for spark on Cyl1, petrol is getting through, timing is correct, electrics and fuses seem ok,
I did change the chip back to standard from the Squadra and the code light does not stay on.
What can be wrong? Thanks for any help, it really is appreciated
