She wonta starta

My 155 V6 has been standing quite a while. I want to get her back and running and either go back to driving her ( hate the driving position) or else I'm up for sensible offers.

I have power up to the coil pack but nowt beyond there. It would seem highly likely that the coil pack is therefore fubar'd. Does anyone have either a, a spare for sale. b any better ideas or C, the cash to buy her off me?

cheers John in Bedford UK

Hmm you should have 4 wires to the coil one will be a 12volt live will be a earth and the other two should flash earth signals when the engine is cranked(you need a power probe or similar to check this)So it might not be the coil pack

Have you tried putting a spare plug into a lead and laying on the rocker cover and cranking the engine to see if you`ve got a spark

Have you got fuel supply to the injectors?????

How long has it been stood as fuel "goes off" and might be contaminatedwhich will stop it starting or the valve seats maybe corroded or unseated and not seating properly which will stop it starting
