Stall - Restart ... why so long ?


I recently stalled my 159Ti in the middle of the A90 near Dyce ... FFS why does it take so long to re-start this 2.4 Diesel engine ... I was sitting there getting redder and redder whilst the relays etc whirr and click ... meanwhile the traffic is bearing down on my at 80mph ... I saw my life flash before me ...

I'd like to thank the selfish B****** who pulled across my car and caused me to stall in the first place .....


how do I get the staining off my tan leather seats ?

Er because diesel is the work of satan?

Kidding, I dunno mate, engine flooding in some bizarre way? JTS restarts really quickly (I stall the wife's JTS spider from time to time as it hasn't been, ahem, breathed on like mine)

Takes a long time to restart ? The one and only time I managed to stall my 2.4TI (and it wasn't easy to stall) I just pressed the 'Start' button and off she went
