Hi am having trouble with my 159 starting. I thought it may have been a problem with the fuel cut our switch and have had it replaced, but the car sometimes still does not start. What happens is when I start the car the engine turns over ok, but is not firing. If I leave and go back to it an hour later, it usually start first time, but recently it now seems to take up to three hours to start.
Another intermittent problem I seem to be having starting this week is a lack of power in reverse,first and second gear. The turbo gauge doesn't seem to be rising when this happens. Just before christmas I had the same problem and the garage changed the ERV (exahust something valve) which seemed to sort the problem for a short while, but the problem seems to be back. Can anyone help please?
