When it runs, it runs like a total heap, to be honest, yeah. It'll stay running for about a minute, but then die - You can tell it's really, really struggling to keep itself running. It coughs and splutters and the idle speed drops right off ... then it'll come back up again, but then it'll drop back down. I can put my foot on the accelerator and nothing happens - it doesn't respond to throttle at all.
The battery has been checked by the local "battery people" and, by the looks of things, the EGR is brand new - it's definitely too clean to be original. It's secured with very brand new bolts, too. But I'll do anything to rule it out!
I do worry about the injectors - it's something that I'm always nervy about now, since paying out £600 on our old Golf to get everything replaced! Worrying that it might happen after a few years though!!
What fuel pressure should we expect? My father-in-law reckons it doesn't seem as powerful as he would expect?
Also - there's no click from the solenoid on the fuel pump, when it primes? Is this right? He said he should feel a click?
