Car will not start. Help please. Advice needed.
To start with a few days on a normal journey to work I noticed car was not picking up revs at all and I was driving to work at snails pace. But half way into my 10mile trip to work suddenly the problem cleared up and car was back to normal again. Well the no issue for a few days until yesterday......
After work jumped back into the car and it started but within 2-3 seconds got cut off. Tried a few times but kept on cutting off as soon as I tried putting my foot down on accelerator but no luck car kept on cutting off and I noticed some smoke coming out the exhaust and a funny gas smell. I gave up called the RAC and towed it home.
Car will not start. Will be taking it to garage tomorrow but does anyone have a clue what it could be. The Rac driver mentioned maybe it could be a dodgy fuel pump valve.
Does anyone have any advice for me on what it could be? Help needed bigtime here. Gutted car is down and out.
