GTV Turns over but wont start

I was trying to sort a high tickover problem out on one of my GTV's it idles at around 1500 RPM but i cannot find out how to slow it down, i checked all electrical connections cleaned and duck oiled them to stop corrosion. Was also recommended to spray some WD40 and carburettor cleaner down into the throttle body to make sure that the flap was opening and closing properly. When to start it and all it does is turns over but wont fire up. Now i have noticed when i turn the ignition on the fuel guage dial goes straight up past the full tank mark ( I know for fact it only has a quarter of a tank of fuel) is the guage reading a clue to an electrical fault, has anyone else experienced this! Anyone got any ideas at all. I want to get this one going so i can sell it!

Re: GTV Turns over but wont start

Sorry I can't help in any real way but an obvious place to start would be to retrace your steps as it's unlikely to be coincidence that you have a problem after doing some work.

Go back over what you have done and see if anything is unplugged or not connected properly.

Of course you can't undo the spray job on the Throttle Body but as your Fuel Gauge is also playing up it does seem to be an electrical problem.

Check and then check again, hope you can find it.
