Hello there....I've just joined the forum because I thought it would be great to exchange views with............oh heck..........it is that, but at the moment it's because I have a problem with my 156 and wanted to sound a few other people out.
Just had a big-ish service (new plugs) and the cars done about 63k. Went to Devon last month, not a hitch there, back or while on holidays. The car failed to start day before yesterday - turned over beautifully, failed to fire up though. Battery is strong, starter seems to be spinning fine, just not kicking off. After 5-6 attempts it went ok. Took the chance and went to the seaside - no problems later in the day.
Yesterday much worse. Started eventually (same symptoms) and I risked it again but this time I had problems away from home....
Eventually it started and we got home. Last night it repeatedly failed and I left it outside for the first time in it's 2 yrs with me.....sniff
Any ideas on what might be the problem - I opened the bonnet, looked in, closed the bonnet.......
