And still the ace engine won't start!!!!!!!!!
Iv'e searched the other threads and whilst similar do not quite answer my problem.
Travelling down the road the other day the 2.0 16v coupe died without notice.Towed it home and tried to source the fault but to no avail.The RAC couldn't find the fault and suggested plugs and a dizzy cap....PAH! Wot £60 for no reason,don't think so!
Anyway i checked at the metering head and there was a leak in the main braided fuel line to the head,changed that and it made no difference,the car cranks but doesn't start,well i say that but once or twice it did turn over but ran for only 10 seconds.Still wont start,checked the dizzy cap and it was fine,as well as the rotor.Besides the distributor has been reconditioned from probe about a year ago so i dont think that is it.i placed a steel rod at the plug end of all the leads and got a spark arcing to an earthing point,i also suspected the injectors so i cleaned them and checked all the fuel lines to those places.I even replaced the whole metering head with a used one but there is plenty of pressure coming in from the previously changed fuel line so i dont think that is it,as a last resort i even did change the plugs but again made no difference,the plugs appear to be wet when cranking so i think that this is ok only that the first plug(nearest the bulkhead)is blacker than the others??
I am still presuming that it may be the hall sender or do these 16v's have an ignition module-could that be at fault?? but without vagcom i am stuck!
Does anybody know the procedure to check these parts in laymans terms?
