    hi there,
    today found my car was so difficult to start

    turn the ignition on twice , both time struggled a lot and then stalled.

    the dail jump up and down a lot

    the third time , I had to push the accelerater on the floor to get the engine started.


    it is not a perticular old car, 3years and 18k miles. not a perticular cold afternoon 4 C . the fuel guage just turned red.

    happened a few time before, but today is very bad

    I have posted a video on youtube

    Could be gunk in the fuel tank when empty getting into the filter and blocking it?

    I guess it worthwhile paying a visit to a dealer, as the car is still under warranty . thanks guys, at least I know it is not something usual. cheers

    have you got aa/rac cover?

    they will be able to do an ECU fault code scan for you
