Car stopped running

Postby hsr2.6 » Sun Jan 20, 2013 1:58 pm

Bit of a tricky one this, I've had the car running in the garage a few times , then last week it was ticking over bringing it up to temp to make sure the fan worked and it cut out, first thought no juice as gauge was very low, jerry can later still doesn't want to start. Now funny thing is went to try it today and it fired on the the first crank and then nothing,

It's am m44 1.9 I've got a spark and fuel

Crisis averted, the fuel pump decided to dismember itself in the tank, old one fished out new one in car perfecto.

No warning! That's worrying. I might have to make contingency plans for ours.
