Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

Please tell me exactly what tests / checks etc you have had done so far for this issue...

What is its service /recent repair history?

Rgds, MIKE..............................

Mike,


 


I tried disconnecting the battery as it seems like an electrical issue, made no difference, the car runs fine all of the time but when it wont start, which is getting more frequent, it also seems to tick over at lower revs.


 


Also tried squeezing the priming bulb but makes no difference.


 


May be un related but sometimes the cruise control fluctuates a bit too where normaly it sits rock solid at what ever speed you set.


 


The car has done 60K and was last serviced at 56K, the fuel filter etc where all changed then. It had no problems at all for the first 3k after the service. I'm unsure of the service history before I owned it at 56K.


 


Fuel comsumption and power are ok too, its never gone into limp mode like some of the older models did and there are no lights on the dash indicating a fault.

Hi Mike,

It starts first time most of the time and runs ok, just more and more frequently it doesn't want to start.

Hello again Chris -

Thank you for that -

In case I catch you before you go - can you just tell me - when you say you squeezed the primer bulb and that made no difference.... was the bulb / is the bulb hard...or soft when you come to do that ?

Mike,


 


The bulb looks quite new but the plastic/rubber feels quite stiff when you squeeze it.
