I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.


this would most commonly be caused by a failed fuel pump. I am not sure how you've tested yours, but there are two and both need to be checked. If can also be due to an injection system fault


if the engine light is on, there should be a fault stored. You will need to take the car to a main dealer or specialist shop that has the computer diagnostic equipment to read out the faults.
