Baz suggested Quick Start which worked and the Jag started

This answer was rated:

Baz suggested Quick Start which worked and the Jag started with no problems for 3 days.Then it won't, even with Quick Start. It turns over but won't fire. We've had heavy dew in the mornings, but after temperatures in 30's during the days, it still won't fire. Recharged the battery, new fuel filter.......

What is going on with your vehicle ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It's all in my last 'questions'. Jag X, 2006. Since we had it 3 months ago, it's been running perfectly. Suddenly wouldn't start. Cranks but won't fire. After replacing battery, fuel filter and other bits, still won't start. First time using Just Answer Baz suggested trying Quick Start. Bingo, started first go. That lasted for 3 days and now it won't start again, still cranks but won't fire. Here in Italy the daytime temperatures around 30+ but mornings are now a bit damp.

petrol or diesel ?

Thanks I am back one to one it is fitted with Delphi fuel injection great when working but on this system the smallest of air leaks overnight you end up with a crank no start do not use any form of engine start at all

You need the fuel priming equipment and scan tool to start with if you class yourself as a better than average tech then go for it. How far away is the nearest good independent that you can speak to ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
OK Gavin, maybe we'll give that a go. However, the starter motor is now turning the engine over but stopping immediately. The scan tool is just showing P1000. Unfortunately the nearest garage is a way, we're in the middle of nowhere. And all the ones we used to rate have closed down!! We don't have fuel priming equipment but could probably get it. Thanks anyway we'll give it a go, luckily we have an old small runabout so are still mobile.

ok if you want click that phone request then I can give you my personal email so you can get hold of me outside J A if not feel free to rate me regards Gavin.
