No mate... nothing else attempted... car outside and its been raining !!
Hi again - Thank you for your reply.Ok - given what you have outlined / what you have tried so far then - unburnt fuel ( wet in the cylinder ) will indicate its not firing on that cyl.I suspect you have then either have a failed injector on No. 3 ( or a bad wire / connector to it )... or, a mechanical fault in the engine - ie, a burned valve is the usual .So you now need to check the wiring to the injector there - With the engine running you can touch each injector in turn- you should feel a pulsing / clicking indicating a working one - so check 1 2 first - then 3...If thats not felt, thats your issue - feed or injector.If thats ok - do a compression test to confirm a valve issue or the like as above - that if proven would then require removal of the top cover to check for any other issues such as in the cam / valve train- after that -if thats ok, the head will have to come off to deal with the valve issue--as found.Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now at this point- Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that ... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --Best Rgds, MIKE
