  1. Hope you get to the bottom of it mate I can't stand electrical problems Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. My car has finally started :) put my new age coil packs in and it started straight up so I'm the spark wasn't strong enough from my coil packs so working car and worth while mod at the same time win win did you find out why you'd start running? Thanks for all the help guy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yh I've got all my dash lights as normal I hope it's something as simple as that for you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yh I have Clifford alarm and immobiliser which cuts all power to the car when it's on but it disables as it should so can't see that being the problem going to try bump starting it when traffic calms down see if that makes any difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I think the engine is flooded each time I take the plugs out there coved in fuel so it's getting there and injectors are firing on my fpr there is a gauge and there is no drop in pressure when cranking just can't figure out why it won't fire up just struggling to find a way to test each coil pack for sparks as everything is painted and the sun is shining right on my engine just really don't understand how changing fuel filter can cause all this then got the Mrs moaning cuz we mant to be going away in it on Saturday lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hope you have better luck with your car and it's easier fix then mine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I've still had no luck put the plugs back in put blow torch on them before to clear any crap off them and nothing just turning over think I will wait till later and try bump start it down the road as I live on a main road there is a strong smell of fuel from the exhaust Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I've left them out for a couple hours again going to put them back in soon on the plus side It only takes 10mins to get the plugs in and out now if it don't work will try a bump start tonight Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Since having it mapped when I start it cold it idles around 1500 but once warm it's fine so just been living with it till got a few more things done then get it tweaked but whenever I do anything to it it does this then it's a right pain to get it started once it starts it's fine until I change something lol and no I haven't fitted one yet it is on the list of thing after I get back from holiday along with a air fuel gauge :) Does it sound right to you the cold start is chucking in too much fuel which floods it I've just never known it be so hard to start which makes me think there is another problem but everything is fine and it ran fine should have just left it alone lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yh they were all mapped in only thing that has changed since the map 6 months ago is the fuel filter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I could ask him if he was easier to get hold of by time I get a reply it will be sorted lol every time I've removed battery in the past it's been fine I will try taking the crank sensor off see if that helps I've had engines in and out a number of times and never had this problem I think it is to do with the map I've got a feeling it puts to much fuel in on cold start as I run maffless I've never had a car flood and not start as much as this one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Haven't got switchable maps yet I did remove the battery yesterday as it started to die from cranking it so should have reset it while it was out and my fuel lines don't go near that earth anymore as I've got parallel fuel line going so start on it again in about an hour hopefully today is the day it runs again I almost got them the wrong way round awhile ago so put labels on them :) could there be air in the fuel system and if so how would I get it out or does it bleed its self?

  13. Vac lines and fpr are ok and tps and temp sensor haven't been touched I did take the idle control valve off tonight clean and refit with new gasket as it has been abit all over the place on idle still no joy I do get strong smell of fuel when cranking haven't had any pops it's not even tried to start I've left all plugs out at the mo to let it dry out I have a alcatek ecu can they be reset?

  14. Yh the filer is the right way I've checked 3 times after seeing how many people have put it in wrong way lol and it's coil on plug there all in the right way checked that aswell running out of ides now thought it was going to be a easy job every time I do anything to my fuel system it seems to flood its self and can't figure out why Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I haven't noticed the smell of fuel from exhaust but will check in the morning as out work now it seems like it keeps flooding its self as when I took the new spark plugs back out there was fuel on them checked the spark plugs and I am getting spark so can't understand it did think about jump starting as I live on a hill but if it don't work I'll be stuck at the bottom Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
