Mk3 1.4 Won’t Start
Hi, I’ve got problems!
My L reg 1.4 SOHC C14NZ engine mk3 Astra won’t start.
The battery is good and I’m getting a spark at the spark plugs (is there a way of telling if the spark is strong enough?).
I can try turning the car over for 1 min , which it does fine, and the engine will not fire at all until I turn the key to give up and then it will fire for ½ a second and then stop.
One moring in 4 it will turn over, fire after 5 secs and run all day. If I get it going it runs ok.
Also I’ve got no experience with fuel injection. Is there a way for me to get some petrol into the cylinders to see if the problem is fuel starvation like I used to do with carbs?
Any help with diagnosis would be great,
It’s cold walking!
