Hi Guys,

I'm new here and have a question, I bought a mk3 astra (i think, its a P reg, 97) 6 months ago and had no problems at all until last week.

On a cold morning my car wouldn't start, starter going fine but engine wouldn't kick in.

I called my recovery company and the guy who came out said that it was a common problem with the 'wax based' temp sensor on the fuel injection system.

He started the engine by removing the fuse for the fuel injection system, turning the ignition for a little, then replaces the fuse and starts the engine.

He told me to do this if I have any more problems, I have and it has worked each time.

Has anyone else heard of this problem, or fix?

DO you know if removing the fuse does any damage to the engine at all?

Thanks in advance guys
