To cut a a long story short I have been given for free a MkII astra 1.8GTE.
I'm havin real trouble tryin to get the git to start. It already has free petrol and engine oil (15w50).
When tryin to start, it tries to turn over but fails to. When u put ur foot to the floor on accelerator and do the same there is a slightly better responce but the engine never reaches tickin over point infact it never reaches 900rpm and after bout 10 secs of nearly shakin the car apart it dies out. any ideas?
Still sounds like a fuel feed problem, but my car stood for two years not touched and it started first time with the help of a charged battery.
Maybe summit to do with the battery, is it fully charged.
