me turbo doesn't start anymore!!!!!
Got the exhaust done today. Car started on the battery - just!!! It wasn't charging. Took it a run, no power!!! Could drive like a grandad fine, but when you tried to accelerate a slight bit harder it spluttered like hell. Then when we got back - battery dead.
Later remembered I didn't put an earth strap on the alternator - tried a bit of wire (sparked quite a lot - hmmm, dodgy wires?) No real difference.
Bump started it, took it home (dash dissappeared on the way). Double checked the alternator wires with my other astra (as I'm using the astra alternator), they were fine. Hooked it up to my dad's car with jump leads, bitch wont even fire now.
There appears to be a spark. Never hear the fuel pump though, but when you cross the terminals at the relay you here it. Fuel lines are on the right way - one from filter goes to right hand side of fuel rail (looking at engine from front).
I can't think what's wrong. It drove home, so why doesn't it fire when connected to another car. and the alternator cicuit consists of 3 connections
