Starting issues
« on: 29 March 2020, 18:54 »
Hello,

just replaced the battery on my MK3.5 Cab, started first time, after 3 yrs off the road and it ran ok. I went out today, to move it out the garage, and it didn't start, added £5 of petrol in case it was low, still nothing....pulled the plugs and they were wet! so I dried them off, cleaned them up...still nothing, it almost does but never..catches....any ideas.


This has been off the road for 3 yrs, after a engine change, as detailed in my Signature, before its went away, it was MOT'd and used, it ran ok, ALBEIT a little rich at start up....which I think maybe the problem here....

battery is flat now, after trying for hrs to get it going, so is on charge!! any ideas?

It doesn't matter who you are, where you are, who you are with or even the conversation...all that matters...is the car you arrived in!
