Grande 1,4 2008 ignition problems.

Hi

My Grande 1,4 2008 is not starting.

I have checked the fuel pump, the fuel cut off switch, fitted new battery, filled with fuel.

Still not firing up. The starer was sticking before this problem but would eventually start.

Could I still get a spark and would the engine still turn if the starter was faulty???

Or am I better trying to get a diagnostic test done??

Someone mentioned censors of the timing belt and cam shaft.

Any help much appreciated

Thanks Dee

Re: Grande 1,4 2008 ignition problems.

Hi Charlie

I am in the Glasgow area.

What are the symptoms if the earth cable is faulty because the engine seems to have plenty of power getting thru to it. All electrics are working fine.

The engine just sounds as if there is no fuel getting thru.

Re: Grande 1,4 2008 ignition problems.

The engine relies on sensors to get the timing of spark and fuel correct..
So a bad electrical supply to any can be a problem.

IDEA.. disconnect battery power for a couple of hours..then reconned..it may just reset something.

Does it chuff and phutt..or just turn over..??

Re: Grande 1,4 2008 ignition problems.

It is a rapid turn over of the engine Charlie.

As I said there is plenty of life in the engine just no ignition.

Ok. Just disconnect the battery..se if something reboots

Otherwise you may need to read codes..run diagnostics..

Let us know if anything changes.
