Arrow 1.2 8v sx Doblo problem

Hi all,

I own a green 2001 1.2 8v Doblo.
In 2 years of use i had no problems at all with the car. Past few months, in a morning when i tryed to start the response[fuel pump won't make any sound]. Then i`ve pushed the car with a friend and it starts...few weeks run with no problem. After that, at cold start in mornings it starts very difficult, like it has no gas in the engine, filters and so on. When it finally starts, if i accelerate.. engine stops[i must let it start without accelerating] but after engine is heated it work very well, with no problem. Yesterday the fuel pump shuts up again, it says nothing ...i tried to unblock it with the air pump, but nothing[with this method i've done it before]. The "red cut-off gas" button it-s ok, i think the ECU is ok either[the engine works well after it starts and run for 10-12 seconds]. Any ideas? How should i wake up the fuel pump again?

Sorry 4 my bad english.

Search the Punto and Seicento forums as they also use the small FIRE engine and have more users and therefore may have also found the problem.

Usually I thought starting on these engines was down to the engine speed sensor or a faulty coil pack.
Reality: 55reg Idea Eleganza. The car in the facelift press release.
Dream: Panda Trekking.
