Help... It Wont Start.

OK Chaps see if you can get your heads round this one. Got the GT4 all ready to fire up this evening...... Problem is, it wont..... Rats.

Symptoms are:- Engine turns over for a second or two, catches, then dies. Seemed like it could be fuel related, So i bypassed the fuel pump relay. Lots of fuel circulating. This is good. But still refuses to run. Did a cursory check of all the connections and they all seem ok.

Did a diagnostic check, Nothing. So i`m wading through my Chilton looking for clues. Any ideas anyone??

By the way, the following may be of help. This has all been done since the car last ran.

1/ The fuel in the car is at least 2 1/2 - 3 months old.

2/ Aircon has been removed.

3/ The EGR valve and pipe has been removed - Blanking plates fitted.

4/ EGR vacuum module and VSV has been removed.

5/ The vacuum tank. T-VIS VSV and Turbo pressure VSV have been removed.

6/ Stainless manifold and downpipe fitted.

7/ Straight intake fitted. Wiring for AFM extended.

Hopefully it`s something glaringly obvious to someone. But i`m dammed if i can sus it at the moment.

Cheers all.

Dak.

Based upon your mods I'd guess an air leak somewhere in the intake system but sorry can't be certain. Get a damp rag and start feeling around the blanks with the engine running (watch your fingers) and you might feel it start to pull the rag is it is sucking from somewhere
