    Default Why why why y30dt.....

    Chaps, please help....
    Went out to start car this morning to commence normal daily drudge at some ungodly hour for a sunday and car refuses to start. Now that my mood has improved and am able to communicate with whole words.....

    Parked up last night with the usual issues that have plagued the car for the last 6 months or so, this morning turns over no issues, tries to fire but will not run, but now has spanner light on (new and exciting for today).

    Any thoughts on where to start tomorrow on my first day off in four weeks, my thoughts are currently local BP, unleaded and zippo.......

    When that happened to me, i got a mobile auto electrician to come and read the codes. he charged me £30 and advised me on what was needed to cure the problem. Always worth trying the pedal test to get the codes up on here. Someone might point you in the right direction before tomorrow.

    Did think it mate. but would have to completely solid for it to not start.

    To the op try filling the fuel filter threw the screw hole and see if that gives any joy in getting it started.

    Extremely unlikely as the engine will run with a blocked SCV on idle

    More likely the fuel pump itself has failed
    As above, codes need to be read
    On the plus side, at least the warning light is coming on, all too often with this engine you get nothing!

    Thanks for that guys, will get codes read tomorrow. As for the SCV's, thanks but changed 6 months ago. Faults before this morning....
    Misfiring, vibrating at all engine speeds so yeah, a few faults..
    Will also try filling the fuel filter via the screw hole, did change the filter about 2k ago, but will try anything at present.....

    Ahhhhh, defo chance fuel filter. Those faults sound like when mine got blocked whilst on holiday. Shouldn't need to fill the filter. Just Turn ignition on and off a few times, should self bleed.

    I thought SCV's were only active in 5th & 6th gears?
