I went out to my car this morning and she started up fine but i switched the ignotion off within 1 minute went back in the house and came out to start the car up again and the engine wouldnt fire up. I know the battery has power because the electrics in the car work and the lights etc, when i turn the key you hear the car trying to start going fast so i guess this tells me the batterys still got plenty of power.
I have taken off the TDC sensor, cleaned the metal tip and replaced it but the starting problem still persists.
I also tried putting my foot on the gas while turning the key, to help start the engine but still no luck.
Also when i put the key in and turn the electrics on you hear a weird sound and when i turn electric off and take my keys out the ingition, the petrol gauge needle stays in position instead of reasting at the bottom liek its meant to, you can see this in the youtube video i have attached.
I have uploaded a link to youtube that shows the dashboard while i turn the electrics on and then when i try to start the engine.
Is this more likely to be a fuel pump/sensor issue or a spark plug issue or maybe the engine is just flooded ?
have the same problem?
