More Ti starting woes

Have a good look at the ECU temp sensor - if has is no connection to it then your engine thinks it is cold all the time and its on "full choke" which will flood the engine - you can check for fuel by smelling at the exhaust.

Hadn’t touched the car for a week, not since I drained the tank then refilled with good fuel (and it still didn’t start.)

Today it started on first attempt (which is great) but I don’t know what changed (which is not so good.) I’ll just keep trying it the next few days and see If it continues to start. Then hopefully I’ll get another MOT booked.

Something stopping the fuel getting to the engine ? try blowing through your pipes.
