well i've been driving it and topping it up everyday with around £10 of diesel. But today it wouldnt start at lunchtime after an hour of not being used and eventually the battery died. Someone gave me a jump start and BAM it started instantly. Same thing happened at 5pm too but I managed to get it going before battery died. I noticed when priming it by hand that after a few primes at the top of the clear pipe there was a wee gap like air or something but no air bubbles in mix.
need some advice here guys!
ok so to update, I put £30 of petrol in diesel tank, was told to fill tank with diesel. It seems to run ok but I'm having problems at times starting it. Usually when left for an hour or so. If engine running and I switch off and back on no probs but after a wait its a bit of a gamble whether it wants to start or not. I told garage who sold me car that when trying to start it I could see bubbles in clear tube attatched to primer so today they replaced that with one from another engine they had. Did that and while I was there they guy I bought car from reversed car out of garage but he had a bit of bother trying to start it so it looks like it didnt fix it. He says see how I get on tomorrow and let him know tomorrow. i tired car an hour ago and it started but then failed. So am worried about using it tomorrow.
Any ideas what the problem is? Could it be a fuel problem? Fuel running back into tank?
