This is my project thred of the car me and dan bought to make some money off...long sotry short im trying to make it run so i can pull my DT off the road while i get it running right and untill diesel comes down to less than 15p a liter more expensive than petrol!

Started with this

Provenance run about 004-3

Bit of body damage and a cracked windscreen
Provenance run about 002-4

Engine is shagged as well

Provenance run about 007-2

Was ran dry too many times so its become my mnission to get it running right for...next to nothing really, i cant afford to spend a lot on it.

First things first - needed some petrol so i scrounged together a fiver in loose change and walked to the petrol station with a jerry can, put it in the car and found another fiver so i thought id get some more petrol but not put it in the tank just yet.

Next up was a new battery as this one was beyond dead - well i cant drive two cars at once so out the DT the battery came.

First thought - Injectors will be dead after being run dry so much so i had to get to them first

Engine went from this -

Provenance run about 001-7

To this -

Provenance run about 007-4

And injectors got cleaned by placing them in a cup half full of petrol and left to soak for ten mins, then they got a spray over with some break cleaner and rubbed well with a towel

Provenance run about 012

The dirt that came off the injectors and was left in the bottom of the cup

Provenance run about 014


Put it all back together minus the pain the arse air filter and tried starting it...no luck Sad

Petrol spilt all over my fingers when i pulled the injectors off though so its not the pump, could be the coil pack so when the money comes through from selling my spare turbo on ebay i'll try replacing that

Yeh, coil pack can get one off ebay for about 50 Sad More than i want to be spending but im just thinking of the long term gains, thing is mot is up in jan, depending what the difference in fuel prices is i might get another windscreen for this and put it through... knowing me the projects will end up swapping round and ill be using the DT as a run about and start doing silly things like put a VTS engine in it...would have to get it resprayed first though, id feel like a plank driving around a 120bhp 306 in baby blue

Tried getting it towed around to pull any fuel through the system and check for air in the system...till my dad reminded me that its a petrol so air in the fuel isnt a problem..woops well at least now i know its not that and now to start looking at electrics, will check for a spark tomorrow after work, if theres no spark - new plugs then new coil pack

Just an idea for now, if i can work out some storage space for it that is, was a nightmare tonight having 7 cars parked outside my house at once, 6 is alright but there just isnt enough room for me to have 2 cars at home!

No luck with the coil pack, theres no spark there, so what next? Spark plugs look quite healthy and even if they were shagged there would still be a bit of a spark, ECU time?

coil pack is switched on by the crank sensor which sends the signal to the relay behind the battery either of them i would say
