  • Hi, fuel should ( I think ) be OK as I was using it regularly and mostly it was the shell stuff.
    would a fuel regulator problem cause this.

    I have been getting an intermediate starting problem which I thought was down to the fuel relay (will not start until relay pack disconnected then reconnected) but I swapped the relay pack for a used one but the issue continued to occur once a month or something like that.

    So I'm just wondering has some old wiring causing this?
    I don't have access to a pscan scanner.

    I've got to a stage where I might just SORN it until the weather is good. save me some money then work on it in the spring.

    Cheers.
    Dan.

    Hi all I have been having an issue with the running of my MGF for the last couple of weeks and I haven't managed to get to the bottom of it.
    The car starts and idles OK, but as soon as I give it even a little throttle it coughs, splutters then back fires if I hold it down. and makes it un-drivable,
    but then in idle it sound very sweet.

    I have changes a few things some for new of Ebay some I had spares lying around.
    New HT leads.
    New dizzy cap and Rotor
    new crank sensor, great pain to replace.
    replaces the coil with an old one I had lying around.
    pulled all the plugs they were all sooty as you'd expect from something miss firing, I cleaned them and put the same ones back.
    replaced the throttle sensor with a spare I had lying around.
    Checked the Cam belt timing, broke the cam belt cover in the process, every thing seems to line up although I do need a new cam belt as this one appears to be cracking.
    pulled the air filter of the throttle body squirted carb cleaner into it, still no good.
    Don't think its a blocked breather tube as I pulled one with no difference.

    Its leaving me scratching my head wondering what the hell is going on with it.

    Anyone experience anything like this before? Could it be a wiring issue? Fuel Issue?

    Cheers.
    Dan
