cadoc is an unknown quantity at this point
My car just died this morning as if I'd run out of petrol. The engine turns over nicely but it's not starting. The AA came out and towed me home - the mech. said that it was my fuel pump.

I've removed the fuel pump and checked it and it's working fine. I've replaced it into the tank, took the outgoing fuel line off and made sure that the petrol was pumping but the car still won't start. Has anyone experienced this problem ? I'm trying to trace the fuel line to the engine but to be honest I don't recognise a lot under the bonnet - it's not like my old Cortina !! Can anyone point me in the right direction, i.e. where specifically can I disconnect the fuel line under the bonnet to check if I've got a supply ?
I'm wondering now that it may not be a fuel problem but something else.

Check your fuel filter, if thats new ,then I would say pull a plug and check if its wet and has a spark if not get back with what youve found.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
