Hi, About 2-3 times a week, the ef has trouble starting.. Ie, turn the key, it cranks over, coughs and just about starts. Turn it again, and it starts beautifully.
As i said, it only happens about 2-3 times a week max. So its hard to pinpoint, as i never know when its going to happen.
its on petrol, not gas, *usually run optimax*, has just been serviced, (spark plugs, leads, etc) and battery is fine.
Well maybe you may want to look at cleaning your tank before getting the injectors done, as if it is crap that blocked them in the first place, chances are there will still be crap in the tank after injector cleaning, and it will be a problem then just waiting to happen again.
I have seen people post prices for new injectors which are comparable to getting them cleaned, so maybe new ones will cost the same as cleaning if you look into it.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
i have same problem sometimes and i had my injectors cleaned like taken apart new seals and propery clean for back then (2years ago) 25 each. But i never changed the fuel filter ....ever....i'll buy one tomorrow
ebxr8240 , yeah well it hasnt done it once since i made this post, Problem fixed? possibly... Going to **** up next time i go to start it next to a commodore full of ppl? Most Likely.
zbenga, I replaced the fuel filter hmm about 6 months ago, but i didnt have this problem then.. so it might be worth a try.
Im guessing its something commonish for e series.. as ive heard a fewppl talking about it.
