Xf Wont Fire

i just put another bottom end in my xf, got everything on and went to start it and all it does is keep turning over, it wont fire. any ideas whats going on?

Re: Xf Wont Fire

last time i put a car together the battery just didnt have enough kick to fire it into life?

borrowed mums battery and it fired up first go.

give it a try if you can.

Also check the leads are all in the right order, check it twice

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: Xf Wont Fire

did you clamp the fuel lines when you had the engine out? If so, have you removed the clamps?

Re: Xf Wont Fire

Hi mate looks like your having big headaches...:<

Disconnect the fuel line from the fuel rail.Put it into a bottle .Turn the ignition on for 3 seconds and get someone to see if fuel is flowing out of the hose into the bottle.If not check that you have reconnected+++ ALL ++of the negative earth terminals back on to the cars battery.There is normally a negative earth for the fuel pump relay which goes right onto the battery it is a small earth connector so have a good look around to see if the wire has not gone under the battery or something.But most of all SAFETY FIRST ...put some glassess on when your near the fuel lines etc...I am almost 90 percent sure its a fuel problem regards Stav

Re: Xf Wont Fire

Oh ps if that doesnt work out go to your back boot and check the male /female plug connector to your fuel pump they get really dirty and sometimes have high resistance.Lastly if everyting is plugged in and fuel is still not coming out ....the damm fuel relay is probably had the gong.Gte a new one...If all this fails and fuel is good and spark is present well maybe your timing is out...kmart here in Sydney sell a product called "START YA BASTARD"WHEHEH

Re: Xf Wont Fire

got it going. got my old man to toe me down the road with my car in 4th and when we got some speed up i let the cutch out and she fired. then just set the timing and its all good. it has flat tops in it so the battery didnt have enough kick to get her going.
