URGENT any ideas?

fitted my painted rocker covers last night and now the car wont run!

it fires up and then runs for like a second then dies

if you give it a bit it keeps runnijng but really roughly and sounds like its missfiring but as soon as you take your foot off the accelerator it dies again

i didnt unplug any of the leads or anything so theyre not mixed up or anything

anyone got any ideas?

i didnt replace the intake manifold gasket but to me this doesnt sound like its anything to do with a leak or anything, seems electrical, but hey im no expert

Re: URGENT any ideas?

ummmm go back to the 6cyl forum dellboy!!

hehe we don't have a map sensor

Check for plugs left hanging in the breeze. Unplugged MAF or TPS can cause this. I was having a little play round unplugging bits and peices to see what would happen. If you wind a plug find the other side to it. They make em so that every thing is a differnt shape and can only go one place.

Air charge temp sensor?? I think theyre on the intake tube on the AU's. Had a 6 cyl that ran poorly because it wasn't plugged in?

Vac line to the Reg? Not sure if that would cause probs tho

Re: URGENT any ideas?

ok so going by the symptoms it sounds like an electrical issue right?

something not plugged in (cant find anything)

could i have stuffed one of the leads?
if a lead was stuffed would it die as soon as it fires up?
