96 xr6 XH ute engine cuts out and is hard to start when driving
I have a 96 xr6 XH ute, it starts fine in the morning, I drive for about 10 minutes then the engine cuts out on me, then it is very hard to start, takes like 2 minutes of trying to start till it eventually does. Then it goes for like 30 seconds then cuts out, starts straight away and then drives for another 10 minutes or so. But it is not exactly every 10 minutes that it plays up.(just an example of when it does play up)
I have noticed that driving it at night it takes like twice as long to play up then during the day, it driving me nuts. The smartlock light on the dash is not flashing after you turn the ignition on so therefore there are no hard fault codes ? Is that correct ?
I was talking to a mate of mine who's uncle has a 96 model sedan, he had a similar problem, they got a RACQ guy out to have a look at it on the side of the road.
He said that there was a few drops of water that was causing condemsation and dripping on an electrical connection inside the cab on the passenger side.
Does anyone know what this problem is and how to locate it, or have any idea where elese I can start looking ?
