the engine turns and i can smell petrol but its like it just wont ignite.think il try that mil code test thingy from the service connector, but the engine light on the dash doesnt come on,one thing i did notice was that it was taking longer and longer for the engine to ignite each time over the period iv had it, like its got a weak spark, will post more wen get more info !
