turns over but no start.

Postby jagrob » Tue May 11, 2021 2:29 am

hi all, have a problem with my 1995 xjr6 s/charged. for the last few weeks it has been hard to start (hot or cold) but when it did it ran fine. now she wont start at all and can smell petrol after a few goes. have had new coil packs fitted and plugs. on checking the plugs on the weekend they were black and sooty. any ideas please what to check next. thanks.

Did the poor/non starting begin after fitting the new coils & gearbox lugs, or has it run fine for a while with the new parts fitted?

Plug in OBD, see whats going on. Might be CTS, might be o2 sensor, you should know more looking at the live data.
