Hi All,

My EB 5.0L is playing up. It cranks but doesn't start straight away, it may take few goes. When it does start it seems to run fine.

I have replaced fuel pump & filter, Dissy cap, Rotor & Plugs. Leads seem to be O.K .

Any suggestions?

:?

Or maybe quickly check the resistance of the leads with a multimeter before you replace a $100 set of leads.

might want to check the ISC too,

an easy way to see if there is an issue would be to hold the accelerator down a bit when you go to start is she fires straight away there may be an issue with it.

we had a eb 5 ltr come into the workshop with the same prob
we found if you taped on the dissy after you tried starting
the engine would start
we fitted a second hand dissy as the guy had no more to buy new parts
i surpose you could try tapping on the dissy after a no start situation and see if it works

XR8Man,

I'll give that a go.

I have noticed a pool of engine oil in a small well above the water pump housing, next to the dissy. Could this indicate that there may be a problem with the dissy?


Such as worn seal and too much play in the dissy shaft.
