Scooby - Hudson - Geezer, All the suggestions you say have been investigated. I think (gut feeling) it is a fuel supply issue. But have also been advised it could be electrical ??? Thanks to all of you for your assistance.

Yep - it's still there :lol:

First thing I would check (if is a mechanical fuel pump) is that the fuel filter isn't clogged.

Thanks phillyn. Fuel tank cap is very interesting... I was discussing this yesterday. Some cap have an air hole .. mine does not and when I open it there is an almighty blast.. suction .. type sound. ????

If your fuel cap does not breathe properly, it will create a partial vacuum within the tank itself which results in it trying to suck fuel back from the engine. If you are hearing a whooshing sound when you remove the cap after running the vehicle for a while then something is wrong. Try running without a fuel cap for a couple of days and if the car runs fine then the problem is the cap.

Don't try this in the UK. :wink:

1. It will rain, for sure.
2. The police will probably nick you.
3. Someone will pee in the tank.
4. Some yobbo will stick a rag in the hole and light it.
5. A passing traveller will use a syphon.
