Starting Problems

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I have had this problem before with my Ascona in the 80s when i was a lot younger and i cant believe my Manta now has the same problem. I didn't care when it was the Ascona but now with the Manta it is annoying.

The car starts no problem even if i leave it in the garage for a month but if i drive it 10/15 miles and it warms up it struggles to turn over as if it has a flat battery. It has always started in this situation but sounds terrible and my worry. is one day i will be stranded. Any help before i throw lots of money at it on the wrong parts.

cheers

Raymond

I agree with pat, i had the same fault about a month ago with my manta. fitted a new earth strap as well as the orginal and the engine starts and turns over perfictly cold or hot now.

cheers guys,

i will try this when i can get into my garage, spent the last 2 days fitting an air suspension kit to my sons golf R32 so an extra earth will be an easy fix i hope.

Thanks again,

Raymond..

When it does it again try disconnecting the green connector from the coil. If it turns over fast now then the ignition is too far advanced .this can sometimes only show up on a hot engine !
