Car troubles

Postby Empire Green » Sun 12.07.2020, 11:24

My beloved Elan failed yesterday for the very first time :shock:
Just serviced the car with new spark plugs, new ignition cables and installed the Everest chip (thank you Alan for the stunning results)

Was driving a couple of hundred kilometers after the service and while cruising the engine started hesitating.
Felt like a failing cylinder... few kilometers later the engine totally failed :banghead:
However, I could simply start again, drive a few minutes and had the same problem.
Thank God I got home.

This morning I tried to start.
The engine ignites and instantly stops again.
When I try to restart, the starter motor goes off, but nothing more...

Any ideas ?

Thank you all !
