Re: Clio rough start from cold
Thinking about having a go at priming the fuel system at the weekend
- if the bulb doesn't
go hard (*cough*
) as it should what does it signify? ...
apart from probable megabucks.
The fuel line between the fuel filter and the tank will have a non-return valve to prevent the fuel from running back into the tank when the engine is not in use. If this is faulty then the fuel pump will have a struggle to suck fuel each time it is started.
If the primer fails to firm up it will either be due to an air-leak, fauty non-return valve or the rpimer bulb itself may be porous.
