Hi, could someone please help.

My Scenic is very temperamental i.e. I'd left her on the drive all weekend......started her on the Sunday evening and she drove perfectly (went for a 40 mile drive). This morning she wouldn't start. It seems if I fill her up to over half a tank she's perfectly fine. Under half a tank and she doesn't want to know.

Please help......... I hate catching buses!!!!!!! :)

Could also be a blocked fuel tank breather pipe or a fuel cap which is creating a vacuum.

What I would suggest is that once you fill the tank, at the end of every journey 'vent' the fuel cap - this will remove any chance of a vacuum building-up, and just use the car as normal (carry a full fuel can in the boot - just in case), all going well, then you shouldn't have any more problems, and this will indicate where you need to problem-solve.

Hope that helps,

Paul:)
