Hope you are enjoying this lovely weekend.
I have few questions and I really hope that you will be able to answer them, or at least give me some hints and what to check.
Basically by car is struggling to start if I do not press gas pedal while turning the ignition key.
I have checked spark plugs and they seem to be absolutely fine. No signs of oil or petrol on them. Nice and dry.
The plug wires and coil pack have been changed by the previous owner. So I assume that it was done around 12-15 months ago.
Fuel injectors have been changed by myself around 4-5 months ago. I didn't bought them completely new but when I checked them in the garage I was told that the condition is perfect. I kind of don't believe that they could of gone that bad in such a short time...
Now, I know that I have alternator problems and I already bought a new one and planing to change next weekend but could that really cause miss-fire?
Another question is related to the alternator belt and all the pulley for it.
I have found an alternator belt kit which costs £86 and it contains the belt and 5 pulley.
Now, do you really have to change all the pulley? Is it worth it?
The belt itself is in excellent condition but idler pulley is quite poor...it also gives me that squealing noise when I start up the engine. So I assume it's something I have to change.
But is it really worth to change all of the pulleys? What's the point? Please see attachment for the kit and what pulleys are included in it.
Third question is regarding the clutch pedal.
When I put my feet on the pedal I can feel that it is vibrating. Sometimes it's just slight vibration, nothing serious, but then sometimes it goes mental.
Now, my clutch never slips it always work absolutely fine it has also been changed around 5 months ago. When I changed it I changed clutch disk and slave cylinder.
Is it normal for the pedal to vibrate? What could be the cause of it?
What kind of tests I could run at home by myself to identify the cause of all 3 of these problems?
Hope to hear from you guys. So far I have saved a fortune thanks to you guys.
