    yes i have took the top off the air filter put petrol in and its starts 80 percent better and left it running for 15 minutes and you can hardley hear the engine running at first you have to let it tick over for a minute or it will cut out if you tyr to throttle it but after that its ok but im still going to try and sell it

By the sounds of it your problem is that either the battery wants charging or replacing
Points set to bigagap and distributor and cap may not be seating correctly also check on the leads and Plugs for the correct gap
Have you played with the timing if not ok
The 190 is a lovley car look after it....

    Well if you put petrol in the carby and it starts then undo the feed pipe to carby and turn it over ,,petrol should come out if it dose the carby wants to come off and stripped down

    If no petrol comes out when you turn it on then the fuel pump in the tank is not working or the fuel inline filter is blocked up ,so needs to be replaced ,,also check the fuse to the pump in the fuse box and see if its blown,and last make sure you have petrol in tank...

  • Ronaldbrains Oct 07, 2009

    SO it sounds like the pump could be faulty but keep it running and if ok and it keeps going then you have done well and i will send you the 300 quid

    Ha H a

    Have a goodday

    If still ok Ask 6000 quid

Just changed battery and now truck cranks but won't start

Most common on these is the fuel pump; to confirm spray a small dose of starting fluid into the air intake (one to two second) then try to start it.

If it fires and then dies it is the fuel problem. Most common is the fuel pump, but it could be a lot of other like fuel pump relay, fuel filter, fuel pump fuse etc.

If it doesn't fire it is most likely a spark problem.

Firing order video on spark plugs

Has the battery light on the dashboard turned on? This would indicate a bad alternator not charging the battery. But if the battery light is not on then alternator is ok.
I think it's just simply a dyeing battery. Batteries usually last about 4 years, then they start to die.

Hi justin, sounds like you have a headgasket problem are you going through any water? If not you may have a leaking fuel injector or faullty fuel pressure regulator. you either have fuel or water leaking into a cylinder causing it to miss fire on first start up.
