Question about Lotus Esprit V8
I ran into a friends house and left my 2003 Esprit running......10 minutes later i walk outside to leave, and, the car is off ( not running ). Now it will not start. It turns over, but, acts like its out of gas. Had it towed home and decided to try starting....it fired up for a second and shut off again. Fuel pump? Some sort of relay? .....not sure whee to look first.
First you got to figure out if it is fuel or electrical. spray a little starting fluid into the intake andtry to fire it up, if it starts for a few seconds it a fuel issue, if it does it may be a electrical problem. Fuel issues range in fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel rpessure regulator and so on, elctrical issus revolve around spark plugs and coils and such

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
