You checked under the bonnet and under the car for any leaks????
are you getting a smell of petrol from the car ??
iv had a look round yeah and can't see any leaks of smell from the car,besides a slight very faint eggy smell from the exhaust, no fault lights are showing. its just supping a rediculous amount of fuel.
possible guage fault?
yeah it seems to get to operating temperature fine, iv not looked in detail no for leaks, just for patches on the floor etc, I'm not to savvy with cars. iv had the spark plugs out and everything seemed fine there. and the car was in the garage for a new cat put on last week so I assume they would of picked up on a fuel leak? possibly not.Does it get up to normal operating temperature?.
The old fashioned thing to do is pull the spark plugs and have a look. If they are sooty it is running too rich.
Did you check for fuel leaks with the engine running?. The pump is in the fuel tank, so you need to check from tank to manifold.
hiWhy did it have a new cat fitted?? ... ...let me take a guess ....because it’s gone into thermal melt down due in an excessively over fueling engine or MOT fail for being massively over rich ?
hi,sorry to be a numpty but how exactly do I bleed the air from the engine? where is the bleed cap located, I'll try this and see if it sorts the issue thanksi have said this before and it does seem a little crazy but make sure there is no air trapped in the system, get hot squeeze pipes and use the bleed cap.
daughters car was the same and can only pressume air gets trapped under the sensor? who knows but a good air bleed got it running spot on within a day.(no more excess smoke/steam on a warmish day)
also check its not running on 3 cylinders at certain revs.
