citroen c5 2.2 2007 non starting manual transmition

Post by colin machin » 08 Nov 2015, 17:10

A month ago the car just stopped running when i was doing 60mph and wouldn't start again. I left it alone a while and it restarted, and for the last month its been running ok, but i came to it this morning and it would make no attempt to start. The battery is fully charged and cranks over ok. it's just as if it is not getting any fuel so any help would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Colin

isp thanks for the information i started another post earlier saying i was going to replace the crank shaft sensor as the engine had stopped altogether.and yes you where right it was the crank sensor .since i replaced it the car is spot on . thinking back it had a intermittent fault on the engine for some time but now every things ok .again thanks for your input .
