Hello. I have a 1992 v6 petrol jakaroo sx that wont start. when the problem first occured a couple of weeks ago i took it to my local mechanic who told me it was the fuel pump. after having the pump replaced it ran fine for two days and now the problem is back. once the engine gets warm and is turned off it wont start again. sometimes after it has cooled down it will start. can any one help.

Hi
It could be the module in the distributer causing the problem

rolandh if it's any help mate we had the same thing in the v6 VN it we replaced the pump but no luck still had the problem when the engine got hot, it ended up being the fuel filter was blocked up , the machanic said same thing about if the filter is full ofbleepit makes the pump work harder and it gets hot then the pump it self stops pumping ,i think that,s right ,any way it was the filter cheer,s GREENDOG

Don't know if its the same thing, but my V8 VL commodore used to do the same thing. Used to hit the solenoid with a hammer, a couple of small knocks, and worked a treat until next time.

thanks everyone for the help. i purchased a second hand coil pack to day and that still didnt help. also when i pulled the plugs they all had oil around the insullators and up into the plug leads. is this normal?

i will have to try the fuel filter tomorrow and look for the sensor. can any one tell me where it is on the engine block?

thanks.
