  1. Seat Ibiza 2008 repeated starting issues - linked to weather?

    Hi, My '08 reg Seat Ibiza regularly fails to start - the ignition cranks, but it fails to start running.

  14. Cold starting

    Recently my v5 170 (02MY, 103k miles) has refused to start from cold unless I give it some throttle. Performance seems the same as ever and overall MGP remains constant at 31-32 so I'm figuring its just a cold start fault rather than something more serious. I've sprayed the plugs/caps with WD40...

  18. Jump starting an Arosa (53 model)

    Hi All, My OH's Arosa, decided it didn't want to start this morning. Didn't even try, just a vague clicking sound! Assuming it is a flat battery, we got some jump leads and connected them up. Neither of us having done this before and doing it in poor light has meant we've given up for...

    drove fine and didnt have a problem until yesterday morning just wouldnt get going. i thought it might be the battery but jumping it didnt help. three new spark plugs did nothing either and they all fire so i'm assuming its not coil related? turnover sounds smooth so i assume (hope) its not the...
