Renault 5 GT Fuel issue
« on: 23:56, Mon 27 May 2013 »

I have recently bought a 1988 Renault 5 GT, I knew the car had some heating problems and I have changed the head and fitted a new head gasket and water pump and all is ok.

The problem i have now is with fuel, sometimes fuel will pump nicely into the carb by itself but then it will just stop.  The car did sit for 8 years before I bought it so I was thinking of replacing the fuel pump and fuel filter.

Any other ideas would be welcome :)

Cheers Alan

It might be a failing fuel pump, it could also be dodgy wiring.

Try attaching 12v direct to the fuel pump, if it spins fine without pausing or hesitation maybe there is a dodgy wire somewhere.
