I have a 1999 Jimny that has an oil leak at the back (top) of the motor. After degreasing and washing the motor down to identify where the leak is I am now having starting problems.
I removed the crank angle sensor and cleaned and dried it, and it started first go. Then this morning it started first go and ran perfectly to get it out of the garage but now it will not start at all.
The CAS was replaced about 6 months ago and hasn't missed a beat since. The only reason it was replaced was that every now and again power would die for a second or two and come back on.
I look forward to your thoughts/comments
Thanks for your sensible response. It has a G series motor, I did use a pressure washer at the carwash. I have removed coil packs, all plugs and used WD40 and carby cleaner to remove as much residue of water that I can see & feel.
I started the car this morning. It ran for about thirty seconds or so and then completely died. Would not re-start in the next 15 minutes (and I had to get to work).
Any further thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
No water in ECU, fuses are good. Have removed the coil packs and can't see any cracks or water. I think they are making good contact as it starts really well, runs smoothly. Problem is it's only for about 40 seconds and then it dies as if I've turned the key off.
