Hi All,

Any help would be appreciated. I have just bought a 1999 Jimny with 117kkms. It had been garaged and not driven for 18 months. It starts easily and runs very smoothly but on the first drive it stopped after about 15 mins and would not restart. It turned over easy but no start or even a cough. I pushed and pulled leads, air filter etc and then after approx 40min it started and ran for another 10-15 mins. This time it stopped for about 10 mins then started again. ran for another 10 mins and by now I am almost home and stopped again. I rolled into the driveway and left it for 2 hours and then of course it started again easily.

I'm sure this has happened to someone else on the forum but after searching I got some ideas but nothing the same.

Thanks in advance. Michael

A little more fault finding. Ran for 16 mins this morning then stopped. After 30 mins it started again. ran for 10 mins and stopped. I could hear the fuel pump priming so I guess that was not the problem.

I sprayed some aerostart in the air filter box and it kicked straight away. Does that mean it is not an electric problem?

I then disconnected the plug in the photo below and the engine started. It is the plug with the red triangle on it. I don't know what this does. When I reconnected the engine would not start.

Any suggestions now?
