so it starts or it doesn't, not being funny but I have no idea wtf is wrong as in your first post I didn't get the feeling it was starting at all, now it does but then stops after a few days ?

Re: I'm total stumped help is what I need ??

Fully understand mate when I have changed some parts it's fired up but then it dosent run at all right and it might stall and not restart until I connect the to black pins together get a fault code buy and fit a new part and klick of the key she fires up(don't do many miles in it )so take for quick drive it is running so in back of mined I think it will get better as the brain gets used t I new part .but it always either stalls or I'll turn the car off and it won't restart until I waste more if my life, pulling my hair out and wasting money or trying something new ,even now I'm standing next to it ,bonnet up as its at my mums (as would not restart )after getting it going by taking off new tps trying old ,then refitting new the next day and bang she fired up ,tick over bit hi but have been playing with tick over screw so wasn't to worried ,drove round here turned off ,not to restart ,showing no fault codes ????????

was the maf new or 2nd hand

also do all the parts swapped match the originals, on a classic you can`t fit a purple labeled maf on car that had a green label.

check the plugs for fuel when it dies, also how long will it idle for if you dont touch the throttle ?

if u have an air lock you dont want to rev it, just leave it to idle with the header tank cap off, leave to idle till the fans have cycled on/off twice, replace cap and your sorted

turn ignition but dont start it, listen for fuel pump priming, does the amount of time it takes change ?
also how many seconds does it take it prime ?
