Chimaera Starting Probs

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

we've got a 4.0 Chimeara, which has proved very reliable over the 3 years we had it. That's why I'm stuck now. The car is in the garage, on trickle charge, but refuses to start. Tried WD40, but no luck. Starter turns over and there's a spark from the plugs, but it doesn't catch. What else could I try? Has anyone got an idea what could be wrong? I really don't want to have to load the poor thing onto a truck and cart it to a mechanic - it doesn't deserve this! Someone, please help.

thanks a lot.

I've heard of this on one or two TVRs. Some have recommended cleaning the stepper motor. Mine had had an incorrect starter motor fitted by the previos owner, which had placed so much extra load on the battery that the cells had buckled. cue new starter and new battery.
