Also check the inertia switch.This sounds like fun. The fuel pump is in the near side of the petrol tank. When you turn the ignition you should hear it prime. If you are sat in the cabin the sound comes from behind the passenger headrest. Where to start. ???? Check fuses. wiring connections?? take off the circular panel in the engine compartment. Fuel pump is under there.
Some mgfs have been left and start. Once up and running I would change the belts as a matter of course.
Also look up starting problems with other forums. Rover 25 etc. There are some great posts with people who know a lot.Ok thanks so much. Already checked the inertia switch. Also could smell fuel i dont know if that was from the leftover fuel in the fuel lines when i was pumping the accelerator or what. If that is the case its a spark problem.
Its a K series. Someone will have had the problem before. Have a look at the plugs. Or one at least. see what the end looks like. If by chance you injected too much fuel it will have time to evaporate. The plugs are deep - be careful not to cross thread them when putting back in.Yeah i have been looking at the posts quite a bit but it didnt help much. No one had the same problem
