My 06 mini cooper 1.6 will crank but wont turn over, this happened after a long journey to another city in Scotland. Made it there and back no problem next morning cranking but no start
Here is what i have done so far:
1: Removed and checked spark plugs are in good condition
2: Checked the plugs are getting spark, all in working order
3: Checked battery all is fine ( electrics fine everything on that side all good)
Furious now for the dirty work
4: sprayed some easy start car started for 2 minutes then died (good sign i thought ) at that point i knew i wasn't chasing electrics!
5: Listened out for the fuel pump heard the whirring just didnt sound right
6: Replaced the fuel pump today with my handy mechanic still no start at this point battery died
7: Tried jumping no luck!
Any ideas should i look into the ECU? maybe do a reset on it ?
