My Daughter has an 03 Sirion 1.3 she's had from new. There have been a couple of occasions when it refuses to start. The last time was when she needed to move up to get space for another car i.e. she just started the engine moved a couple of yards and switched off.
Next day her car refused to start so she had to get RAC who said the Auto Choke doesnt like being started and stopped straight away! He got her going with jump leads and constant turning of engine till it fired, then told her in future to run the engine longer.
I mention this mainly because my Sirion Rally 2 did a similar thing after a short run the other day and it took 3 attempts at turning the engine before it would start.
Can anyone shed any light on this? Cheers.
