My four has a odd little problem. It dies after about 2 miles, no power, but once I've stopped or if not in traffic, popped the clutch, I can start up again on the key or bump start if still moving.
It will do this at almost the same stop each day. Once started it will go on for another mile or so, and do the same thing again. It may do this 3 or 4 times then carry on as if nothing has happened. I have replaced the oil and fuel filters, and it appeared to be ok for a couple of weeks and then started playing up again. One morning the battery went flat and out came the AA man. We started the old girl up without any problem, but we noticed that the fuel filter primer plunger would suck down hard. This could be a blockage but the fuel blows through ok. It ran on and off for 3 hours that morning without a cough. Next morning died at the SAME place.
If I pump the primer 10 times or more it will run as if nothing has ever been wrong. If it hadn't had a new clutch fitted just after the filters were changed, it would be in the great off road track in the sky. Any ideas or thoughts?
