Hey, having some problem with my engine after having some crappy "dirty fuel"

keeps cutting out randomly, sometimes does it sometimes doesnt!,


To start it have to put the throttle all way down and let it rev so it keeps running!!:confused:

Think the chokes sticking as it sometimes throws black smoke out but i havent had chance to have a look at it

maybe a sparkplug?

Anyone know/had this..?

There is obviously crappy fuel still in the system, like demon said it would be worth changing the fuel filter as this could be clogged up causing fuel starvation (happened to mine) or buy some redex fuel system/injector cleaner and flush it out.

i had a simelar prob with an escort, put a petrol diesel mix in and it missed smoked and wouldnt idle, so i filled it up with petrol and a forte fuel cleaner and drove around till on empty and filled it up again with anthor cleaner and it was ok then. i have loads of this forte if you want one.

Corsa fuel filter doesnt look like that and isnt in the engine bay. Fuel filter is located along the offside inner sill near the fuel tank
