or the obvious thing could be fowled fuel. water can leak into their tanks . you fill up drive around the corner and she dies. it will need a full flush if thats the case and if u have your reciet get them assholes to pay for it

Cheers for the help guys. Will be taking the filter out tomorrow after checking for flow, soaking it in fuel before it goes back in though ;)

Thanks for the tip about injector cleaner.

Sounds like the injectors are ticking and good spark, plugs only replaced 2 years ago and has been rarely driven since as old man has a work ute but now needs the commie back for some reason.

If its not fuel, i will take plugs out and possibly replace them to test that. Got some spare leads here from when I had the VT engine done, also the same for plugs.

As for water in the fuel, haven't heard of it before and trust the servo I always go to, besides don't have a receipt...

Dont like the sounds of getting injectors cleaned, wouldn't really be worth it. Car is worth about $2k these days, cheaper to buy a new one, but lets hope it aint that.

if the filter is new theres no point taking it back out it wont block that fast even if its in backwards it will still go i just replaced someones filter been in for years was on backwards didnt effect the running of the engine at all.pull either the inlet or outlet line at the engine saves getting under the car at all.turn the key 5 or 6 times will fill the filter pretty quickly
