Hello,

Do you mean that ik takes long crank time till it starts?
That does happen more, mostly because the injector holes did become oval so the o-rings can't seal the fuel line anymore.
You can try with new o-rings but mostly you need to resleeve the injector holes...

I had a new battery and a new alternator and it's still doing it it comes up with a fault code saying the cam shafts sensor but I had that checked out and is not that nether the wires.now it's been 8 days since last time it did.what is very weard is that you try to starthe it for 10 time and it's just won't have and then you leave it for 5 minutes and it will start like it never had a problem.

Good point. Pull the intake pipe and see if the ASV is open.

Hi, this seems to be the typical Problem with the r5 engine. As written before the injector holes become oval because the injectors are only mounted on one side and jam. The gaskets can't seal and air gets into the fuel drain. New sealings worked at my car. Additionally I installed special Aluminium wedges to Keep the incjectors from getting jammed.
