peugeot 205 will it start??? - dirtywomble
I have a pug 205 1.1 (92). It will start first thing in the morning and be absolutley fine. The problem occurs when you turn the engine off and then come back to the car after a short while. The engine turns over ok but wont start. Have changed the distributor and cap. No change. Fuel is getting to the carb. On taking off the lead to the coil and placing a screwdriver over the coil and then turn the engine there is no spark, yet when I go back to the car later and turn the key she fires up straight away. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this??? I sit a known fault on these cars??? Help

the coil may breakdown or have a crack that only shows up with a bit of heat so when started first thing its still cold, try a new coil from the breaker.

Another coil from a breaker may be just as bad;spend another few pounds and get a new one.

many thanks for your expertise. Got a coil from the breakers, easy to fit and it started first time. If it happens again I will get a new one.
