Tell me, does the engine warning light come on when you turn the ignition key to the on position?

Can you hear the fuel pump kick in when you turn the key to the on position?

Before you jump to any conclusions:-

if you put a long screw driver to your ear on an injector can you hear it clicking?

I was going to say do the rotor arm as well!

That and the dizzy posts are always a favourite! They both burn a bit over time..........
