Hi Guys

When my 4.5l 81 928 has stood for a week or so it starts, runs rough, then cuts out after 30 seconds and wont re start. One breakdown chap advised new HT leads were needed, another that there was carbon in the distributor, what do you think?

 It starts/runs excellently if used every day and after a visit from the breakdown service.

If it the dizzy, it will probably be cracked, barely visible, I had an '83 Lancia HPE in the '80s that would not start until 10.00am if left outside, but would every time, any time if kept in the garage, took me a year to find problem and fit a new dizzy!
Sounds electrical, but would not rule out fuel pressure regulator. Lancia had a problem with that too! (they are a similar Bosch injection system)

I'm considering a 928. It's a beauty all but one thumbnail sized lifting of the paint on the underside rear edge of the offside rear wing, plus some slight scratches in same location on both sides. I am looking at repainting underside edges of both rear wing edges, and applying some form of protectant, such as a nice thick layer of waxoyl once the job is complete.
1. Is this repair a standard, feasible repainting task?
2. How much is it likely to cost (bearing in mind nothing short of a perfect paint finish will be acceptable)?
3. Are my thoughts on proctecting the new paint finish sensible/have you any other ideas?

Hi Ian,

Just to let you know that Adrian last logged in to the forum in 2010, so you might be better calling him for advice!

Hi technical folks at PCGB,
With any luck you can clear up some issues that I am having, both are electrical and maybe they are not difficult to resolve.
1.  Alarm and central locking:
- Although the central locking works with the key
- The remote central locking and alarm fob is intermittent at best.
Q. Does anyone know if this is a simple process of replacing the battery or more involved?
2. Flashing light in the central console: between the auto gear lever and glove box
- This small LED light is not referenced in the users manual
- This light flashes at all times when the engine is running
- It is possible that this light has always flashed (as I'm the cars new owner I might have spotted it before).
Q. Does anyone know what this light is for? and is the flashing normal?
Much appreciated
