    however it has had an intermittent but persistent starting problem. Put key in ignition and turn. Car either starts immediately or does not( I notice it doesn't like downhill slopes).Engine turns over but needs repeated attempts then eventually fires and runs as normal. During turn over there is no misfiring or spluttering. I can drive it all day stopping and starting and it works! I have had the car since April and to be honest it's.been a on going nightmare. I bought 'as is' from the dealer so I can't take it back. 😭 any insights? Thanks for listening

    Hi Twinturbo, I saw an old post from 2013 where you were helpful about Stype starting issues. I reply to thread to see if the person who had issues had resolved it. One of the other members suggested to message you direct. So here goes. I have a 2005 automatic s type V6. Let me give you some history.Bought off a dealer end of April and had to return within 24 hours because of a gas smell. They fixed that. Then there was a oil leak which the dealer fixed. Then 1 month after that dead battery issue which the auto electrical found 2 faulty modules replaced that. Worked for a good solid 3 weeks then one day all lights came on and interior but wouldn't turn(no click nothing)They put in a new battery but 3 days later it was dead as a door nail. They tested and said alternator. They replaced alternator it worked for the weekend and then again dead as a door nail. They tested the new alternator which found it was faulty. They put a new one in working good( no dead battery!!) .

    Hi Twin--Turbo

    Looking at the drivers side headlight, looks to be in working order, apart from age related damage, i.e. Going a bit grotty, I can get it taken off this week for you, only asking for a small amount due to damage and sencond hand nature so say £30?

    Regards
