We recently had a vehicle towed in. The customer said it is hard to start can take 5 attempt, however he ignored the warning signs (hard to start).

Then the time he tried starting the car before it was towed in, the engine backfired, he said ‘Sounded like a bomb’ .

We got the vehicle an it had blown the inlet manifold apart, with bits of plastic everywhere. It also destroyed the starter motor as he was cranking the engine at the time of it backfiring.

Have a look at the condition of the spark plugs, the cause of being hard to start. It was obvious that the vehicle hadn’t been serviced properly.
