    Default Let's Play A (205) Game.

    '87 205 GTi,
    Engine cranks, won't fire.
    Disconnect AFM, engine starts but runs very rough.
    Reconnect AFM with engine running, engine smoothes out then dies after 30 seconds.
    Engine will then restart and rev with AFM connected but dies again after 30 seconds or so.
    *Car is stock, complete, and has been sitting for several years.
    I figured it out today, wanna see how long it takes the forum.

    Sounds like a click bait heading lol.

    I have one somewhere off the original engine if you need another.

    Did you have a wasp nest living in your AFM

    I re-tracked and tested the AFM, didn't help.
    No wasps, but both front brakes were full of spitfires...

    Well considering I've already won, that's probably fair enough...
