    It’s been a long time since I have updated the thread. The Corrado has gone in for its MOT today. I has decided that it likes a lot a cranking before it wants to start. I have recently fitted a replacement in tank fuel pump and relay. Any ideas on what to look for next?
    Thanks.

    You sure the builtin "non-return" valve works - check my answer in this thread (with pic):

    The symptoms sound similar cold start is really bad. Is there a way to check the fitted non-return valve is working?

    The Corrado flew though it’s MOT again. No advisories.

    Not sure what your fault may be but maybe check fuel filter and fuel pressure at injector rail ?
    Spotted your car the other day in Lovedean btw, looking very good

    Thanks for the compliment.
    A new fuel filter was fitted a couple of weeks ago. Checking the fuel pressure will have to be the next step. Everything runs as it should once fuel is in the system. I have ordered a NRV to see if that helps.

    Not sure m8, I would just buy a cheap non return from ebay (can't remember size, but I think it's 8mm) and test it.....I tried all kind of stuff before I heard about this issue, and it have been working ever since (VW did actually have an official replacement as it was a common problem), but the part is discontinued.....

    A new fuel pump has worked the trick and the Corrado is 100%. I only covered 58 miles since the MOT. Pleased to say it passed with no advisories again. Must attempt to do more miles this year.

    Good to hear you've sorted it
    Only 58 miles that's got to be a record

    I think the least miles I've done in mine between MOT was roughly 900 miles.

    Take her out on the motorway and get rid of those cobwebs, that reminds me I saw a massive garden spider this morning, it was massive not far off the size of your hand, I almost c****ed myself
    So that got booted out the front door

    Si
    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.

    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it, been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver. Plus I'm on The SEAT Forum.

    Link to 16v torque settings & ECU pin locations.
