I'll re-iterate, if anybody wants to swap for a working, decent BX then let me know.
When i bought the car it had been maintained for the previous year by my local specialist. He knows BX's like the back of his hand and has been involved with Cits for years. He could never get it to run right either.
Just a thought here, but I have a mate who was an engineer by profession but such a Citroen fanatic that he eventually went into business with another wealthy guy also a Citnut and they ran a business down south specialising in Cit repairs (which in a country where they're a rare commodity is no mean feat to be able to survive) but what I'm getting to is that this guy is insistant that normal plug leads as bought in the average general spares shop will operate inefficiently in a Citroen. He has a BX himself and it had normal silicone leads fitted when he bought it and one of the first things he did was replace them with the genuine ones and claimed it made a difference to the running. He reckons the Cit leads have inbuilt resistance or some bloody thing or other and cut one open one day to show me this coil wound down the insides of it.
Could it be a possibility with this car by any chance?
I know it may be simplifying things even suggesting it, but any port in a storm.
Any chance you can post all the symptoms so we might pool our collective knowledge and see what we can come up with?
By the time you're old enough to know it all, you can't remember why you were learning.
