Hello, I recently bought a Pajero 2.0 GDI, for a while it stopped at idle and wouldn't start when it was hot, now it doesn't start at all, what could be the causes?

Should we assume ???

Should we assume that this problem is a continuation of the first, or should we treat it as a whole new problem?

I vote we treat it as a new problem and start our diagnosis from scratch - air - fuel -fire - those are the three things an engine needs to run, direct injection engines are a little more difficult to troubleshoot than port injected, but the basic principles still apply.\

Pull a sparkplug (the #1 is easiest to reach), connect it to the coil, lay it on a metal part of the cylinder head (some engines have plastic cam covers, the plug needs to be grounded), and watch while someone else cranks the engine - are you getting a spark?

Alternatively get a can of starter fluid and spray it into the intake whilst someone else cranks the engine, does it start & run as long as you're spraying fluid?

Do you know how to check for codes?

The cause can be various. See

The cause can be various.

See as the message above, the ignition check the fuel lines, pump filter and circuit and air intake.
