    Default oh dear, im an idot....

    Had a dumbass moment earlier today....

    Got my V6 vectra few weeks ago so spent this week tidying up my old car, a mark2 mondeo to sell on. had somebody come to view it today so before they got here i topped up the screen wash and coolant (coolant has a slow leak). They ended up buying the mondeo and it wasnt until i went to the shed afterwards that i realised the bottle of coolant was still unopened and i had infact topped the coolant up with 0.5litres of screen wash, D'OH!!!!!

    I did take it for a test drive with them and it seemed fine, done some research online and the screenwash shouldnt do any damage so all good.

    Just cant belive i did that....

    My first car was a 1.0 petrol Nissan Micra - it spent a good 6 months running around on diesel oil as I'd walked in to Halfords looking for some and found the bottle labeleed "suitable for most non-turbo diesel engines". I figured as mine wasn't a turbo diesel I was fine...
