    Default I can smell trouble ahead

    I was sitting in my car with the aircon on just idling and all of a sudden it just cut out. Restarted it and was fine though maybe just with the heat and aircon running full blast was a bit too much for it. But then an hour later i was coasting up to a set of traffic lights and it died again. This time it wouldnt restart After a couple of minutes it ran again. I notice a slight uneven idling without the aircon on maybe this is a clue.

    Oh well off to the stealers monday.

    1.9 CDTi badge on the back should be a good clue

    JK mate, hope it's nothing too serious, right in the middle of the season and all those meets to go to.

    That sounds like your car has recovered from a serious error and been halted to prevent damage, do you wish to call an advisor.

    Very good Ed, more like its falling asleep when nice and warm

    Anyways took it for a blast to see Mark the Cabby and she's idling nicely now and running fine. I drained the fuel filter to make sure theres no water in there and topped the tank up with some good diesel.
