    Question Spanner light. Help please.

    Over the last few days my spanner light has been coming on after my drive on the motorway home from work when I stop the car. Stopped of at a shop today and when going to move of the light came on and cut out. Done this 3 times and manages to get home. I have the 2.2 direct so prob pump or regulator or both. Does anyone know what symptoms these are for. I have not had the fault read yet as I am a bit poor till payday. Lol. I'm hoping its the regulator. If its both how hard are they to change yourself. You can get both for approx 400. My dad can fit them but he's an old school car mechanic. Doesn't like turbos, computers etc lol. Cheers.

    hi

    normaly the 2.2 direct would cut out if it was one of the fuel related items, i have same engine as you, and have recently experienced problems with cutting out and fault codes related to fuel related items.

    presure regs are £89 on ebay, id not be buying a used hpfp though it is not worth it for it to possibly fail on you in the future.

    if its the hpfp the car would be undrivable full stop (As it would be broke possibly due to a rubber seal inside splitting)

    looks like its your regulator or fuel pressure sensor mate.

    i have bought a new reg, but have not fitted it yet, as once again my car is now behaving its self, you can fit any of the 3 possible faulty items your self mate.

    about 3 weeks ago my car cut out once, then behaved itself for ages, then last week continuoulsy cut out and refused to start straight away, it needs a minute or under with engine off before it restarts.
