    Default My car is now running good!



    Cant beleive the problems started by a glow plug!

    As you all know my head has had some work done to it due to the snapping of plugs.

    I had a full head change and starter and turbo.

    Starter _ Because it burnt out due to non starting

    Turbo _ Because i thought the old one had blown but it never

    Head _ Wel the old one was F U B A R because i had a pice of old glow plug stuck in there and it bent valves and snapped a part under the cam?
    thus running V v bad.

    New parts fitted £600 pluss spent and it started and run sound.
    Done 3.6 mile and it stopped dead on the drive.

    Charged the battery 2 times due to non starting.
    Thought thats it had enough its going on Flea Bay

    On as a non starter but i had got a second opinion from another fitter.
    Glad i did because when inspecting the engine i pulled the leak off pipes out my way to see why i had oil under them. It fell off with ease, went on to check the rest and there where 4 compleatly split 100% the way through. £1.00 on parts £20 on fitting and that was it pumped the fuel back in and it stated no problem and starts every time now.

    Phew nearly sold the lot!
