    Default Back Fom Sunny Essex.....

    After 2 days spent in Southend On Sea, I'm back to nothing but rain and the pain that is trying to move house.
    That means......
    Sorting out the internet and phone, all the utility bills......it goes on!!

    On the plus side, the Signum averaged 54mpg on the way there and back. Before the swirl valves were fixed and EGR cleaned, it would do about 45 mpg at most on this run, so Im made up!

    Took the car to lookers in birkenhead this morning, and the aircon was duly fixed after a split pipe was found (thank god for a warranty!), I took the car home, nicely chilled out. There is however one slight problem now, the cooling fan is now running constantly, even though the car is not hot at all. What can this be?? Its now starting to be one thing after another!

    The engine is stone cold - it is only a 5 min drive to mine from the Vx garage. Its going back at 2 so then can sort it out. Was working fine before they got their paws on it!!!
