    Default Miss Fire has gone!

    I picked up the car this afternoon. 4 new injectors fitted and the problem has completley gone!

    The car for sure pulls a little better, but time will tell over the fuel consumption. All new metal fuel pipes were fitted as well as you can't re-use the old ones.

    Whilst it was in, I had an Insignia Exclusive 2.0 CDTi 160 Sports Tourer, 1000 miles in 3 days, I'll soon be writing a report on what I thought.

    After the gearbox was replaced I though all would be well, but what I thought was a dodgy DMF causing an irratic idle turned out to be two dodgy injectors!

    I'm not too worried though as I still have 28000 miles of warranty left in case it goes totally pear shaped! Just joking, it runs like a dream now.

    It may have to suffer a water leak at about 58000 miles and have the water pump replaced, oh and that means a new cam belt etc

    Very funny I still maintain that the 1.9 is a perfectly good engine. I suppose I should have expected 'something' to go wrong no matter what engine I have with the miles I cover.
