    Default Heart in mouth moment

    Driving home on my normal route today and got to the blind junction that I have to pull out of. It's onto a fairly quick road so it's a case of deciding to go and flooring it.

    Normally, bit of wheelspin, and away. Today, absolutely nothing, just gentle accelleration, jabbed the throttle again, nothing, looked in rear view mirror to see if anyone was about to wipe me out
    Luckily the road was clear.
    Looked at the dash and there's the car symbol with a spanner through it. So I limped off to VX who promptly plugged in the computer and diagnosed I need a new swirl valve, whatever they do. They have none in stock so reset everything and I'll have to take it back another day

    It could've been so much worse, I could have needed a whole new back end on the car had I been unlucky. Suppose someone was on my side today!!!

    Ive heard others have had this problem. Hope its not a known fault that should really be recalled but would cost too much.
