The pain just keeps on coming!!!


Recommended Posts

And once agin the car is back in the garage again after failing its MOT on emissions. The exhaust gasket broke the day after it went through, new exhaust needed.....and once agin the idle control valve although now replaced still not solved. Its been in for diagnostics only to find out that all the wiring has corroded, to the throttle body, to the multipoint to the idle control valve and battery........except the diagnostics haven't been done obviously!!!


I've owned the car 3 months and excluding alloys i've thrown £1000 at her including the alloys nearer £1600. The annoying thing is she has really low mileage 50,000 and bodywork in good nick and thats what drew me to the car, its just everything else thats wrong and now its just a steady circle of depression....... the cat's also on its way out and today the clutch feels sloppy and the syncromesh feels clunky.....oooh!! the PAIN :vangry:

:innocent: It has nothing to do with it passing it's mot first time with 2 advisorys, 1 on the front discs 1 on the rear... :cheers:

My cabby passed with no advisories :P My opel did on the last one too, but before that it needed the tin worm seeing to
