yeh  :grin: hopefully after Monday I will know every little issue there is with it, fix the major ones (if I'm lucky just crank sensor), and work through the little ones over time, whilst upgrading parts, will be a long process but in the short time I have had this car I have fallen in love with it so will have it for a long long time :)

Well heard back, no faults found sensor wise but they said the fuel hoses where wrong way around, I personally can't see how it would start and drive at all like this but my knowledge is low so they might be right, does it sound plausible? They have taken it for a run and said it drove fine without issues. They are keeping it over night to see how it is on first start tomorrow and will give it another run, all going well though should have it back by lunch tomorrow all working with such a simple fix.

Yeh seems odd, hopefully they will take it for a longer run tomorrow and not have any issues. Diagnosis was £40 Inc swapping the hoses so not a huge outlay, they haven't mentioned any other issues so will check they think the engine rattle sounds OK too. Overall will be pleased it it was that simple, but not holding my breath, think they might of just had one of its lucky days as it drove there fine too

Hmm could be. My crank sensor issue never chuxked a xode though as it was intermittent. Theyll have a shoxk if it does play up

Yeh, it's got half a tank of diesel in it so might get them to go for a longer run
