Just opt for no funeral as I have. 8k to dispose of a persons remains is madness imo.

I wish I knew what the point of funerals is. The person isn't there, s why "pay your respects to them" ? .They are dead. Its just a money spinning racket as far as I can see.

Terry Jones of Monty Pythion fame has died at the age of 77.

Looks to be a very nice example. Even has CID, which most don't. With the low miles I don't think the price is unreasonable, but its a dealer price and I would want some kind of warranty.

My plan is very simple. I have no money to leave anyone and left instructions for no funeral. Send my carcass to be burnt, and if anyone wants to do anything with the ashes, they are welcome to them. Don't see the need for all the fuss.

Maybe we are more realistic and less entitled than the French. We used to get the pension at 65 and probably be pushing up daisies 5 to 7 years later. Now, many people are living well into their 80,s so the country cant afford to pay out pensions to all at 65 like we used to.
Also, the Govt. doesn't have a penny of its own money. It all has to come from taxpayers, or more realistically, future taxpayers who aren't even born yet. British sense of fair play kicks in over facts like that. The French don't have a sense of fair play.

They also repay the money spent doing up their house. She is made for life now though as she has a sprog sired by a royal, which will be priceless on the U.S. talk show circuit.
Pretty sure they will also retain Duke / Duchess titles.
Nor bad for a girl who used to carry the red boxes on the U.S. version of Deal or no deal.
I predict she will dump him within 3 years.

Back to the Omega today as Airfix 1 is back on the road. Changed the knocking n/s balljoint for a shiny new one and cleaned up the inner  faces of the front discs. Will need new front discs some time this year.

I read that the unions are leaning towards Lisa Nandy.  They'll be fighting like rats in a sack!  ;D

Nice girl with an impressive rack but I think the job would prove too much for her.

Flipping burgers in McDonalds would prove too much for her. She is thick as pigshite. She is married to a millionaire though, who ironically, has links to the fracking industry.

Dave the builder .....
Your a fellow French car sufferer
glad you got it sorted, the plug to injector and injector loom seem a common fail ,go brittle with the heat  :(

at least you now have the diagnostic software for the next fault that pops up  :D  :-X  :P

Yep, its actually quite a useful little tool. Claims to be able to code keys and injectors for example. So I shall keep it as long as I keep the car. Im sure I will need it again.
Thanks again for the help. The Renault forum wasn't much help at all. The resident guru,s favourite advice to members with cars that wont run or difficult t start, is to spray easy start or brake cleaner down he inlet and keep spraying it until it runs properly !
When I told him at was the juice of satan and wouldn't have it anywhere near my car he seemed less keen to offer advice.

Not to mention the approx. 30 billion we have paid into the EU since the time we voted to leave it, but they used every trick in the book to stop it happening.. Half a million quid is a drop in the ocean.

I would like to see the death of Labour and other left wing parties and have the Tories ( who are no longer right wing anyway) in power with a party similar to Brexit / UKIP in opposition to keep them on their toes.

To recap - number 4 injector packed up, and it took me a while and some head scratching to diagnose, then replace it.
Then immediately after the car produced various codes relating to number 1 injector, which was puzzling to say the least.
It would run but only on 3 pots.
Lots of trying checking various things, in between spending much time at work and waiting for some dry weather meant it dragged on for weeks.
Bought a Bluetooth diagnostics thingy last week, which gave the same fault codes and lots of live data I didn't understand.
Went back to basics today, and had a think. I had swapped injectors from pot 1 to pot 4 but the fault codes stayed the same so the problem wasn't the injector but somewhere before it.
Then with the engine running, pulled the connector from pot 2 and measured the voltage, which was just over 2 volts. Did the same on pot 1 and got the same result.
Logic told me the only thing left was a bad connection between the plug and injector. Carefully bent the little contacts on the plug inwards slightly and hey presto. All is well again.
Dave the builder told me to check connections at the plugs quite a while ago. Should have took it more seriously than I did.
Thanks for all the advice and encouragement, and even the solution in the end Dave.
Your a star.
