thanks, garage has done that and says the lock is broken i  would have thought that would have checked whether it needs a clean etc.  they just stated I need a new lock mechanism, and they have traced one in Germany..... and this will take a month to get here

The garage states that the lock is broken and I need a complete mechanism, which I believe are a bit rare....

Hi me again,  After a rather hard frost a few night ago I had difficulty opening the drivers door, after using some warm water I rather yanked the door open and Im afraid I might have done some damage to the closing mech.   It will close sometimes but if I hit a bump or dip in the road I hear a click and the door is ajar and Im in trouble. Is it possible for me to repair this? I am not a mechanic, but my local garage cant do anything until Monday next, you have helped me with various thing in the past and look forward to you help with this, thanks very much....MF

  Thanks for your replies, I know I am ignorant about cars, but where is a crank sensor and fuel filter?  I have not had anymore trouble with a tank half full of fuel   Could someone as thick as me do the job?  If so, where do I look for these things?

 Hi, me again, This forum have been so helpful to me in the past so here I come again seeking your expert knowledge,   I have a 2.6 auto and have been finding the engine dying on me particularly on roundabouts and corners  I did note this was mainly when I was low on fuel, not on empty, no petrol symbol showing but it seems to happen when I am on the low side I seem to cure itif I go to N then re-engage.... is it a problem with the gearbox? Your advice would be much appreciated, many thanks

Thanks for all your help but, I am afraid Icannot do what is required, all I know about an engine is that it drives the car..... I will have to give it some thought as my garage wants about 160 to replace spark plugs and that dont include coils etc.    many thanks for all your advice MF
