Mr. Blue, please report to the Detention Room after school and write out these lines 500 times:-

"I must pay attention in class and not do naughty things in the back row"

Cold could be a clue; after reading Rods2's message, I wondered if the sort of freezer spray that plumbers use might help? Less risky than a stick-and-run approach!
What sort of professional pest controller "don't do ladders"?

Thank you all for your kind words - feels good!
I promise to take care of her, and hope for a similar result next year.
We ought to have a "fingers crossed" pictogram.....

That's what Forum wisdom has it, Kevin, but this chap was Old School and probably didn't update himself? He was thorough though and inspected the undersides, etc., and the poor Omega had a good vibro-massage with those shaker plates - not seen them used before! :o

.....and no advisories! Sod's Law would have it that on tne pre-MOT warm-up run, the EML light came on. Roadside diagnostic said No Codes Found, so I'm puzzled, but the MOT man didn't comment on it, so happy days! :y :y :y 8) 8)

An assocoated question: for the last couple of years the EML light has been coming on randomly and I have "cured" it by treating the car to some Cataclean. It didn't always seem to "put that light out", as the ARP chief says, so maybe it truly is random?
Anyway, in preparation for tomorrow's MOT, I used my OBD code reader to see if any codes had been stored, with a view to clearing them if they had.
No codes reported.
Is that to be expected? ???

Sorry Mr. Varche, way before my time, as I'm only 29!
Not my genre, either; I'm more jazz and classics, with a sprinkling of Meat Loaf and Kate Bush thrown in.
Favourite vocalists? Marion Montgomery, Julie Covington and, of course, Frank Sinatra. :y 8)

I know you hate their screenwash, but why do you think their oil is of poor quality - surely it must meet the appropriate specifications?

I've just complained to ECP about an incorrect air filter delivered last June (I know, I just didn't get round to fitting it!), thinking that they would ignore me as it was that long ago, and a lady cdalled Rebecca responded immediately, asking for details of purchase.
I sent the PayPal details, and she aploogised for the error, and promised a replacement as soon as possible.
I had a text message from DHL this morning saying that they will deliver on Monday!
Sorry TB, it must be you?   ;)

Fair comment, Sir Tigger and so might I have done if I hadn't been happy with the garage I went to this morning, but it had a good feel to it, with Old School mechanics!  :y

About 70 miles, TG, and I intend to ask him to do a full service and any repair work needed after the MOT, which I have booked locally on recommendation. The bloke endeared himself to me with his opening remark - "I like older cars"!
I have definitely moved away from those ServiceStop people after comments - and no real recommendation - on here: loss-leading price, to be followed by "advisory/essential" work?
