Further to tha saga...

Miss DBG starts up for work today, lumpy as owt - cats rattling like a good un (7month old and kaput  >:( - new replacement arrived yesterday) off she goes,

She rings me on route, and lumpy on acceleration, doesn't seem to want to go over 2.5k, no power. Sounds like engine in a tizzy, and gone into limp home mode. Tried to get her to switch off and on, but no opportunity to. Maintaining speed seemed smooth, when stationary in D=lumpy, in P=smooth  ??? after 20 mins or so, seems to have straightened out, running lovely.

it was damp this morning - Dis pack?
bit of gunk in the recently very disturbed fuel lines stuck in an injector, which the redex and Tesco Utimatum has dissolved.
chunk of cat blocking the exhaust, causing backpressure nastiness.

let's hope say it'll never happen again, but what do we think?

Yup. I do keep an eye on it, (and has been sealed with bathroom sealant) but as we know, things change. Will have a look tonight check it's not soaked up some.

just occurred to me we park half on the pavement, so at an angle, and last night we happened to be facing the other way. ( we never face this way, but I wanted to check the recently swapped idler arm's nuts were torqued correctly)- meaning any water would run the opposite direction to usual. Will investigate when she's home...and the missus.  :y

You have more faith in the effectiveness of Redex than I do if you think it's moved enough dirt to upset the fuel system. And the fuel filter would catch it before it got to the engine.


Most fuel faults are electrical.....
