    I've got a PC based diagnostic reader - but not used it for years.... will probably let the garage do it at the next service which is not too far away. Hard to believe I've had this car nearly a year!

    Well Alfie private messaged me with some thoughts about the thermostat, and in turn the cooling fan. It got me thinking, as I did notice the car is not reaching temperature.

    I think perhaps a new thermostat is needed before I take the car anywhere again!

    He's doing community service for destroying a tree with a TPO on it.

    Seems special branch caught up with him in the end.

    Doubt he's twigged who it was that saw fit to grass him up.



    He at least graced Alec's showthread with his presence yesterday, so he is still with us.

    C'mon Chris, your audience awaits.

    A root 'n' branch project update on its way perhaps?

    The mid term history threads:
    Previous history, with red wheel of doom on page 1!
    Recent history - the, erm, "Tibbles" thread.

    Still wafting
