First day of the Holiday.....

First day of the Holiday.....

Post by Barbs on Sat 8 Sep 2018 - 17:11

Well today is not the day I planned for. Drop Jake off at the cattery in the Purple one. Get back and load up Blue Boy. Set off and a light comes on..... little engine light is flashing so back home. Doncaster gridlocks and it takes 2 hours for recovery to arrive. Engine is misfiring so we get loaded up on a transporter and taken to Halfords. New coil and plugs and we are off.  No we not. Now ESP warning and spanner has come on so back to the garage. Puts it on the code reader no fault. Takes him for a spin no problem. So hopefully we can try again tomorrow. Oh and my brolly broke. Don't it's worth buying a Lottery ticket....

W111NNDY needed a coil pack ages ago and that sorted the misfire. The only time I’ve had the ESP light on is when the tracking was so far out that the electronics thought I was skidding (I’d hit a huge rock and bent the back axle ...).

I hope blue boy is fit and healthy soon.

Glad to hear you eventually got away OK.

Hope you enjoyed your trip. 

Recently changed my plugs at 33000 mls but retained coil packs.

After your experience I wonder if I ought to change them as a safeguard

I didn'the know what to do but their point was the plugs and coil pack were the same age so advise to have it done.
