Took it to about 6000rpm in 3rd gear on this dual carrigeway, then started to slow down for my turn off. Slowed down to about 20mph, got it into second started bringing the clutch up and it just died. No bang, no smoke, nothing. Just went off like someone had taken the keys out of the ignition. When i try to start it, it turns over but wont fire up.

Managed to roll it to underneath a street light and theres water leaking from under where the large rad pipe goes into the cylinder head on the left hand side, other than that i cant see anything cos its dark

dunno if theres a spark, didnt have any tools on me. The water is leaking down onto the crankshaft sensor so fingers crossed its just a knackered gasket and a damp sensor

woo its fixed!!

not sure how, but i tried the fuel pump relay on stuyws car and it worked fine, so i pulled the fuel pump itself out and checked all the connections, which seemed fine, also had a look at the connectors on the fuel injectors and they were also ok. Then just tried startin it on the off chance and it worked
