on the way to college this morning. had been driving for like 1 min. stopped at a junction, and hte engine cut out, i only noticed coz the engine management light came on and the steering got heavy! so started it up fine, and off i went. then further down the road, i noticed my speedo has stopped working too?! bit further on into the journey, it cut out again, then again! wtf is going on? it was fine last night! i checked the water level and it seemed fine! gona check the oil when i get in later, but it cant b that?

I said i thought it was around 18% but wasn't sure. Don't get stressed cos Vauxhall "partners" get more discounts off parts than "employees"

I just think you're cool because you are on holiday from work and you spend all day on corsasport.

Also i think its extrodinary that you can tell Dave whats wrong with his car without even seeing it, i'm not saying you're wrong but there are other possabilties than what you gave
