Remember that car that broke down on me last week?
Apparently it has a problem with the Engine management system, telling all four fuel injectors to turn off when the car is moving, preventing fuel and air from entering the cylinders and cutting off the engine. Apparently a problem with the ignition system is causing the computer to think the engine is off, so off the engine goes.
A new ignition system should do me fine. The cost is free as the car is still under warranty. Evans Halshaw (a Ford garage) just took the car to a Vauxhall garage, and they know the car, so diagnosed it quick sharp.
On the downside, insurance is renewed this month.
