Right, im starting to get rather agitated with one post wonders so heres a little thread which will be put into two sections. The first section is about what we expect from you (the person with the issue) and the second is common problems/whether something is fixable via online

WHAT WE EXPECT

EML, Airbags, ABS Etc
- What codes you have?
IT IS COMPLETELY POINTLESS POSTING A THREAD WITHOUT THESE, OTHERWISE YOU ARE WASTING OUR/YOUR TIME

- When did it come on?
Hot, cold, today, last week, when i went to get a 'cheeky nandos with the lads'.......

- Did you experience any issue when it came on?
Misfires, lack of power, juddering, cutting out, engine exploding and car on fire......

- What do you have to do to induce the fault?
Slow, cruising, hammering it to warp speed

- Is it permanent?
IS IT STILL HAPPENING FOR THE SIMPLES

- What have you done recently to the car?
That banging induction kit doesnt so great now does it?

- What have you done to try and fix it?
A hammer doesnt count

Rattles
- Where is it to the closest point

- Have you modified anything recently?

- Have you done anything to the car recently?

Water Leaks

WATER TEST THE BLOODY CAR FIRST THEN REPORT BACK WITH YOUR FINDINGS



SECTION TWO

It Does amaze me how people ask for help and advice on an issue but forget to even tell you what car it is at times. Perhaps we are all Psychic!!

I might be a Mechanic but I cant fix Stupid!
