    had my car serviced today

    had my car serviced today, got them to check it with tech 2 too because of that old starting prob i had that i talked about before, nehow it came up with 7 faults :shock:

    anyhow they worked down the list clearing the codes as they went, turned out that there was a small hole in a vacume pipe, which they replaced, i was just a bit confused (i know not difficult for me)because i haddnt noticed any warning lights, apart from them starting probs i had. anyhow im gona see how it goes,

    Could it be possible they were old faults that hadn't been cleared???

    re: had my car serviced today

    thats what they said, could have been old faults, also he said that it could be a kind of domino affect from the faulty vacume pipe,

    ne how he cleared all faults and took it for test drive and rechecked it, i think he said that it was def the litle vacume pipe that was at fault.

    he just told me to keep an eye out for the warning light or any funny behavoir then if i get them get it rechecked straight away.

    the pipe was at the rear of the engine bay on the left just behind the air filter box.

    have had no dodgy starts yet and she seems a lot smother than before, fingers crossed no more probs.

    kept up very well with a nice gold coulor coupe on the way home from work.
