Took it down to the car wash earlier. Not something I normally do, but it was caked.
Got the 'Top Wash' which included foam and blow dry.....lol
On trying to get out of the car wash, it wouldn't start....cranked the engine for a good 3 or 4 mintues and still nothing, engine just turned over.
Turned ignition on and off to re-heat glow plugs a number of times but that didn't make any difference.
Well, I had to get out of the carwash, so jammed it in first and cranked it over to get me out, upon which, it sprung into life. No coughs or splutters.
It's fine now, but the ruddy service light is on.
BTW, it's an 02 1.7DTi
