Hi guys just a little story of what happind and some advie wud be nice.
Just come out the local car shopping car park and got to third gear doin about 30 and the engine cut out So i pulled over and turned the key off then on again startedup fine so carried on and about 20 foot down the road made a very weird noise and cut out agen. so i did the same turned the key to off then started it again and drove on. now at this point i was getting concerned and thinking am i stupid for carrying on, i was thinking it was something to do with the sparks/idle/genral ticking over of the engine. . so i kept it in 2nd gear keeping revs up 2 about 3500 400 am guessing(dont actually have a reve metre lol) but i was doing around 30 mph. made ity to the top off my girlfriends road and made a really loud crunch grindy wearing noise and cut out, so i ounced up on the curb and as i did noticed smoke. so i turned everything off and opened the bonet to look. the fan belty qwas smoking were which i now know to b the A/c motor thing is. now i was quite worried at this point as i didnt know what it was so i rang the aa who came out in 15 mins. all he did was unplug it and its fine works perfectly.
What i want to know is, as the car is will it be ok or should i get it repaired. . i have neva used the a/c as since i bought the car it needed re-gasing and have never really had the urge to get it done?
There was symptoms of this a month or so ago ( slight squeak cuming from the fanbelt area) which i did get checked only to be told it is too quiet to be acurately identified but now we know definately what it was haha
