    be sure not to get any wd40 no the pads or discs! to me it sounds like the speedos knackerd, is it just a speedo or does it have a rev counter on it? if not nows the perfect time to upgrade

    ..i have both rev and speedo..sppedo is the problem,
    The car also turns off if im about to stop, took it to the garage the guy said the speedo could be the cause of it all as the car dosent know what speed its traveling at and cuts out so im replacing the speedo sensor which would cost £60.
