I drive the car about 1/2 mile from cold and then pull up and sit ... engine idle becomes erratic and then if you stand outside the car you can hear a loud clicking metallic sound and the revs go up then they drop and again the same noise. At this point the coolant / engine light comes on (not the spanner) and the car will eventually stall.
This car has had just about everything replaced and yet still they cannot find fault , the only fault code reported was: P1160
Problem is that it does this when approaching roundabouts as well which is not so handy but is not always reproduceable.
Is this the earth problem ? Does anyone have any ideas ... Is there anybody in this area want to come and listen, coz I am stumped !!!
