    Following advice:

    put the above into proper english, use some sort of sentence structure & punctuation, as it stands its too hard to read.

    I booked it in thinking it was a problem with the timing belt, but it turned out that my water pump had failed.

    I left it with Vauxhall to fix under warranty.
    Since i got the car back it fells really sluggish but I just carried on with it.

    I drove it today and for no reason the brakes locked up, all the lights on the dashboard came on, even traction control has turned its self off, and the car won't go over 4000 RPM

    I have no idea whats up with it and obviously nowhere is open again until Tuesday.

    Has anyone had any trouble like this before? If so, what would you suggest it could be?
