    Car Decided to quit on me

    Drove home from work today.

    Tried to go to my local garage, but unfortunately diesel pumps were out of service. So went to another one near by.

    Only put £50 in. Drove home

    Tried to go back out about twenty minutes later, and my car would not start.

    Contacted Endsleigh Roadside recovery, and a green flag van turned up.

    he believes the injector's control unit has packed up.

    It tries to tick over, but no fuel is going throgh the system.

    The engineer suggested this is an expensive repair.

    Was hoping someone might be able to shed some light on to actual costs.

    Or is it time to look for a new car.
