    We'll i've just paid to have the enigine sorted after the timing belt snapped whilst driving which cost £900.

    I've just had to take it back in this morning as the Engine Management light came on this morning when i was in traffic and the car went limp. At the same time, i moved off to drive and a noise came from the drivers front wheel when i was turning a corner. When it limped into the work car park, i reversed, and what can only be discribed as a crunching noise started to come from the back drivers wheel.

    I've got little to none, brake left at the back and the front problem is being looked into now.

    I feel like crying, i've had the car for 3mth and out of that i think i've only drove it for 1 and a half months.

    *sigh*

    Sod's law, but it does happen, at least when you (if) you get it fixed, you would have replaced most of the stuff and everything will be new!

    Well everything engine wise has been done, other than the management light that keeps coming on when i'm stationary in traffic. The brakes got done last night and everything (so far) is spot on with them.

    I can't suss out the problem thats causing the management light to come on when i'm stood still. Is it the common fault that i think jam was going on about in a prev post?

    Any help would be great

    Cheers for the comments tho guys
