    Thumbs Down What a day :(

    Yesterday was a bad day for my lil zaffy driving down the road when my oil cap blew off and oil sprayed everywhere (smoke eveywhere not good).....could'nt get a replacement any where...phoned AA they sorted it was driving home and the lil bugger was fine until i stopped,where it wouldn't turn over,got AA again and they said the fuel injection pump is f**ked.

    Jus thought id cheer you lot up surely know ones day was as damn crappy lol

    Cant wait to find out tomorrow how much its going to cost

    you bet it'll be expensive if you phone the dealer

    are there no independant garages near you that have a good reputation?
    might be worth calling them before you go to vauxhall
