So, yet again my astra ended up on the back of a recovery truck!
most interesting bit was getting it off, took a while lol:
I broke down at 2am on a sunday morning!!
It seems my fuel pump is leaking from a seal or somewhere and spraying out everywhere, lucky not to have a fire apparently.
I was going from middlesex to kent, (down by the sea), and came of the motorway to smoke everywhere out the bonnet and diesel being sprayed all over the engine bay .
So over 3 hours later, (no more than 54mph down all roads eeek) i got home last night just after midnight!
So does anyone have any idea on the cost or likely probs? It seems to defo be the Fuel pump, injector pipes have been checked etc, it still runs and drives, albeit with diesel spraying everywhere!
To say i was gutted is an understatement!
i was about 170 miles from home as well. eeeek
