Had to take my 145 QV for itís first repair today and was reasonably pleased with the outcome. I thought I was going to need a new Exhaust down pipe but luckily they can weld it for just £30 rather than the £200 odd it would have cost for a new one. Theyíre also doing a gearbox oil change for just £25.00, which is a lot better than spending a whole morning doing it yourself.
The main problem had was the infamous engine stutter/rough Idle. This was also accompanied by the injection light staying on for a few seconds every other day and the temperature gauge having a mind of itís own.
Anyway to cut a long story short they hooked it up and have told me a Coolant sensor had gone wrong (not sure what the proper name is), which theyíll supply and fit for £90.00.
Whatís the proper name for the sensor and do you think these prices are goof/fair/high?
