Thanks Artermis - waaay beyond my capabilities as am no grease monkey, I can change a tyre and refill the oil and change wiper blades but thats about it, I'm afraid. If i took it to my local garage, what sort of cost would this be?? Or is it worth leaving for a few days to see if it 'self-fixes'??
Also, anyone any idea on what price i could advertise this for sale at - bearing in mind the prob/fault above... it is 51 plate, 5 door, metalic red, bose stereo, in-car parrot kit, 80k on the clock, mot'd, tax'd, new battery, brakes replaced 4k ago, exhaust and tyres etc within the last 12-6 months. Has had its cam belt replaced at 70k. Any suggestions on price (for a quick sale) very welcome!! Thank you.
