147 broken down on the A1!!
My 147 2.0 Lusso has died on me!
I was driving from Nottingham to Darlington, I'm now 36 miles short of my destination. I've been using the cruise control set at a steady 70, and the car has had an intermittent misfire pretty much all the way. It was previously missing slightly around 2k and 4k revs. Suddenly the misfire got a lot worse, then the engine died, no engine management light or failure messages, so I've managed to get to the hard shoulder, but the engine refuses to start, it wouldn't even turn over at first. I thought at first that maybe the cambelt had snapped, but after pulling back the cambelt cover it seems fine and tight. I also maybe thought the MAF was on the way out, but I've not had any error message. I tried to turn the engine over again and it started, bu ran uber rough, wouldn't idle, and wouldn't rev, and it sounded like a bag of spanners! Then the 'low oil pressure' warning flashed up, followed by an immobiliser fault message! Now it will sort of turn over but not start!
I'm currently waiting for Green Flag to turn up and assist me.....
