166 Sprortronic Failure Is it the ECU?
Folks I must be jinxed driving home a 20 mile journey I noticed a kick from the normally very smooth gearbox it then got progressively worse eventually I was literally down to what felt like first gear. I was in a bad place a dual carriageway the A33 off the M4 junction11 near Reading and it was blooming scary. So after surviving the speeding traffic I called the AA and was towed home. Anyway need to get it fixed quickly as i need her for work plus i miss her already.
I guess its the sportronic ECU and saw a thread from Ignas166 who bought a new one from Autolusso, I am just worried it may be leaky a/c rad which i hear can cause the ECU to fail...
Anyway i'll be hitting the phone tommorow early! I believe its NED at Autolusso who comes on the forum so NED if you are reading this I need a 3.0 litre ECU ASAP please!! Everyone says its a DIY job....is it easy?
Sounds crazy this but I still love the car loads I was just getting back into enjoying her after the suspension rebuild handles like nothing else need to FIX her help!!!
