Ok so two weeks ago wednesday drove my GT to cork (from killarney) to have it serviced by Lee Garage. Dropped it off at 9 and went of down to Kinsale for the day with the gf. All good so far.....and then..
At lunch time got a phone call from Mike, service done but problems found, namely
1. Injector Seals
The injector needed to be taken out, cleaned and reseated or sealed or whatever
2. Turbo pipe needed to be replaced
3. Handbrake cable
So when I heard injector problem I was like ok Il book it in again for the following Wednesday.
Went to work thursday, finished work and sat in, pushed clutch down started lifted my leg but the clutch stayed down
Got the car to local garage, slave cylinder gone, wouldnt be in til tuesday.....
Got the car back tuesday and then off up to cork wednesday to get the above list done.
Gave the car to Lee garage, they rang, diesel specialist was out on a call, injectors wouldnt be done til thursday. Brother lives in cork, i was off no biggie...
Got a call thursday at 1 they were working on the 3rd injector and hed ring again in 2 hours.
Then he rang at 3, he told me the engineer had been standing facing the engine with a spring in his hand, the spring sprang out of his hand and down the injector port and into the cylinder resting on the piston head. The head was going to have come off the engine, spring removed, and then new seals, TB and water pump.
Getting it back tomorrow, cant wait, so if you see a blue GT with a smiling driver hightailing toward the kingdom please give a wave, never got one in Kerry.
I have to say Lee were v good to deal with, not giving out just someone might get laugh out of the story
