Hi there and thanks in advance for taking time to review this post, my first, and for any feedback you may have. I purchased my first and current ***** back in July 2011, a beautiful looking JTD 156 16v Sports-wagon in silver, albeit quite old on a 53 plate it looked the business and still does. However, recently the bills for numerous problems are mounting up, new rad, bushes for suspension, etc. Now though I've had weeks of the car not starting, typically when sat parked up for 4 days at a time but not exclusively so. The engine turns over and won't fire until 6 or 7 attempts over a 10 or 15 minute period. It then bursts into life but then a warning message comes up with 'motor control system failure' 'go to dealer'. After several trips to two different garages and several hundred pounds later, it happened again yesterday! Can anyone offer any insights or am I facing into even bigger bills to have this fault finally diagnosed and rectified?
