Any ideas on the following :

1. - On two occassions recently ( both in rain ) the car wont idle it cuts out but then as quickly as it develops the problem it clears up.

2. It has developed a noise which sounds as the though the exhaust is scrapping on the ground - which it isn't - butI don't notice it inside the car - seems to be louder when its idling and low revs.

3. The temp doesn't run at 90 which appears to be the norm from reading through some of the posts - thiough it does get there when sat in traffic, heater is fine tough.

There are no warning lights and all appears fine but bit worried by the noise. I have no idea where to start and wouldnt be any good if I did as hubby doesn't do car
s:(
Am planning on going up to Leeds soon where family can look at it but don't want to risk doing it any damage

Thanks again peeps -

Su:confused:

3, Thermostat needs replacing, should sit at just under 90 all the time after it's warmed up. :thumbs:
