There I was one day happily tootering along in my lovely Berlingo Multispace
1.9D. When all of a sudden the engine started sounding like a large piece of
old rusty farm machinery. I mean...eeeuch! The acceleration dropped but it
kept going. I stopped. But as I was in the middle of nowhere I decided to
keep going to the nearest garage. At the garage I cut the engine and went to
speak to a mechanic. He came out. Started the engine and lo and behold it
was fine!! And it has been fine ever since.
He suggested that the engine management system had crashed knocking out the
timing. And turning off and restarting and "rebooted" the computer.
Anyone any thoughts? What he said maked sense I suppose but it kind of
bothers me. I`d like to know what happened.
