Hi.Havn't used a group before! I have an S reg 95 with 100000 on the
clock.Its been serviced and had a new turbo 18 months ago.Last Nov I
had a total power failure going up a hill.The engine would not
restart,turning very slowly as though the battery was flat.Called the
RAC and by the time they got to us the battery had built up enough
juice to start the engine.It was taken to my local garage who checked
everything(I suspected the cat).They flushed the oil etc but found
nothing.Battery seemed ok.
Car was doing fine until Thursday when it cut out again! Out come the
RAC and it started with a jump,though again battery seemed to be
recovering as we waited.Sadly the engine sounded like it contained a
bag of nails!! To my ear it sounds top end.Cam shaft? It's sitting on
the drive at the moment.The engine starts but it has the death rattle.
Sorry this has turned into a book rather than a message. Anyone got any
ideas or had similar problems? Answers gratefully received. Thanks Al
