Can anyone give me any sugestions on my recent problem. I have a 2002 1.8 tdci with 124k on the clock. On Friday evening I was driving into birmingham, along the duel carriageway and I came to an island. I slowed down for the island and all of a sudden the car just cut out, with no warning signs at all and I know I didn't stall it. So, I tried to re-start it and it just would not turn over. When I was trying to turn it over the glow plug light started flashing.
In the end I pulled it to the side of the road, (with NO assistance by any other fecker on the road I might add (though it is birmingham I suppose) just snears and gormless looks) and had to get my wife to toe me back home.
Today I have just changed the glow plugs and it still won't turn over. This is soo frustrating, at christmas I had to falk out £700 for a new clutch and DMF. This bloody car is just cripling me at the moment!!!
Just about to call the AA, but if anything like this has happened to anyone else, then some advice would be gratefully received.
