5 minutes of trying she finally fires up. Gets half way home and the glow plug light starts flashing, and the power goes so I pull over and it dies. Wont start again.
After another 5-10 minutes its going again and gets all the way home. Shut it off, went back out and it starts fine, although i'm now reluctant to drive it.

Starting to think I should scrap it and buy a bus pass.

Unfortunatly they sent the wrong 1 out 2day, so gotta wait till 2morrow to fit it now.
As for the lack of starting and stalling, recons its probably the crank sensor, new one bought and installed and the old one looked absolutly cream crackered although cant test without a starter motor.
But putting it all together, I had a diagnostic done when my turbo blew 3 years ago, and it showed cylinder misfire, which coulda been an early sign of it failing i believe.
That with the stalling when cold at low speeds, high fuel consumption these new problems im thinking all could be related, fingers crossed for tomorrow

Stuck the old crank sensor back in car started no ticking. The CPS is very slightly different, It has a different coloured shaft, didnt think this was a problem but doesnt have the three 'bumps' on the end of it. Guess thats going back aswell.
Decided to risk going shoppping as havent been able to go for nearly 2 weeks, got there fine but had to get green flag to tow it home

Drove it this afternoon ran like a dream. Went to go out 2nite, rotating and not firing again, back to the drawing board. Although im guessing now tht its not the crank sensor
