So having spent god knows how much lately on stuff that needed to be done (timing belt for one), I still don't have a 100% car...
Main problem is STILL a water leak, but I doubt anyone can help with that here - just an annoying problem I'll have to solve myself.
However another issue that is slowly getting worse is the lumpy/really lumpy running the car randomly falls into doing.
There doesn't seem to be any loss of power when I put my foot down, and nothing much at idle either. But if I'm tootling along with very slight revs the car starts to jump around. The rev counter doesn't twitch, but it does feel engine related, and if I put my foot down a bit, its gone, and if I put the clutch in, its gone.
DMF was done about 10k ago, so (hope!) not that, the car does have the EGR blocked, and to be honest, i muffed up and one bolt where the block goes is broken - however I'm pretty sure it's sealed.
However, the fuel filter hasn't been done for 60k (should be 37500), and I haven't looked at the air filter either, though it's supposedly a zero maintenance k&n (standard oem replacement type).
I'm currently sat at work hence why I haven't bothered with the easy checks yet, but I wondered if the fuel filter being so over the hill could really have such an effect?
Also, the fault still happens with cruise control on - does this mean its 100% not throttle position sensor, or would that be too easy?!
