Is there no way of getting it out with out lowering the engine? That's not something I would want to start doing!

Cheers BOF, belt ordered for tomorrow and an alternator too. How difficult is an alternator and belt change on your drive? Is it an easy job or does half the engine have to come out to get access to it?

Sorry the car has been used everyday since I changed the alternator in August 2013, and it was changed because the one that was on it was original and gave up. And the problem only started yesterday.

George is right!! Get the leak off test done!! The problem was the 4th injector was FUBAR'd!! Replaced and everything runs like clockwork now! The code kept coming back as the Fuel inlet metering valve even after changing it. So the code does not always mean that is what is wrong!


Steesh, a local garage charged me £30 for the leak off test! But getting the injector changed getting them recoded, the EGR cleaned out, a new fuel filter (as it had a cheapy one in there so changed for a BOSCH one) and labour cost me £440!!! Plus the £189 for replacing the metering valve for no fookin reason :angry:


Still problem noe solved and its a dream to drive now!!!

Thanks guys, a mate had a code reader, looks like the Fuel Pump Inlet Metering Valve has caused the fault. WIll replace that and see what happens. And gonna get a blanking plate for the EGR as have read a lot about the EGR causing problems. WIll keep you guys informed if changing the valve solves the problem :-)
