Are you planning on doing the timing belt yourself? If so, nice one! Thats the one job I never want to get involved in, mainly because I know I might forget something, start the engine and BOOM!!! one fooked engine  :D. I would get it done mate, just for your peace of mind really and for the sake of a couple of hundred quid. Have you inspected your timing belt? There are usually tell tale signs that it hasn't been replaced for a while, such as discolouring, cracking, worn teeth. If you've got the parts, then take it to your local independent garage to fit for a bit cheaper and would save you the hassle.


BTW I love your sig  :lol:, I've only got the first 4 done  :D

Did you get this fixed Josh? First port of call for me would be to replace the broken glow plug. Not sure about the rest but, Stephen seems to know what he's talking about. When I cleaned my EGR valve, I kept the engine running, sprayed for a bout 2 seconds (you'll hear the idle revs drop), then I gave it a few revs. Then I repeated the process. I ended up taking the flexi pipe off that goes to the EGR valve, giving it a good clean out, before re-fitting it and blanking it off. Worked wonders, so once you get it started again have another go and don't let this little hiccup put you off ;).
