Got my motor back from the dealer the following day . Intermittent start problem and subsequent wont start problem caused by a faulty relay servicing the fuel pump ....or so I am told . Twenty euro for the relay one hundred and thirty euro for the "labour " and 21% vat on top . Could be worse I suppose . I hope thats the end of it for a while. -- From the desktop of Peter C <nopsamt.ie> wrote in message news:CSesb.5562$bD.20679nopsam.indigo.ie... > Another angle closed off but thanks for responding Richard .
