A new Bosch crank sensor brought it back to life, however there is a slight miss-fire and engine rev's problem. It should drive you to a pre-booked Mot, however I'm not going to guarantee that. Trailer or transporter recommended.

£75, which will reduce by £7-50p per week until its sold.

I need to speak to Ms C first but this looks like an ideal* solution to the fact that her Discovery is going to need a bit* of work to gain another test. How much grief is the misfire likely to cause?

The miss-fire is on tick over, it clears as soon as the engine is revved. Tame mechanic suspects idle control valve. He did clean it at the last mot which cured it for a while, but it gradually came back.

 

The engine revving up and down by itself, which started to occur a few months after the last mot is more of a concern. Whether the two are related I don't know.

 

I will be taking it for a drive next Sunday, I'll do an up-date then.

That would be grand, our lass is quite keen. We are planning on heading up to Scotland in the autumn so it would be good to have appropriate transport.

During my ownership it has averaged 23 round the houses, 33 on regular trips to Wales and an impressive 38 on the motorway.

I'd say so. I'd be tempted to give the idle control valve another wash out with carb cleaner.

Throttle body too.

Worked wonders for this latest V70 I've bought.

I might need to get this sooner rather than later.  I've just holed the sump on the 405 leaving us with one working car that was built at Solihull and has 3 weeks MOT.

Fired it up today, miss-fire still present and revving up and down as well as from start-up.  Also the dash warning lights failed to illuminate.

 

More news on Sunday.
