    Vauxhall Astra 1.7 CDTI

    It was working when he got there like I said! lol.

    Its in the garage now, but it gonna cost me hell of a lot, in lost time(supposed to be busy today and tomorrow) so lost money there and the guy at the garage earlist he can diagnose it is tomorrow afternoon.

    Something is cutting the fuel off, looked on net could be imoboliser, or crank senser....but the mechanic told me to go under my car which I did, he goes, can you hear that humming? I was like yeah??

    He goes sounds like inticooler problem could be blocked, which would explain why it laggs when am driving!
