    @Filters Nah man, we've tried everything and still can't fid the fault for its miss-fire :worried:, plugs, leads, injectors, sensors, coilpacks, the lot. Each time we try and fix it it starts off better then just slowly miss-fires more and more until it starts crapping itself constantly :worried:

    Tried the lambda sensors buddy? I had a miss fire issue and it turned out to be the wiring going to the lambda

    @Bug thanks but I think we have already tried that :worried: Phil fixed the timing belt as that was out since I bought it and since then it coincidently has started since, some of the guys think it was maybe mapped to run differently but Phil doesn't agree :/, and that's not to say I'm blaming his work it's just frustrating that we have no idea what it is haha

    Things like that are so frustrating, definitely worth having fresher eyes take a look, if your local to Pengam try Alans mots Alan in there has worked on all my cars and as a trouble shooter he's been the best for me

    Just seen I been tagged and had a quick look on the festival link to see dates, unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it being so close in time and none of my current projects finished.

    I'll definitely be up for it next year though, i should have 2 of my clios done by then so should only be a case of which one to put on the trailer.

    I forgot you'd tagged me in this thing (I suck at forums!)
    Anyway honestly I'll decide in the next week or two. Having just munched my way around Europe I'm not sure I can be arsed to spend 5 hours in a car again each way! I certainly won't be taking my car around the track but I may well come along for the lulz.
    Plus I can get there and back on a single tank :tongueout:

    Nooo I was just being facetious old boy, I will be honest I half expect the gearbox to let go :tearsofjoy: but ahhh well if it does it does. It's lasted near 10'000 miles of abuse so far which is more than I expected with its whine.
