Ta Duncan, my Dad was wondering if it was the coil-pack issue (that Bernard had helped out the last owner with)re-appearing. Sadly it's getting it to a t4 that's the issue as sadly neither you nor Russ are near us! (I've also a hi-line IPK (Instrument pack (IPK from the German)) for programing in too!)
I'm hoping it's just from being sat and not ran - and that the drive in tomorrow will clear it. Does anyone know if a dodgy spark plug would cause an eml problem?
I think I'm down for the next nano (looking forward to it!) if I can get insurance sorted then I'll bring the car over (even the thought of the drive over brings a smile to ones face!) Failing that, I'll be in the diesel!
Thanks all again for the posts, although the list of options to retrofit is still long, at least the car will hopefully be able to be used.
