Steve, now you have some idea of the hair pulling I went through with mine - one day the engine ran like a bat out of hell, the next I was having to manually change down to keep moving up hills, then back to normal again the following day. Some days it even changed moods in the same day! Everything I touched made it get better or worse for no apparent reason making it impossible to do any meaningful troubleshooting. Some days I started to doubt my sanity.... :lol:

After almost 12 months, I've had enough Simon, Jim has graciously agreed to carry on the battle on my behalf, so hopefully we will win the war....

I'm actually looking forward to it. As I said, it's war as far as I'm concerned..

Bring it on :twisted:

I am not sure if I was ever sane, I certainly ain't normal! Mind you, I believe the same could be said for a fair percentage of the forum members!

Being sane and normal is not fun.

I completely agree Davie :-D

Xantia passed the MOT :-D with one advisory "Offside front Anti-Roll bar has slight play in a ball joint"

Not something to worry about at the moment for what they cost I will order a pair and both can be fitted.

Can't be no 2 that's cheap. I just sold my one last year and it cost me the best part of 40 grand. Something seriously wrong, 40 k for 6 yrs of knowing her. And now I'm skint and she got a new banker oops man!
