No damage, I saw him coming and took evasive action, I let him have a "suitable conversation" with one of Lancashire's finest who happened to be in an unmarked vehicle, two car behind me and saw the whole thing......... someone times there is a God........

Whenever I have a stressful day I have a Radox bath, muscle soak (blue box). It helps to unknot the muscles and lets you get a decent night sleep, regardless of the preceding day (well, it works for me). You can get it at Poundland.

Thank goodness for your reflexes and alertness. I hope to see this on a 'Police, Camera, Action' type program.

Interesting you say that, the C6 is fitted with a traffic camera, I will review the footage tomorrow...

My Mum wants a traffic camera for Christmas. I am looking for one with G sensing, to snapshot if there is an impact. Which one have you got?

I have two different ones, this one is quite good http://shop.roadhawk.co.uk/roadhawk-dc-2-dash-cam" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; but I also have this one http://shop.roadhawk.co.uk/roadhawk-rh-2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; this last one also has a camera recording inside the car, plus it has infrared.

I can do you a couple of screen shots and video tomorrow if you want.....

I got mine from eBay, I looked at second hand ones, I think the RH2 was around £130 I can't remember about the DC2

Well, I've had a brainwave, yes I know it's dangerous, but I'm going to plug the Peugeot Planet into the Coupe later and take some screen shots, hopefully, that will give us some help on Monday.

I don't plan on resetting anything just having a look to see what, if anything it says

If it's missing on Petrol all the time as well as LPG my guess is it might have dropped a coil. They're a fairly common occurrence on the ES9J4S engine, unlike the earlier engine they have one coil per cylinder and they're reasonable prone to failure. They're about £30 each for a genuine one. Front cylinders take about 10 minutes to change, rear ones about 30 minutes as the inlet has to come off.

Peugeot Planet will show a misfire on a particular cylinder when the coil dies.

We've done all 6 of them over time on the 406 Coupe.

I'd recommend the Blackvue as it has all the sensors in and auto saves the recordings from any severe jolts plus you can alter its sensitivity so that it can take into account swerves and such like :) also if wired in correctly it will go into park mode and only record when there is motion in front of it. Good for car parks and when left parked overnight and doesn't have too much of a battery drain :)

Bloody heck Steve, you have had a rough old day... :( :evil:

I trust all very soon sorts itself out and starts going right for you again...

I hope the beers you were going to have did the trick...

I have Jim, but some positive news thanks to Mr H, it looks like the coil pack has given up on number 6, so I'm going to replace the back 3 on Monday

Excellent and I see that's not the only potential good news Mr. H has offered this evening :-D

:rofl2:

I do me best!

At least if you do all 3 on the back and keep the ones from cylinders 4 and 5 you can swap them with the front in 10 minutes if you ever need to as it's literally just pull the engine cover off and 1 x 10mm bolt to undo to change them!

Keep one or two spare in the boot and a Halfords 1/4" socket set and you're good to go! Road side repairs are front bank coil packs!
