Customer Question

hi matt, my car has cut out twice in recent months when changing gear,dashboard lights on,but no engine management light but started when jump started by releasing clutch when running and recently I started it on a cold start, went 150 yards, parked up for 10 minutes, then would not start. Just turned over without firing, until the battery went dead. Got greenflag out using a super battery eventually started to fire. Not a problem since. However I do have a dephaser pulley problem, quiet at start up but noisy tappet knock when engine is warm, are they related? Took it to two garages for fault finding, both showed engine coolant sensor fault and aircon sensor fault

Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

Has the coolant sensor been replaced or the aircon sensor? Both of these sensors can and will cause the issues that you are having and they are common.
