Can you get the codes read? They will help massively.

Have a look around the engine bay for any hoses/wires hanging around not connected. Any fluid leaks you can see. Just anything that stands out as not right.

Hi Scott, I took the cover off the engine and had a look around.
Nothing out of place that I could see,
there was a small cloth covered pipe that goes to a diaphragm on the right hand side of engine which looked perished so cut damaged part out and re fitted, it didn,t make a difference

What a kn*b.
I put £20 of petrol in it.
Have towed it to work and will drain tank and filter.
Will I need to do anything else?
