Well the bugger is hopefully fixed for good this time due to a suspect immobiliser. Never thought id own another vehicle where I feared it would break down more than the R.
Enjoyed getting it muddy today to retrieve one of my trailers off my field Smile

Well after getting fed up trying to trace wires around under the dash for power etc I gave in and called an auto electrician to come out and test the alarm/immobiliser. I told him what had been happening and he didn't think it would be the immobiliser as apparently they don't normally cut out during use; they normally just fail and vehicle wont start?
Typically when he arrived it started but luckily cut out after a minute or so. He traced the immobiliser and wiring, tested it and showed me it wasn't put out voltage even when disarmed. He has disconnected the immobiliser from the truck but left it in as its parts of the alarm and I have used it several times without any issue so i'm hoping he's hit the nail on the head. It cost me £50 but think that's nothing as I was expecting it to cost more to fix.

Well I wondered how long it would be before another fault rears it ugly head. Been running like a dream over winter, went out to it today, started after a few cranks and it cuts out immediately with a big puff of stinky white smoke. Just going through my head what to check tomorrow. I wonder if its a dodgy injector as the smoke stinks of fuel? Going to check fuses to make sure its not popped a fuse the controls the fuel solenoid.
Better get the pulsar battery charged so I can use that again Rolling Eyes

You sure its not where its just sat there ..... a diesel fitter told me i dont know how true it is but i was trying to get my bosses digger going wich sits there for months at a time i couldnt get it going it fired up then kept cutting out so wasnt idling he told me to shake the fuel up so drained out the fuel into a can then shook it up put it back in and it started first time ..he said it was something to do with the oil seperating or something like i said i dont really know if he was correct in hes theory but it worked ....

Well I used it last weekend to pop out and it got filled up with fresh diesel but in fairness I haven't got round to changing the fuel filter yet so im wondering if there could be water at the bottom that it maybe drawing up? Will give it a lookover shortly and hopefully find the cause...

Well im leaning towards either a small campervan or a partially converted van as I would love to just go away at a moments notice and not have to worry where I stop. As my brother and wife are in the veedub scene im thinking about getting a t4 transporter but still undecided.

Yeah the Scooby lump is quite popular for going into various vw stuff. A friend of my brothers put a beetle shell on a modified Scooby floor plan so he could keep the 4wd.
