The performance of my engine fell and it was only after I thought "Oh f-it, I don't trust the garage and I will go over everything myself" the engine then ran super fine, no lumpy tick-over, MPG shot up and was greater than the manufactures figures etc. I think my engine would run fine on shoe polish.
    I would very much love to fix the car myself like you do but I lack necessary knowledge and practical expertise. Looking into "Diploma in Transport Maintenance IMI VRQ L1" part-time. I am 50+, Happy to learn something other than IT but most of the courses are aimed for 16-19 age group. Not sure if it is suitable for me :-) or where to find one.
