Hello again Malcolm -

I have switched us out of the chat session as I was not receiving any reply from you - we are now in the QA system..

Please just check above - scroll up - you will see I asked about the speed of the engine when you crank it... can you let me know on that...?

Also - when the vehicle was driving - did you experience a loss of power / juddering / smoke from the exhaust etc?

no just lack of power then the engine died

Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
Ok..

Thank you for that ... Have you checked your receipt...to check if you did indeed put diesel in - not petrol?? It is very easily done - so while this may seem obvious - please do check that first - and let me know..

Rgds, MIKE.................................


Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes that was my first reaction to check and it was diesel that I had filled up. I travelled about 30 mile before the engine cut out, before the jeep cut out I trying to overtake another car so I was accelerating when the engine died.

Hello again..

As you have travelled so far I doubt it would be mis fuelled then..

Do you have the ability / tools to work on the engine Malcolm - to check for the faults if \i direct you ?
