Mr Greg, Thank you for your reply to may trouble, I do not have the engine light on when I start are when I am running. Although in the past when I have done any distance running at speeds up to 70 mph it as come on, sometimes on the outward trip or on th return, My speeds are always on the low side, and not often get into top gear. I am 81 and go to the shops twice a week, Wednesday/Friday and my Rifle Club on Saturdays. The longest trips I make are Scarborough and Castle Hill hospital at Cottingham East Yorkshire, my self I live in Bridlington East yorkshire. This is the only further information I can send you. Hope it is of some use,
Yours truly XXXXX XXXXX S.................
Mr Greg, The last service was December 2012 complete oil/oil filter/air cleaner and what ever else they do on the big service, it also had the MOT at the same time.
Regards XXXXX XXXXX timming belt, it was replaced when it reached the milage stated in the book. The speedo reading is now 063504. Oh yes the spark plugs was changed in August and the correct Mitsubishi plugs was used, VERY EXSPENSIVE are they not.
I do hope this is of some use to you.
Yours truly, XXXXX XXXXX S.............
Mr Greg, Thank you for your reply, I will go to my garage with these remarks and have them do all you have recomended.

Mr Greg, Jim here at Bridlington East Yorkshire. I have followed up on the information you sent me, went to my garage yesterday, where the machanic pluged a hand held machine in under the dash. He got a reading, it read, intermitant missfire, code P 0300, he looked in the book and it say's heating switch on the engine. Looking under the air cleaner there were 2 one a single conector, and one with a double conector.
The single one had green corrosion on it, so he cleaned it with a wire brush, both male and female, and asked me to try it.
Later in the afternoon it had not made any differance, I asked him if he would come on Saterday to my Rifle Club at 4-00 pm, and he as agreed, so hopefully he will witness it for himself.
I will be away at my club untill early evening so I will get back to you on Sunday. Thank you.
My best regards
Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. even though you said you had the service done in December 2012 i would have these parts checked again ,But if you had the problem before the service i would look in the fuel delivery side and injectors .
Also just going thought my head you should have the catalytic converter checked when this gets bad will set a P0300 code .
Vacuum leaks ,
Well Mr Jim have this done Sir and then let me know what you find .
Kindest regards Greg
Plugs and leads or coil boots are the main cause of this problem
Fuel pressure should be checked, as the fuel injectors, if plugs wires are ok try a good expensive fuel injection cleaner with a tank of fuel .
Mr Greg/Sir, I will get on to this ASAP, when my garage can fit me in, this however may take a week are more, but I will keep you informed when things are being done. Thank you.
My very best regards.
Mr Jim St............
Good afternoon Mr Greg,
Please excuse an old man for not understanding what to do next, you see my garage man who doe's all my repairs as been taken to Hospital, he is the owner of the business which leaves only the people he employs to open up. I was hoping to let you know, that what you advised me on in your last e-mail to me had fixed the trouble I have, but I can't .
I have just received your last e-mail and I think you want me to rate you. I was hoping to go to No 5 but I must go to No 4.
I will be very sorry to loose you at this stage but if there is any way I can contact you, when and if my motor is fixed I would very much like to do so.
I thank you with my "VERY BEST REGARDS".
Mr Greg, Sir,
Thank you for your understanding e-mail, it was the fact I thought you had to be paid, but I am very pleased that you can stay with me untill I know just what is to happen.
The truth is my motor car is in very good condition for its age and, being some what of an old relick myself at 81 yrs old, I just could not afford to change it.
So I promise to get back to you ASAP when I know what is to happen, as soon as my machanic is back at work, which I don't think will be very long, as he is a very keen man to be on the job.
Thank you again for your understanding.
My very very best regards
Mr Jim Ste............
PS. It is wonderful that you too are a Yorkshire man, may I ask which part.
Hi Mr Jim .Don't worry about automatic emails you get Just get back to me when you can .Originally from South Yorkshire ,Sheffield, Walkley. S6Rgds Greg
Dear Mr Greg,
I am sorry I have been a long time to get back to you, I went to see my garage man yesterday. His son is running the garage at the moment with the other staff, he told me it could be about 2 weeks before his father can get back to work. He is a very good machanic and has worked on my car before, so I showed him your reply to my last email and he is looking at my car it tomorrow FRIDAY.
Mr Greg, Sir, I have enjoyed all your e-mails, and if it comes out that it wants a lot of money spending on it, well I dont think I could afford it so I will have to run it while it lasts.
I was checking my bank statements today and found that I have had to pay another "£23-00 to Just Answer", which they took out of my bank on the 19 Feb 2013.
So I feel I must give you a 5 rating for all you have done,I am very sorry that I have to end before I could let you know what the end will be.
My very best regards for the future.
Mr Jim Stephenson.
Nice to know you come from Sheffield, I have had some very goods friend from your town, and wonderful memories.
