Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Looking from street level the valley looks quite intact and there's still crap in the gutter so it's definitely an attempted scam.

I'll put an alert out on the local nextdoor site.

The birds regularly clear out any crap in my gutters. If you haven't got a problem, I'd leave it (and them).

Already bled them, radiators upstairs get reasonably warm but downstairs stone cold, if i turn the thermostat up to +30c in the hall it should fire the boiler into life but it doesn't. I know the boiler is OK as it heats the hot water just fine.

Got a plumber coming on 10th Nov to service it so hopefully they will find the issue.

At a guess, your thermostat is bust, and convection alone is carrying a little heat to the upstairs rads while the boiler is working to heat your hot water.

However your friendly neighbourhood plumber will diagnose and sort it pretty quickly I’d have thought.

Did you say that with one hand on your hip, the other on your chin, sucking in air through your teeth whilst slowly shaking your head?

Garage mechanics have this off to a tee.

Incorrect and overuse of the words "Emergency" & "Crisis".

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

I’ve had the BMW for just over a year and it’s been fantastic, no problems at all. The previous owner was a mechanic so he looked after it really well and it shows.

Over the past month or two the engine coolant warning light has been randomly coming on for a minute or so then going off. I had the car serviced in March and the coolant level has remained the same so I can’t see that being the problem. The car still runs perfectly well yet the warning light comes on now and then, sometimes every day, sometimes not for weeks.

So I took it in to the garage yesterday and despite them taking 2 hours to tinker about they can’t find what’s causing it.

That in itself isn’t my moan, my main gripe is being charged £60 to be told “we don’t know….”

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Ah, the good old fashioned intermittent fault. And when it does finally go kaput it will be the sensor monitoring the part, rather than the part itself, that’s broken.

Trade it in for a Ford model T. So much simpler …

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Can you get them as a convertible? If so I’m sold

Apparently they checked the sensor (which was hoping would be the problem, they cost about £6…) but it was responding ok.

And just the sort of worry to have while I drive to Leeds and/or Leicester….

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Had the 'engine management light' on in my Avensis for 3 years. Checked at garage when it first appeared and nothing wrong (glitch somewhere? ) so they cleared it, said if it comes back we'll look further . . . ££££ . .

It came back on 2 months before it's MOT . . I reset it . . flew through the MOT (emissions etc) and after that I just kept resetting it occasionally.

There were absolutely zero engine problems in those 3 years . . apart from a new starter motor . . bloody modern cars eh
