If its a derv, I'm sure you said it was, Prepare for a big bill. Diesel pumps are HUGELY expensive compared to petrol pumps due to the pressure needed.

Sounds odd no warning though, Was it low on fuel? Did the turbo sound ok before it went?

Could be any part of the electrics but its HUGELY unlikely that any cooling system work has done this.

I had MASSIVE problems with my startng last summer, Couldnt work out why......

.... After MANY checks I realised. I had filled up at Asda.

ASDA Diesel and my car do NOT get on. 15 pre-heats at least! THen ran like a pig and crap MPG!

How much fuel was in her? ITs not un-common for the digi fuel gauges to mis-read somewhat.
