SORTED, the problem has caused me some serious extra work ie replace headgasket (have the head tested for bent valves, than fully no bent valves) water pump, new timing belt +tensioner and new cam pulley etc from broken fan belt jumping and going into cambelt area and making belt jump 90 degrees
the problem was the alternator, we put a multimeter on battery terminals an started car , then watched the waveforms,then lifted loosened positive terminal from battery with engine still running with my old alternator the volatge was reading ac/dc (which is very abnormal) the wave from was very sharp up and down and the fan belt was jumping and slapping , replaced the alternator and wave form changed to dc ( with waveform going downwards ) and thank fully thsi saga has come to an end
Currently in rudey's garage:
2003 mk4 Espace 1.9dci
