Loopy the 1.4

Recommended Posts

So after waiting an hour and a half in the cold for recovery, im finally home. My cul-de-sac is rather narrow, so the guy placed her at the entrance to it, and let me limp back into a parking space, since it was in limp mode. Started her up; no EPC light and running smooth again. 

How much are we talking to get an autoelectrician to have a look at the entire loom...?

Changed the thermostat and coolant temperature sensor today. was surprised to find i didnt have a thermostat at all! which would explain the lack of temperature. ran perfectly fine up until i wanted to drive her to Halfords, and then it put itself in limp mode again and the EPC light was on. same thing as before with the throttle body.

Well, it is time to say goodbye to Loopy after 2 years of ups and downs. I can already feel the regret seeping in.

She's been great while she lasted, but she had finally given up and I didn't want to pool more money into her so I decided to cut my losses and move on. 

 

There is a slot for a GTi in my future for sure though..! ;)
