New week New issue

Came out to my car break time at work today,puddle underneath. drove home home from work (slowly as the old giffa in a micra insisted on 30 in a 60 zone) got to my village and engine temp needle heads for the red.
So again the intrepid Triton motorsport are coming out to look at it.
Ive decided if i have to make that phone call again to them it will be to put it back to standard and return my money.

2K SHOULD MAKE A FAST RELIABLE WRX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



rant over

Hopefully it will be ok now - might be worth while going round and lookin for more loose stuff and tightening anything up yourself

Your probably right, it's just bad luck I think, the banjo clip hadn't been moved since the car was made and through temp and time become seized and weak and just didn't like being loosened and retightened
