    Hi, When I press my brake pedal sometimes maybe twice every 10 times I get a crunchy sound(and you can feel it I'm sure) which lasts for a second or so and then the break bites and returns to normal. Feels like the ABS kicking in but shouldn't be as I'm not breaking hard. It's a little...

    This started around 2 months ago, pulling into a fuel station and filling up - usually £20-30 of fuel, never run it much into the red if i can avoid it. and on restart after a short stop long enough to fill up it starts and then dies and doesn't want to run for a few seconds, it will stall...

I have a 1994 9000 CDS 2.0 ltr petrol turbo (non-intercooler) which broke down last August - the problem appeared to be a loss of power to the fuel...
