    Thanks Michael it's has been difficult but the car is basically garaged permanently until fixed and we're hoping to buy a different car in the mean time. I'm not blaming mace at all im positive it's probably an error or missread step I have made. I'll try and call someone from your team when I get time as I work a lot during the week.

    Not a lot, and yet it still lasted over 300k. Up until the last couple of days it still ran smooth and idled normal, though it had been losing power for a while. The idle only got rough after I put some engine cleaner through it, WAY TOO LITTLE TOO LATE I'm afraid.

    I think the engine cleaner did more harm than good. All it did was loosen up the crap and allow to circulate and block oil passages etc, there was just too much of it to remove. Luckily it only lasted a week after the engine cleaner or I think it would have ended up with a lot more damage.
