Broke down on the North Circular near Barking on Friday. Lost power, foot on the accelerator just cut the revs so I drifted into the inside lane and parked up by the barrier. Called the emergency services and waited for the tow truck. I would have stayed there as it was cold and wet but the sight of a number of drivers nearly driving straight into me at high speed made me a bit nervous. Didnt fancy losing the beast so I got out and walked about 50 meters behing the car and spent the next hour and a half waving at traffic to give them earlier warning. Only one or two near pile ups. Flat bed eventually arrived and took me and the beast to Bexleys. Turns out the fuel pump had seized up. I had noticed some hesitancy in first gear as well as erratic idel around 3k and a bad flat spot between 4500 and 5000 rpm. Picked up the beast yesterday and am surprised what a big difference the new fuel pump has made - definitely got the vavavoom back. More open heart surgery for the wallet though.
