    The car industry and government led targets have screwed the industry Diesel has been pushed for years with incentives for the normal person to own, but hopping from euro 4,5 and 6 spec costs the manufacturer billions, and with the tech moving so fast diesels have become very unreliable ..they have become the headache nobody wants. Some manufacturers pulled out of making Diesel engines cars before brexit was thought of . Diesel now being the devils work, government and now pushing toward electric and hybrids.. There are many pros and cons, but for the manufacturers it’s an upheaval like never before in the trade and apart from the Asia. Manufacturers they have all got twitchy... Along with a huge problem the industry is having finding people to repair the cars once they are made .. For many years dealers and Indy’s have paid rubbish wages for a difficult job that takes years of training and costs thousands to tool up for , consequently nobody wants to do it.. This has led to a serious lack of techs ...every dealer and a lot of Indy’s are advertising constantly..I know of over a dozen locally that will take techs on but can’t find them.. It’s a perfect storm, and many in the industry, many will use brexit as a scapegoat as their collective knees knock at the next 5 years in the trade

    Hi Mark, Obviously a guess,but if this happened all in one go and the car is running rough i would suspect something like a jumped chain,or the tensioner has collapsed and allowed the valve timing has moved. I cant think why a fuel related problem would bring up all the vanos issues..
