    My mate who has a body shop only asked for a grill, he reckons he can repair the bonnet. It’s how my luck runs at the moment, spend £600 on some new tyres and why not throw another few hundred at an unexpected bill. Still not as bad as the mrs keeping on about it.

    @Rob Cowell I have started to experience this issue with my 2005 120. Read the codes and I get the P0093 error code. Has yours repeated this issue since the change of the filter?

    Doing some research brings up a variety of opinions and reasons. Typically my 120 if not left to idle for a few mins before driving off it will go into limp mode, especially on colder mornings. Mrs seems to also think this happens more frequently when the fuel in the tank is low. Some suggestions seem to indicate that cheap diesel could be the culprit, so at next fill I will change away from supermarket cheap as (I have always used this from new, now at 117k), to having to do something with the SCV and replacing injectors.

    Could also be dirt in the tank or a air in the fuel system.

    I serviced it recently with new oil, air and fuel filters, and oil, bit it still does it.

    Any thoughts from anyone?

    Hi Tony

    When I changed my fuel filter a lump of what I can only describe as black jelly came out. I never had the problem after that.

    SCVs seem to cause something similar although I've never touched mine. Did change my injectors at about 150K miles. But that was about 10K miles after the cut-out incidents.

    Thanks Rob. I will try the easy bits first, starting with better quality fuel, and I will also check the tank for diesel bug. Last time Trevor serviced it for me he mentioned that there was some evidence of this in the fuel filter, so I do think my tank needs to be cleaned... Don't relish that job at all.

    I know it means nothing, but I've had my tank out a couple of times and the filter in there has been squeaky clean. I don't know if it being a plastic tank helps. Also not terrible to take out, other than every bolt was very stiff. Replaced all those with stainless. The hoseclips for the filler pipe are likely to be interesting too.

    Thanks Rob, I'll initially have a look through the top first, not too keen to drop the tank...

    Had the black Collie in the workshop today for a couple of niggly faults. The first was a wind whistle next to my ear which was cured by pulling the window guide back up its channel so there wasn't a gap. The other niggle was that especially on a cold morning the reader on the ignition barrel wouldn't recognise the transponder in the key and it wouldn't start without a wiggle of the key ( which could take up to 5 mins).
    This was cured by taking off the trim round the lock and pushing the connector home ( with a satisfying click) on the back of the reader. It must have just been making contact when it was warm but not when cold.
    had another go at the rattling dash too, is it a Collie thing?
