Drove my a3 1.6 to college this morning, it started fine evrything was normal, i came back after my lesson about an hour and a half later and it just wouldnt start done all the simple checks oil was fine.. battery was fine.. made my mechanic listen to it over the phone he said it could be the crank shaft, Anyway i called the AA who took over 2 HOURS coming.. he done a few checks and decided there was a problem with the feul pump.. is this a common problem? anyone else had problems with this..? i wanted to get towed to my garage in luton they said there system has been down so recovery would be a FURTHER 5 HOURS! since then i'v walked home from college in the arctic conditions wearing my 3 quarter length shorts and a jumper as i was supposed to go straight to my football coaching job.. im still waiting for them to call me for recovery..
what if i was too far away from home..? it was still a 30 min walk.
