Just had one of those "why me, why now!"? calls from the garage...
I have a 2.5TDI A4 Avant. The car wouldn't start yesterday for my wife.
She called the AA who said it was the crank sensor needed replacing.
A quick look on here and my spirits lifted - that one sounds like a relatively cheap and easy fix.
Car was trailered to the garage today.
They just called to tell me that in fact the fuel injection pump has failed.
They are quoting ~@£1700+VAT for a replacement, plus 4 hours labour to fix.
Its an 03 plate, 115k miles... If fixing the car is that kind of cost it's questionable whether it's worth keeping it.
Can anyone help me weigh up my options? Right now I'm so upset that I can't focus!
Cheers in advance.
