Boris the Landrover – his crank sensor makes no sense

Crank Sensor didn’t fix anything šŸ™

However, on my life mission of looking on the bright side, it did work for nearly eight weeks straight. Before refusing to start while parked outside a client office in San Francisco, which is only really a minor embarrassment. I suppose it could have happened half way across the golden gate bridge which would have been far more excruciating.

On the plus side Boris did manage to drive up the hill where I got a good view of the Golden Gate Bridge

That is a world record for this dodgy Landrover LR3.

But it seems the ghost that used to haunt the engine has tracked me down again.

So, I’m typing this from my hotel room.. with a rental car parked outside once again. The most annoying thing is that when I go into the office tomorrow morning I can guarantee the car will start first time.

UPDATE: the bloody thing did run perfectly the next morning. At time of typing this update it has also been two weeks of error free starting. Aaaaargh

*sigh*
