Replaced the steering rack three weeks ago and now car has broken down, again. Engine suddenly cut out, didn't hear any bang or backfire, and couldn't re-start. It's definitely not a problem with the electrics/battery as I've already had problems in that area and can tell when trying to start it that it's not a 'power' related problem.
Considerable leaking coming from exhaust at the point when engine cut out as I left quite a trail behind me.
Leaking from engine bay also which smelled strongly of petrol.
I know the exhaust was showing signs of wear and tear and I was going to get it patched when I get paid next week - of course, nothing goes wrong when you happen to be flush!
Any idea what the problem might be?? Getting the impression from other sources that it might by the engine coil?
