    I've momentarily over revved the engine by mistake and the car stopped running following a 'check injection' message. It won't start. I will now have the car towed to Manchester. I need the car back on the road Asap, can you please recommend a specialist? Many thanks.

    Thanks guys. I've got the car to Manchester to my mate's place. I'll try resetting the ECU just in case it's a simple problem, unlikely but worth trying... Failing that I'll contact Trevor.

    How / why do you think you 'momentarily over revved the engine' ? Most of these things spend their life bouncing off (Or running extremely close to) the limiter in every gear.....

    Good luck.

    It will have maybe revved over the limiter, but in theory it shouldn’t have damaged anything as I’m guessing you realised in a split second unless you went from 6th to first at 120?
