i was just driving down the motorway and looked at the temperture gauge it wa on red then as i came off the motorway the gauge went back to in the middle i got to tesco and turned it off. turned it back on and would only start when i gave it some revs. so i though i better get home so was on way back home down motorway and lorry pulled out so took foot off accelerator and it konked out so i started her back up again with revs and she just started. then as coming off motorway had to stop at lights and it was just reveing itself or if wasnt doing that then it would just cut out. i have just managed to get it home but making a really wierd noise under bonnet any suggestions what may be up with it?

Check your coolant level mate :S

Could be a number of things including head gasket failure but all will become clear when you check if firstly you have any coolant and if its clean and secondly if there is a white residue under your oil cap which is the coolnat in the oil.

Best to get it to a garage and get it checked out mate :)

Sounds like the head gasket, very similar to what happend to my first engine. I would stop driving it around and get it checked just to be on the safe side. Hope its not to bad mate hopefully the head gasket wont be the fault!
