Meriva Wife of Windsor
My Meriva (petrol) has been sitting under snow and ice for nearly a month, whilst I have been in hospital. I can't drive until February 4th. Should I start it and let the engine run, or wait for my son to drive it round in a week's time?

I have a FIAT 500 1.3 Multijet Diesel. About two weeks ago I had the problem, exactly as described in your column. I towed the car to the FIAT dealership...
I bought a BMW 320dSE Touring in just over 2 years ago. The stop/start always worked well until recently. The car has been back to the dealership 3 times...
