Bone Idle 306 - will1
My pug 306 1.4 S reg, won't start without throttle and stalls every two minutes when idleing.

It had a recent 60,000 main dealer service

It has had a new stepper motor and stills idles badly and stalls.

The dealer say "the ignition coil has failed, resulting in the failure of the ECU" and qouted £850 to repair it

Can a coil result in the damage of the ECU?

Is £850 reasonable or can it be done DIY?

Am I entitled for money back £140 for the replaced stepper motor as it has not solved the problem?

Thanks for any help in advance!

I think you are having the wool pulled over your eyes!!! An ECU either works or does not. I recommend a second opinion. If you have paid to have this problem fixed and its still there, then ask for a refund. £850 is extortionate for an ECU even if its not working. You can probably get an exchange unit through Partco and the cost will be considerably less.

Is it running on all four cylinders, could simply be a plug or ignition lead. Some modern "diags" that just check the computer readings may not spot this simple old-fashioned fault. Was a faulty plug fitted at the service?
