    That's really kind, thanks, but worse scenario our breakdown cover will provide a car.
    Mechanic came out yesterday and initially said engine knackered but then thankfully changed to pipe broken or come loose but fetching us today and taking to a garage to put on ramp, so fingers crossed.
    We've just left Almeria area shame we didn't know you were there been good to have met up

    I do hope your ferry is from Bilbao or Santander as the channel ports are too far away from where you are - south of Madrid. :eek:

    That will be the Ford Transit engine, what year is your van, and what mileage abforfun.
    Hope not to costly for the repair.
