No,,that is a very thoughtful post, prevention is far cheaper than cure

Thanks everyone, and I'm in Overton about 8 miles west of Basingstoke.

What's this about a blocker plug thingy then?

My last 4 cars have been British (2 MGs and 2 Jaguars) and I have now run out of organs to sell for repair bills.

On the engines on these cars,,the camshaft connection in the wiring harness can leak oil into the harness causing expensive damage,,so you just fit a blocker and it cannot happen

I suppose I am going to have to be really cheeky now and ask the question - how, where, and where do I get a blocker??

:D
