My F#$%ING Car Caught Fire Tonight

Yes you read it right my car decided to catch fire under the bonnet tonight for no obvious reason.

I will update the reason once i can look at it in daylight but from looking at it with a neon it looks like it's melted the volateg reg, both power steering hoses and most of the battery wiring to the inside of the car.

Me not very happy.

Nudge

Sorry to hear, hope its easy fixed.

There is a lesson to be learnt though..... Neons don't belong on cars

Re: My F#$%ING Car Caught Fire Tonight

this happened to me in the old toyota super saloon when we had it. i was turning the roundabout near home when half way through all this steam (thats what i thought it was at that time) started pissing out the gaps in the bonnet. pulled over thinking that i had done the radiator, popped the bonnet and there it was....FIRE!! not good. the power steering hose let go all over the exhaust manifold and went up. got it put out and there was some melted leads and wires but the car is still on the road even now. we sold it after that but the guy knew what had happened.
