Currently broken down on the M6, car was running fine then slowly started dieing. It gradually lost power and slowed to to an almost stop. I managed to limp it to an emergency lane and turned it off.

The coolant tank is red hot. I waiting 5 mins then started it up. It started no problem then I set off and drove as normal. Literally 2 minutes it did the same thing and I managed to limp it to the turn off at J18. Tried starting it which it did but idles really rough and dies shortly after.

Gutted as I've only had it a few weeks. Really don't understand what it could be. Any ideas?

Cheers

Strange because I just started it after 30 mins and its completely normal. Not risking driving it because it will prob do the same and I'm in a layby at the moment.

Pressed VCM and its coming up with fuel fail 12 error.

Seems like it's fine when cold but misfiring when hot.
