ok, update, great mechanic came over, found it was lots of faults, mainly, the main fuse box in car was burnt and dripping plastic :-o so I got to rewire the whole dang thing!! then it was smaller things like idle control unit, maf sensor, aux belt tensioner rattling, a bad repair on upper sump housing(lots of silicone lol) and a bad coolant temp sensor. so I have all ready ordered all the parts, well apart from belt tensioner, cant seam to find one under 100 quid lol. so there we go, I can see light again now, just shows how bad the first garage I taken it too, as they found none of these main problems, unless the computer tells them, they dont know, more fitters than mechanics. feeling more optimistic now, I want to get the vinyl on the car asap so it looks the business. EDIT - Oh and those extra plugs I found on the head loom were for either a 4x4 or auto box connection, so I am not using the right loom for this car.
