Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson – Classic Words

Clarksonism Classics

Jeremy Clarkson is a host for Britain’s Top Gear T.V. show, and is well known for his extremely candid reviews of cars and assorted other flotsam and jetsam. He’s rude, very clever, and very amusing. Here are a few fine examples of Clarksonism Classics to enjoy! Hehe!

1. “I’m sorry, but having a DB9 on the drive and not driving it is a bit like having Keira Knightley in your bed and sleeping on the couch.”

2. Illustrating the lack of power of a Boxster: “It couldn’t pull a greased stick out of a pig’s bottom.”

3. On the Vauxhall Vectra VXR: “there is a word to describe this car. It begins with ‘s’ and ends with a ‘t’ and it isn’t soot.”

4. “The Suzuki Wagon R should be avoided like unprotected sex with an Ethiopian transvestite.”

5. “The air conditioning in a Lambo used to be an asthmatic sitting in the dashboard blowing at you through a straw.”

6. “Koenigsegg are saying that the CCX is more comfortable. More comfortable than what… BEING STABBED?”

7. “This is the Renault Espace, probably the best of the people carriers. Not that that’s much to shout about. That’s like saying “Ooh good I’ve got syphilis, the BEST of the sexually transmitted diseases’.”

Jaguar Trouble Codes

Question: I have a 2002 jaguar s type, 4.0 L with the codes 705 and 125 coming up…what does this mean?

Answer:

P0125 – Insufficient Coolant Temperature for Closed Loop Fuel Control
P0705 – Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction (PRNDL Input)

These codes are generic OBDII codes from the following site…

I would guess from the first code your coolant sensor is shot, or the
wiring is bad to the sensor.  The second one related to the
transmission shifter location, which the sensor may be in the
transmission or the console where the shifter is.  I don’t have a
Jaguar manual handy to tell you specifics.  Alldata repair manuals are
an excellent source for this kind of specific info.
