Re: Mk1 92 1.6 Intermittent Not Starting

Do you have a spare air flow meter to swap in. I've got a niggle in the back of my mind telling me they need to be good or they can cut fuel.
I could be wrong though but worth swapping in.

Re: Pete's MK 2/2.5 heater blower is not working( no speeds)

Ford and Vauxhall 9 times out of ten it the rheostat/resistor. But high speed will always work as it bypasses the resistor.
Renaults often melt the wires up in the dash next to the motor.

Re: Painting Engine Alloy bits

Depends on how good a finish you want I guess but heat should not be a problem with most paints. These are simple smooth hamerite from an aerosol. http://i1291.photobucket.com/albums/b554/nedski2/supercharging/20141124_165025_zps66843d1b.jpg http://i1291.photobucket.com/albums/b554/nedski2/anything%...

Re: Misfire 1.8 mk1

Not really as its actually past your engine and on its way down the exhaust.
I just fitted some brand new NJK plugs to go to the rolling road. Turns out one was causing a slight missifire, swapped some old ones back in and perfect.

We went through this about a year ago with the problem of them sticking and stressing the wishbones until they break. Probably the worst mod anyone can do !

Re: Superpro polybush dilemma

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO don't do it. Unless you buy the best.
I track my car and I still want to go back to rubber.

PS if anyone has a full set of standard wishbones i'm still after a set.

Any Idea how much the IL set is or autolinks rubber set ? Might be the way to go for me.

That about had it's day mate with those figures.
I would think most garages would charge you around £400 in labour or more. If your going to buy one then try and find one thats fairly oil free as gaskets and seals can soon cost you some pennies.

Re: Rough idle after track day - Camshaft position sensor?

When you say rough idle, is it actually miss firing or just a low idle making it lumpy. Have you checked the air ducting for leaks and all vac pipes etc. If its drawing in un metered air that will give you a rough idle. If you spray brake cleaner or carb cleaner around manifold gasket, pipes, etc an...
