    Intermittent limp mode is sending me insane!

    We did change that then it threw a hissy fit and wouldn’t start at all with the solid red light came on.... Wondering if the loom above gearbox has a half broken wire in it. Those lambda wires seemed to be ok, got resistance checked to and from ecu plug , and load tested wiring to the plug...

    Austin’s Clio dci 100 Initiale

    bottom end knocks on these sound like top end knocks. if Chris pulled the sump and took the main caps off one of them will have span , or rod bearing. injector knock will have it chucking smoke out the exhaust as it’ll be overfuelling. Cam rattle doesn’t sound anywhere near as bad. id also...

    Theses don’t run lifters. They’re solid buckets ( set clearance buckets non shimmed ) that oil looks abit weird. If it still sounds s**t , it’s probably either finally spat a big end, or somethings adrift. if You was closer I would of had a look at it for you.

    Faulty clutch I’d say. Only other time I’ve had that is an Astra 1.6 with thrust washers gone on the crank, rattled until clutch pressed lol. Be something simple. altho second video doesn’t look good ....

    Abs pump wiring runs across chassis leg behind gearbox mount cradle. Reverse light switch runs over end of box under the mount ( should be self explanatory ) and engine loom bolts to the gearbox mount cradle at given points with 8mm/10mm bolts

    Alfa 159 2.4 JTDM Sportwagon TI

    Get it welded then , the bungs that you glue in ain’t really 100% reliable. welded , face skimmed and new inlet gasket will have it sealed a treat.

    Alfa 159 2.4 JTDM Sportwagon TI

    If I can throw my two pence in, DONT do a swirl flap delete. Done plenty of them at work aswell as owning a few 1.9cdtis ( same s**t less 1 cylinder ) and they loose low down torque and abit of fuel economy. Fit the EGR restrictor plate from fiat ( has 4 holes in it as a pose to a full open...
