Ht lead failed last week so replaced with genuine part, still wasn’t right so plugged it into a snapon reader which showed no faults (also no lights on dash) but the pre cat o2 sensor was going wild ranging from 50 to 750 whereas the postcat was only varying by ten points. Changed o2 sensor and...
Have a reconditioned gearbox in the garage ready to go in but was holding back because i’d like to know what everyone’s experiences are with lightened flywheels? To me it makes sense to do it while everything’s out.
Where’s the best place to pick one up? Not overly interested in...
After buying my second 182 2 and a bit years ago i thought i’d finally start a project thread.
My first 182 was a BG FF with 34k purchased back in 2015. Loved it but had to sell up when I went to uni.
Current car is a Titanium 182 with 104k been a journey to say the least.
Purchased a set of KTR coilovers and i’ll be looking to change my top mounts at the same time (makes sense really). Question is do I go for solid top mounts or another variant?
Driving is purely road and no track work.
Thoughts/recommendations welcome! ?
Had a run out this today with the Mrs as we both enjoyed it when we went with Worcester car club a few months ago.
Some great stuff there would highly recommend the drive out.
Funnily enough also met a previous owner of my car who followed me in in his EP3. - Small world.
Coasting home tonight had a little spirited run for approx 30 seconds. Car develops a nasty rattle i think it’s the bottom end.
Oil changed last week belts done 4,000 miles ago. - i noticed when i started pulling it apart that ignition leads 1 & 4 were the wrong way round, could...
My delightful 30mile round trip to work is being ruined by a heatshield rattle - the rear by the silencer and fuel tank - can i take this off? Would heat wrap be adequate to stop the car from exploding? Do i even need to wrap it? - miltek fitted
lights were coming on when driving - just changed all discs and pad front and back the lights are still coming on? Thoughts?
Hesitation when pulling away my exhaust is leaking is this the problem? Just changed for new ht leads coil pack and injectors still doing it lol
Put it off long enough i’m getting twitchy as its sounding more and more like a diesel!
Any reccomendations for a place to buy the kit? Does the water pump need doing at the same time?
Have been quoted £200 by a mechanic at my brothers work to get it done. - he has done two or three 1*2’s...
Recently replaced the coil pack and ht leads with a red magnacor set and used oem coil pack that I got from a member on here.
Instantly got what i guess is a misfire? the car hesitates under load at low revs, exhaust is popping on downshifts which it didnt before.. it does need welding but...
Intermittant Stop/handbrake light when pushing on the twistys/sliproads ect. Car feels like it’s skipping/slipping. Abs ring? Brakes will need doing eventually but are fine at the moment - worth just doing the rings or just get the whole job done?
Also are braided lines worth...
So I follow this YouTuber Seen Through Glass (I know). He recently announced that he was going to be giving away a Trophy as part of a collaboration with GumTree. Well I didn't win but here's the video in case any of you are interested.
Going on a long drive down south next week and theres a few niggles with the new 182 that i'd like to sort out this weekend!
1) Abs, Traction control & Service light intermittly coming on. - Goes off when car is turned off (Abs ring?)
2) tyres are shot and need replacing -...
Bought my 2nd 182 last weekend belts done about 20k ago ect good service history. I wanted to change the oil for piece of mind so bought Elf 5-40. Just changed the oil but couldnt get the filter off with the tool that I have (i know ) Going to my brother's garage Monday as he has a...
While dreaming of owning another sport I stumbled across this one.. thoughts?
After selling my 182 before I left for uni in September (parking was £500 a term!).
i'm considering a high milage 172 for the 5 mile commute into work for the summer, budget would only be about a grand, but i've got the bug again, thoughts?
After installing the 98ron map onto my 1*2 is there any need keeping the tuner? Even if i uninstalled the map the ecu is still locked to the device if i'm correct and is therefore traceable if someone could be bothered to look hard enough? Only asking as its potentially a bit of funding thats...
