    172 "cough/backfire"

    Afternoon guys, Got a weird issue with my 172, I've only just started using it regularly again and it's obviously more annoying now. It basically has a random "cough", it doesnt always happen, and it is literally one cough, it can do this once in each gear a few times after 6k. No engine...

    Ph1 172 Coolant Leak

    Me again! Ph1 sprung a leak AGAIN today, 3rd time in 7 months It's coming from drivers side of the engine, are we thinking its going to be water pump? Or something else? Can't see anything else it could be that side. If so, how much of an arse is it to change a water pump on one of these? Cheers

    Ph1 172 Dog Bone Mount

    Hiiyaaa Just thought I'd share this with you as its something I've had difficulty with finding. Ph1 dogbones are obviously straight compared to the twisted ph2 ones, found many aftermarket mounts for a ph2 172, but nothing but the bush for a ph1. Until I came across this item on eBay. Seems good...

    Hi guys, Got an odd issue. Got a ph1 172, every now and then it won't let me use more than half throttle, not for long, only for a minute or 2, but if I go anymore than that it try's to kill itself. Anyone got any ideas? Cheers

    Central Locking Issues

    Not sure if i've put this in the right place, but hopefully i have! Basically, central locking doesn't work using the key fob or putting the key in the door. When you press the button on the fob a small red light flashes on the fob, but nothing happens. The car does lock everything using the...
