Yeah. Still happening. I know. I KNOW!
Well, lots has been going on personally so just have not had the effort to throw at this until lately.
One thing that did happen was the battery, out of the blue, all of a sudden. Just. Died.
Literally arrived at mums after a 15 minute drive...
Something new now :/
Over the past week or so, when I have started the car after it sitting overnight, all my counters have reset. Mpg, trip etc
To add to the oddness, my automatic headlights setting (i.e. come on with ignition) was also lost this morning and I had to do the...
Any thoughts guys?
just trying to think ahead of the game for the festive period and get something if I need it
I also had a "wheel bearingy" thought so will check that and will also compare the in-out play with the drivers side which does not make any noises when driving
Right, among many things in this car I have been chasing a rattle/knock for a very long time.
It occurs when going over rough surfaces (cobbles for example) or when the engine is in high gear at low speeds, or setting off. Only seems to be coming from the passenger side, low down.
FYI, in the absence of replies I just went to town on it
Ok, so I thought it was the little slider held in by the rivet that slides up and down the B pillar and this was damaged as expected. So replaced this.
However, the real culprit was the metal vertical part of the regulator that the...
I am leaning towards it not being the throttle body tbh as it has been doing it worse recently, it has a very distinct fuel or ignition feel.
I have been in cars off a cylinder which still pull albeit slowly and given that, this almost feels like its off 2.
am I right in saying that this is a...
This is still happening........lol
New plug leads didn't change a thing at all and granted, they were not genuine reno parts but they were at least NGK.
Once the car is up to speed (engine speed) there isn't a sniff of hesitation though. It's always low down and splutters like a pig...
So ehhhhhhh..............can anyone tell me what I am looking at here or is it just an old stripping match to see what has happened.
I thought it might have been the little plastic clip (riveted to the window) but that actually looks intact
Looking part numbers on the door window seal for both front doors on my clio and if anyone has ideas on pricing?
Its only the horizontal part btw that looks to be rusting internally on the p/s and is bubbling up and deformed and letting water in the door.
see im not sure about that, The main thing i understand is the number of teeth and as long as it is under the sensor there should not be an issue
I would count the teeth on both front and see if there is a discrepancy and i also wouldnt rule out one being broken and not just the
check your abs rings on the end of the driveshafts just inside the hub.
they can either be cracked, fully broken, missing teeth or full of loads of crud
the rear brakes have them too but they are a bit more buried but also more protected
right..... my mega seal between the cat and mid section (after both o2 sensors) was less than mega. blowing out at the top. sorted that.
also had a goosey at the rear of the cat and it is perfect. fine mesh, no damage and no blockages
Actually, these are RSTuner logs which I am assuming that not all of you will be able to open?
Perhaps I can just screen capture them as videos or the points that i might feel of interest. Leave it with me.
As for screenshots
So I reset the codes and pulled the following with the engine off...
OK, grabbed a few logs. Will upload when home.
interesting that after the battery pulled last night, it is pulling like an absolute unit.
rear o2 was showing a historic error at start which I cleared.
it was there after the runs with no cel thrown.
rear o2 was around 400 before the spirited...
I was also told by Fred on here that if I was seeing 40mpg and 60mph in 5th then I wasn't far off good and that is what I am seeing at the moment in that scenario
Daily driving however it's sitting around 26/27mpg.
Air temp sensor hasn't been replaced but I think i can pull live data for that...
love this post Martin.........motivated me......thanks :)
yep, genuine bosch o2 went in but will replace as has been said. looking back, it's a year old now......service item almost imo.
I went to town on the white connector under the bonnet. cleaned, inspected and repeated several times, will...
