    Tried to find a forum for this but couldn't find anything. Electrical fault warning light on. Car runs very lumpy on idile. Once going and pushing to about 4k revs will go into limp mode with this warning light on. What's causing this? Also I'm based in N.I if there's any specialists here

    Lambda O2 Sensors on 182

    The pre-cat Lambda sensor was recently replaced on my 182 and it's still posting a fault code. So a friend and I hooked a Solus up today and looked at the voltage being sent by each of the sensors using a live data run. We then unplugged each sensor to see effect. It would seem that the post...

    Squeak: NSF outer CV?

    Hi all, My 182 has developed a squeak from the front left when turning hard to the right (leaving parking spaces etc). There is also sometimes some shuddering from the front end during these same manoeuvres, although I had previously thought this might be down to crap tyres. At recent MOT the...

    Ngk sparks or Megane R26 Spark Plugs

    for a 182, which is a better buy? Everyone suggests Ngk, but the R26 sparks are cheaper. And I've see them included in a turbo build. I intend to add some engine bits eventually such as intercoolers and get a remap and maybe induction or Inlet. Cheers
