General Car Chat / Re: condensation
« on: Yesterday at 18:45:43 »
Ive fitted a 12v computer style fan into one of my cars to keep an airflow when parked up and that car never condenses up. Even if you park it up with condensation in it clears itself. Ill be doing the same to others .also done it to my garage and that helped too !

i wouldnt worry too much providing you dont have any coolant loss or wet carpets. all mine mist up a lot when not in use and can be parked up for 3 weeks at a time untouched. they then get damp which takes a bit to dry out.obviously do the usual checks for scuttle or other leaks as well if you wish.

it depends on what you are used to of course but ive never found my 2.6 to be particularly bad on fuel and my brothers 2.5 v6 is even better. i can easily manage 100 mile out of 20 which is good by my book.he can manage 110-115. my other cars with the cam in head cast iron engine (2litre/2.2)get around 75 miles .around town. better on runs of course. yes small modern euroboxes will probably triple that but thats the price for luxury driving.

A really firm pressure could be indicative of a blown head gasket - I hope I am wrong!

Ron.


this is one thing i was concerned about.
ie what made the hose come off in the first place.   
and if it was pressure why didnt the cap open first.

it centainly sounds ok at the moment.if theres no signs of any water in the oil,( dipstick end,ignore any tendancy to get salad cream in filler neck at this stage )no signs of bubbles or pressure build up in header tank and no white smoke from exhaust i would run car for a few short journeys at first and monitor water level. all may be well.
any ideas as to why hose blew off ? did it have a jubilee type clip or was the original spring clip weak?

Your memery is 100% correct. Just taken mine off yesterday ! To check for a minor water leak at the screen corner.(i think)

 So been reading somewhere on here that its a hall effect and uses a magnetic arm to give position and some say it may be a pot. Can anyone confirm either. If it was a pot and the arm came off surely it wouldnt bring up a fault as the shaft is designed to move anyway it just wouldnt be indicating what the suspension was doing . . .?    Just curious how it operates .thanks.

when they bring up the field vision error message is it because it has detected the sensor has gone open circuit ? .and can they fail in other ways too.like no error messages but no signs of lights moving ? .

hi. just because its sitting lower at the back doesnt necesarily mean the problem is at the back. unless the car is twisted which i dont imagine it will be then if you have one side higher at the back this could mean the front opposite corner is low.you realy need to confirm ride heights to see if its the back or front.they can all be slightly different.mine is a 2003 cdx and as a basic look out of my window at it you can see a good couple of inches between the top of the front tyre and arch and possibly 3 on the back wheel but as i say they will all be slightly different due to age,different specs,different makes of spring etc.
so.starting at the back first i assume this problem was also there with the old springs and new ones are the same even if you swap them side to side ?.
as been mentioned the springs both have their rubbers and no signs of any rusting or other damage to the seats ?.
no obvious faults / equal gaps etc between side crossmember mounts (donuts!) and the rear diff mounts.
no obvious damage /bends or otherwise to rear arms .
no different tyre sizes fitted !
then moving on to the front.have you done any work to springs,strut top mounts etc and with suspension hanging free can you confirm the springs are not broken,no evidence of broken ends even thou the broken bit may have fallen out.(they dont usually!)
