Any small exhaust leak will mess with the Lambda reading, may be a small enough blow not to fail the test :y

Yep, and given the rest of the results this is where my money would be, in addition to checking the plugs. There's a bit of hc in the exhaust so any sign of a misfire?

I don't think additives are going to help.

Doesn't sound too good but will be interesting to see what you find.
If the rest of the vehicle's sound you could always source another engine. Plenty of them get scrapped with perfectly good mechanicals.

I suspect that in a decade when Mrs May is gone and has left this country as effectively a colony of the EU thanks to her efforts.  News will emerge that she has been living in a splendid Villa on the Riviera, Amalfi Coast, Algarve or somewhere equally glamorous on the continent.  :-X

.. with a massive pension from Brussels thanks to shuffling papers around there for a few years after her banishment from UK politics, naturally.

I just couldn't care less any more. Perhaps this was May's plan all along, beat us into apathy.
There it is again!

None of the chatter really matters. Its highly unlikely her deal will get through the commons, as it seems designed to piss off everyone on all sides.
Hopefully the Tories will finally grow a pair and get rid of her after the commons vote, then it all starts over again.

I'm starting to think that Brexit isn't going exactly to plan. :)

Plan? :-\

That Evening Standard page had so much content, videos, adverts etc that my laptop ground to a halt and I gave up waiting for it to load.  ::)

..and then they whine about people like me who run ad blockers. ;D

From the comments section:

"Hmmm, I was going to laugh at her, however, on reflection, she has a point. Anyway, anyone who annoys Piers Morgan is OK with me. Morgan is an obnoxious bell-end".

 ;D ;D This is about the average level of critique from members of the viewing public these days. There are comments waiting to be moderated, but bell-end sails through the process. Downward spiral. We are all doomed.
I hear what you're saying, but she has a point about Piers Morgan. ;)

Is dropping the sump a simple matter of draining the oil, then undoing the bolts holding sump to block?

Not familiar with this model, but that's the usual procedure. Just depends if anything's in the way.

It would be interesting as a post-mortem if nothing else, but you might find that you can clean out the oil pickup and sump, fresh oil and filter and there's no lasting damage. Unlikely, perhaps, if it's been driven with the oil light on for any distance, but who knows?

So, if it gets nodded through by the cabinet, the house of commons, doesn't upset the DUP and doesn't get vetoed by any EU member states, we're sorted? :y

Hmm. Wondering if the pickup strainer got clogged? Years of neglect followed by fresh oil with fresh detergent...?

Yep, easy enough to change to standard shocks, and probably the best option if you don't tow regularly but you do need to disable the levelling system by removing the compressor relay in the fuse box.


Pah, McAfee is no where near as bad as the Symantec/Norton virus used to be. (I've not tried Symantec for years, so it may have improved, but I doubt it.)

I should have said, same advice applies to Symantec. ;D

Omega General Help / Re: battery problem?
« on: 13 November 2018, 12:24:17 »
The crimps where the cables join the battery terminals are prone to working loose. Check that the battery terminals aren't getting hot and that the crimps are secure.

Mine gave me a warning that my mcafee licence had expired yesterday . . . . . funny thing is I dont have it installed. :-\

Once your machine is pwned by mcafee you might as well just bin it. ;)

I'm guessing more local take-up has gradually increased either contention or crosstalk between the lines.
