My 2003 2.2 petrol has developed 2 niggles.

At last fluid change, about 3 years ago.
Once it's been driven and then stands a few hours, next time you drive it 1st gear revs quite high before it changes. Not been a problem as it only does it once.

Last week.
There's a roundabout 1/2 a mile from home. everything's fine till then. At the roundabout when I pull off it feels like a manual. rev-no movement than a second later its like your foot slips off the clutch and bangs onto gear. After that it's fine.
Any thoughts?

Mike

A mate had a hatchback pre frog eyed one, and it was a nice enough place to be a passenger.  His was underpowered, though I forget which engine it had, and we've long since lost touch  :'(. The low power and heavy car made it a less satisfying car to drive.

Bro had a proper Grandad for a while, Mk2 2.8i Ghia, which was a very nice car to driven around in in its day, and went well (by the then standards). It was just too unreliable, so he replaced it with a Chavalier SRi 130, which as we know was bombproof.
Ive had a few them as well, plus the younger 1.8, 8 Valve jobbies, really used to love my ones, you use to have to rag the revs and get them in the right gear to shift properly, but once you mastered that they were really nippy, even by today's standard, not bad for a little 115/130 Bhp lumps.  :y

The one I really would have liked was the Cav 2.0 GSi, think they were 150Bhp from memory, but after a time used to see most of them parked up on the Hard Shoulders   :(  :-\

I had two 1.8l and a 2.0l Cavalier SRi`s and I loved them, reliable and quite quick but were just so easy to work on, I did a clutch change in an hour on one of them. I still have the slide hammer and input shaft adapter and the three clips for the friction disc and clutch plate.

No Mr Barnier will sort it when he revokes our passports.  ::)

It will be like a one way valve. You can leave the Uk via the tunnel but not get back in. ;D

The other way round seems more likely, but only for British passport holders of course.  ::)  Everyone else will be able to come and go as they please and have their rights guaranteed by the ECJ, ICJ, US Supreme Court, Chinese Supreme Peoples Court etc etc   :P

Answers, came there none. I have just checked the part nos. on my silver 2.5 estate, X reg 2001, 9 227 770, and my blue 2.5 estate, V reg 2000, 90 538 729. My Y reg 2001 2.6 saloon steering box is 9 227 770.

By the way, should you perchance wish to check the part number of your steering box, it does not involve crawling under the car, as I presumed, it is in clear view on opening the bonnet, on the plate atop the steering box.

Yes, DBW or non DBW still same. Oil cooler is deep inside the V.

You'd need to take the injection manifold off to get to to the oil cooler, all that comes off for cam covers is the plenum  :y

You need the injection section out to as well to do the cam covers (fuel pipes run across the top of the 1-3-5 bank and the top of the casting is quite a way over the cam covers):

Forgot the injector rail needed to come off  :-[

I've got Kumho's (KU39's) all around on the 3.2 generally fine, although couple of times in Farnborough other day TC light comes on pulling away. Must have been slippery roads, as generally fine.

And again ..... exactly to the penny  ;D

Likewise.. either we all earn exactly the same amount, or there's something funky in the maths that I don't understand ;D

BBC's random number generator a bit stuck  :D
