General Car Chat / renault 1.5dci problem
« on: 02 October 2019, 20:32:03 »
renault is going into limp mode under pressure, he is talking about scrapping it has he thinks it ignition pump & injectors at fault. a mate of mine has had a diagnostic on it & its saying ignition fault. when the ignition card is put in stage 1 is not doing anything but stage2 everything goes on & it will start ok. when he drove it & it seemed to go into limp mode he reckoned he pushed the card in it righted itself. so he thinks it the card reader at fault.

General Discussion Area / petrol (self driven ) lawnmower
« on: 21 September 2019, 11:57:06 »
the lawnmower that i have is a typical pull start job. on starting its always been a bit hard to start & when it is going it is slightly backfiring  . near to me there is a service place that sells & repairs all types of machines. i spoke to one of their fitters and he told me that because modern petrol contains ethanol small machinery that,s not on daily use can get a small amount of water in the fuel tank causing the problem. apparently there is a product that when added to petrol alleviates the issue. when i asked him what it was he just said bring the machine in & for 50 plus time & any bits they would sort it. spark plug ,air filter are ok. just need to know what the additive is.  :-\ :y

General Discussion Area / Re: Bloody houses .. and builders!
« on: 17 September 2019, 12:52:00 »
 my son bought a house that was newly built some 18yrs ago. they moved in on a friday afternoon but himself & partner went back to his girlfriends mums place for his tea & a shower before they went out to the local pub for a night out. from the pub they went to the newly acquired house. the next day whilst showering, water was pouring through living room ceiling . whoever had done the plumbing had not fixed the waste to anything.  also a front porch lamp was similar to a coach lamp & when the bulb actually went which had to be inserted from the top was too near the soffit for it to be removed & replaced

 i think most mp,s have not got a clue why the leave option was voted for with such a big majority. or they do know but because of political correctness do not mention it. also there seems a real imbalance on how the news about brexit is reported , it seems to be in the remain camp.

General Car Chat / Re: glow plugs ??

Why do you suspect that they are not?

Ron.
its my daughter in-laws pug ., sluggish starting , first start from overnight, will sometimes run the battery down. no lights on dash when driving. i intend to check the battery & alternator tomorrow. i suspect it may be the glow plugs as its on a 02 plate , she,s had the car from new & they have never been replaced.
well battery was holding 12.5v  with engine running 14.4v. alternator doing what its intended. glow plugs crap so changed them. alls well now. :y :y

From what I understand,  there are O rings in or around the injectors that, when they fail, allow air into the system and fuel to drain back into the tank so on the first start of the day the the fuel pump needs to drag fuel up from the tank first.  :-\

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Re: 2.2 dti bits
« on: 04 September 2019, 22:42:05 »
General experience says the non-GM steering idlers don't last two mins/have more play than the used ones they're supposed to replace - but you saw 5 years on one - what make was it, out of interest?

(this is me assuming this is a non-GM idler, of course!)
dont know the make. just seems a shame to take everything to the tip when an oof member may make some use of. i also have some 10/40 oil enough to probably do a couple of oil changes.

Yep the DS "brand" is the Citroen/PSA attempt to move upmarket in the same way Toyota did with the Lexus.I've always found the DS4 a slightly curious design in as much as although a 4 door hatch there is no provision for opening the windows of the rear doors,form over function?
in the short time i have had it the rear windows are not an issue . the a/c is very cold, also on the economy side its costing me a fair bit cheaper to insure & with zero road tax, plus more m.p.g.. downside i am at the mo doing a bit of landscaping at my house & the wife is not allowing this vehicle to be used as a site barrow ;D i could get allsorts in the mig.  :y

General Car Chat / new car
« on: 10 August 2019, 19:39:15 »
 i got the chance of obtaining a new car so i decided on a whim to let my mig go. anyway a mate after the fact asked me where it was & found out that it had gone for auction. with the help of a search its ended up in Telford Shropshire for sale at 595. its moved from Leeds where i left it to there.
