General Car Chat / One for the Diesel experts.
« on: 14 December 2019, 18:44:37 »
As Ive mentioned elsewhere Airfix 1 (aka clit 1.5 dci) is giving me trouble. It is very difficult to start and sometimes wont start at all. Fault code is low fuel pressure. Ive done some investigation and the main piece of evidence so far has been revealed by testing the amount of fuel coming from each leak off pipe.
With the engine running for a minute or two a small amount of fuel comes from three of the pipes which I have extended for the test, and collects in containers. The fourth one had a lot of fuel coming from the pipe and collected about twenty times more fuel than the other three combined.
To me, this suggests that injector may be stuck closed / inoperative so no fuel is being used by it.
Ive collected the fuel from the filter and it had a small amount of what looked like dirt in it, but didn't appear to be metallic, which is one piece of good news I hope.
Any opinions guys ?

General Discussion Area / Which laptop ?

Swmbo has had her Sony vaeiou for years and has been happy with it but its getting near the end of its life apparently.
She has a budget of approx. 800 to replace it but isn't sure what to go for.
Knowledgeable advice/ opinions welcome.

General Discussion Area / Hamiltons number 44 - Vauxhall.
« on: 02 December 2019, 16:41:37 »
Watched a great interview yesterday, where Hamilton was interviewed by a 10 year old boy. He asked why he always has number 44 as his race number.
Hamilton told him that years ago his Dad had a Vauxhall Cavalier with number 44 in the registration number, so his Dad chose that as his race number and he has stuck with it ever since.
Who,d have thunk it ?

General Car Chat / Is a Vauxhall a Fiat a Peugeot or a Chrysler ?
« on: 31 October 2019, 13:49:10 »
Peugeot who own Vauxhall have announced they are to merge with Fiat Chrysler. So the next generation Corsa will probably be a Punto with a griffin badge stuck on each end.
It aint like the good old days, that's for sure.

General Discussion Area / Bercow is going.

His much bullied staff will no doubt be breathing a sigh of relief. Sally might find it more difficult to find the time to shag members of his family when hes at work from now on though.
I detest the little poison dwarf, in case it wasn't obvious.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Reversing sensors stopped working.
« on: 01 September 2019, 18:48:04 »
As above, don't even get the initial beep when put it in reverse. Where to start - do they have their own fuse near the rear somewhere ?

MS has been pestering me to install a Windows 10 update for a while, so last night I did. It took ages to install, so presumably a big update.
Since then, I cant access smileys on this or any other forum I use. I click on them but nothing happens.
Anyone know why ? 

General Car Chat / Corsa questions.
« on: 31 July 2019, 20:06:12 »
56 plate 1.2 sxi corsa. How much would ved cost ? Whats a realistic mpg figure overall ? Advert says "chain rattles on startup for 1-2 seconds". Likely to be terminal / a major problem, or something that can be lived with ?

Omega General Help / Key stuck in ignition.
« on: 21 July 2019, 21:01:15 »
Its been one of those days. 190 got slower and slower until it would barely move. Changed the fuel filter assuming it would cure it, but now it wont even start. ::)
Laptop charger / mains adapter packed up later today.
Drove the Omega to work tonight and when I got here, couldn't get the key out of the lock. Tried several times - wiggling, jiggling, using almost brute force, but it wont turn back to 0 and wont come out.  :(

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Electrickery escaping.
« on: 17 July 2019, 12:56:16 »
Every once in a while, after the car has been parked for around a week, I go to start it and find the battery as flat as a witches mammary gland.
I drove it last Friday and was going to drive it again yesterday evening, and although everything electrical lit up and worked ok, there wasn't quite enough grunt in the battery to turn the engine over.
Battery is newish and I would be surprised if its on the way out, but its possible I suppose.
Where to start to look for the source of electric leaking out of the car ?  :-\
Its not my strong point tbh. Not quite sure what is, but I know electrickery isn't.  :D

I know F1 has massive underlying problems, but today at Silverstone it produced a superb race. Im sure even TB enjoyed it.
Wheel to wheel battles all over the place and Hamilton winning a record 6th British GP.
Couldn't have asked for much more. :)
Time for Vettel to hang up his helmet I think. Hes now so desperate Im almost embarrassed for him.  :D ::)

Why anyone would want to watch the grass grow at the tennis or cricket is beyond me.  ::)

Heres hoping.

General Discussion Area / Thanks to Toledodude.

I mentioned to him yesterday that I could do with a couple of small parts from the Omega he was scrapping. About an hour ago he dropped them off to me, without even knocking the door so I could at least offer him a cuppa as payment.
A very kind gesture, and proof the spirit of OOF is alive and well.
Thanks again mate.  :y :y

Last Friday I sat in the car waiting for swmbo to come out of Sainsburys and this song came on the radio. I found it deeply moving, and actually had goosebumps.
A few minutes later the DJ said people were calling in to say they had to pull their cars & trucks over as their eyes were filed with tears.
Jim Radford is 90 years old and wrote this about his first trip as a 15 year old merchant seaman, which was the Normandy landings.
