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
