General Discussion Area / vape cigs
« on: 03 November 2019, 21:15:59 »
 friday morning i had a phone call to say my son had been taken to hospital with a heart attack. he had phoned his doc,s surgery to say he had serious chest pains & they sent an ambulance to take him to hospital. 36 hours later having nothing been found to be wrong with him he was discharged & allowed home. it turned out it was a reaction to a vape cig. how it was diagnosed he had another puff of the thing when he got off the hospital premises & almost immediately got the chest pains back.

I couldn't see any cracks, so hopefully OK. Thanks for telling me, will keep an eye on the manifold, where is the main problem area for them?
  is it all done now. ?? if not i,m free to give an hand now.

Got the wobble bar set ordered, just waiting for them.  They are bolts that have 6 sided heads, that thread into the manifold. I think they are original, most parts on the car are. Once I have got the bolts out, will stick a nut and bolt setup on instead.

Thanks everyone for the advice. Glad to know that I'm not the only one who has had problems with this bolt  :y
i think i am right in saying west cornforth is just off the A1 so if so i am about 50mls south of you . i too are only 5 mins off the a1 & have a good selection of wobble bars so willing to give you an hand if needed.  :y

on tonights "who wants to be a millionaire " a young guy didnt know the answer to the question which monarch was at the signing of the magna carta so he elected to phone a friend . his friend wasnt sure. as it was the contestant guessed and chose the correct answer. jeremy clarkson did ask why he chose the friend in question to try for the answer. the contestant replied " because he has a history degree ???
  the actual date & location was mentioned in the question , so john as one of the options i assumed some one that has a uni degree in history would know the answer.

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 ??
« on: 07 September 2019, 14:46:59 »
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.  :-\
