Do you live in one of those country mansions that appear on those documentaries about Britain's most prestigious estate mansions in the middle of nowhere?

Hi Troy.

Hi, not sure if you're aware but you already started another thread discussing the same issue on the forum.

Far as I know injectors should "pulse" and spray fuel out, and when the engine is idling you should be able to hear the slight "fast ticking" sound of the injectors opening and closing. At least on the 8 valvers that is the case, I've not had experience with 16 valvers. Sounds li...

I'm going to sound blunt here and admins please forgive me.

I had that on my old auto (C18NZ) which I didn't get on my two other Cavaliers at the time, it felt weird, usually did it when the car was stationary (if I shook the steering) or at slow speeds when turning right and feeding the steering wheel back, felt like something jumped a tooth almost, I was a...

Sounds like you need legal aid! Better get some support on your side, this appears to be one of those cases where you can't do much about it, but get some legal advice anyway, never know, it may help in some way.

You can get rust remover products, do a search, can probably find them at most motorfactors, if you can find one with a small brush attachment or have a small brush that you can use to get into tiny spaces, then do that, treat the rust first before applying rust preventing chemicals.

WD-40 is a temporary solution, it will not protect when it dries up. It's not designed to be used as long-term rust preventer for cars. Garden shears, bike wheel sprockets, or electrical components, it's perfect for. If you use Waxoyl or similar products, I'd imagine that if you don't lay it on too ...

Waxoyl seems to be a popular choice I believe, you can get it in spray cans or a big can from which you can brush it on.

To sum it up, 3 main points to remember are: 1) Driving style. James May will always get more MPG in the same car rather than say Jeremy Clarkson. 2) Driving conditions. Heavy traffic/light traffic and length of journeys. Longer journeys will always return better MPG if you let the engine run up to ...

Standard is as good as original. In my mind, that's perfect for a restoration.

There should be a manual adjust knob on the basic headlamps, it depends on which model they are fitted on, anything above an LS (facelift) will have electrically adjustable level headlamps.

If you're driving in heavy traffic a lot, or give it a good blast up the motorway and return to slow speeds in town, then I would expect a well functioning coolant system to creep up to around 95C, then the V6s have 2-stage fans, a lower speed which kicks in first at around 95C or so, and a higher s...

Hi, I had a V6, and I'm pretty sure the said relay is in the engine compartment relay/fuse box near the bulkhead. I can't remember which one it is but I did replace mine before to no avail as it didn't solve the problem. Could be the resistor on yours that is playing up, and there are also 2 other t...

The old radiator on my old C18NZ cracked at where the core meets the plastic on the offside, thermostat end, check for anti-freeze or brown stains where the plastic meets the metal, it could be that. Luckily it's a piece of piss to replace the radiators on these, so much room to work with and easy a...
