Re: Engine won't start

I had the same problem on my 214 a few years back not knowing if it would fire up or not.Sometimes it would be ok for a few days Then it would play up again.After replacing the crank sensor I never encountered any more starting problems.

And I fear more cancellations in the coming weeks but hopefully some events will still go ahead later in the year (he says touching wood)

Re: Intention to introduce E10 fuel in the UK

Yet another cause of concern running an older vehicle and you can bet a pound to a penny that the E5 protector fuel will eventually cost more and I have concerns about its availability in years to come

Re: Expansion tank

Just a quick update,I cleaned the expansion tank with degreaser and small gravel come up a treat but if like me you have a later vehicle with a low coolant level sensor it might be better not to use gravel as it gets jammed between the float and casing thus causing the warning lamp to either stay on...

Expansion tank

Hi all,after replacing the head gasket on my 45 I’m left with an oil stain in the expansion tank. Does anyone know of a product I can use to clean it ?
