Re: New Warning light - What's this one?

Glow plug light, should just come on for around 10 seconds when cold.
It probably just a duff conection that's making it come on at random times. Does it come on when starting from cold?

Re: Baby car seat in the van

Brickwerks do a 3 point seat belt kit. Fitted one to my old van, took a bit of fiddling around with and had to try a selection of babdy seats before we found one that worked ok. Biggest problem was with buckle crunch.

Re: Jx injection pump alignment

The 1.9td in my old van was a bit like this, belt didn't run centre on the pump, seemed fine for the 7 years I had it and 2 differant belts. Although it wasn't rubbing anywhere.

Re: Coolant expansion tank completely empty.

It will be head gasket or head leak. If the cooling system is doing weird/ inconsistent things.

Re: Dropping Engine using wood + straps

I'd say borrow an engine crane or hire one, makes it so much easier and safer

Re: Temperamental Starter Motor

Surly if it's not starting in the morning after camping then it's draining while you are camping. Do you have leisure battery? Or are you running the camping electrics from the starter battery?

Re: 1.9 petrol dg smoke after overrun

I would suspect it's coolant burning

Re: Bleeding 2.1 wbx cooling system issues.. What the hell is going on!

My money is on head seal too I'm afraid. I had a old pug 206 which ran fine but could ever bleed it properly for a good few months after I changed a leaking rad. Then head gasket went so I assume it was always on the way out.

Re: Clear oil leaking after driving

Could be leaking from the cam cover gasket and running down the block. My aaz does this

Re: Oh dear have I messed up the gears

Could it not be clutch related? Maybe dragging or not releasing correctly

Re: clutch

I would bleed it, no adjustment that I'm aware of.

Re: Fuel overflow or spill?

I'd definitely suspect the filler bit pictured is the problem
