    Mitsi's SP-III can get trashed well before the 45k service interval. Amsoil ATF is fantastic in these boxes. It's probably closer to a 'fill for life' oil!

    what oil does it say was used for the gear box? the auto box oil only needs to changed every 45K miles so i am surprised it was changed every year. the correct oil is expensive a full flush with 10-15L of oil is about £150-£200 ish depending how much you use. the is a guy on here adaxo adam that can get AMSoil for a good price. he is putting order in at this very moment so jump on this thread and you can get the oils from him. ...

    Alas, you're too kind (unless you mean the previous owner between me and me! :D). The leading edge of the bonnet had blown - though Atik was looking to get it sorted and take it onwards and upwards! One thing I remained impressed with was how good the underside and other potential areas of concern are - pretty damn solid /yes

    is that one of the wheel speed sensors. or is it the input shaft speed sensor on top of the gear box that sits underneath the air box.. it could be as i have seen the pins of the sensor corrode away to blue green dust because people let the hollows in the gear box casing fill with water and the sensors sit in the bottom of these hollows so input shaft speed sensor could be a culprit. if my memory serves me right the input shaft is at the front ad the output shaft sensor is at the back. both...

    Never really left the Club (cos you never really leave the Club) but back in a little more after taking ownership of a new car. I am now the proud owner of The Fridge. A car I fell in love with back when elnevio first had it, and with circumstances just falling into place in recent months, saw us agreeing very favourable terms which now sees me in ownership of a very unique car on the roads! Have had it just over a month now and slowly getting used to the power delivery. For those...

    You can bypass the IFS by connect the tach signal directly to the ECU but as Garry says you lose the reason why it is there in the first place. But you have to remember the following. If the IFS fails the car will not start. So if you are worried about failures make the connection required to bypass the IFS and don't connect them then if the the IFS fails you can just lift the bonnet and bypass the IFS immediately. i would not recommend bypassing the IFS all the time but there is no reason...

    make sure you are looking at the connector the right way up. it might be narrow at the top and wide and the bottom or wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. i can never remember which way round it is.

    Why were you leaving skid marks? can you give more detail which of the following is the reason. are the gear changes really harsh and fast? are the gear changes the same when using D and the manual mode. what fluid did you use to fill the gear box was it SPIII compliant please specify the exact type. if you ahve used the wrong fluid type it can cause all kinds of issues with the gear change. 1. the car was only working in rear wheel drive and you were doing a burnout on the rear...

    have you been doing any work on your car before this failure occurred? what was the scenario of the failure? e.g. 1. were you thrashing the car on track and the failure occurred. 2. have you left you car standing for 2 years and come back to it tried to start it and drive it away and the failure occurred. 3. have you been driving the car about for the last 3 weeks with no issues at all, putting your foot down every now and then and the car has performed perfectly. you got up the next...

    :o Holy moly! Sadly, fairly standard for an 'official UK' car. The importers gave them nothing more than a rudimentary undersealing. And why would an owner of a new car even think about getting a car undersealed subsequently. Shame, cause they still look good on the outside. And I suppose, /Welcome

    The metal work round the sub is reinforced and relatively thick metal panels cover all the openings. I can't get to the ayc reservoir behind the carpet panel without unbolting anther metal panel. Plus all the removable panels have a thick foam tape around them to stop the panel vibrating with the tunes. Personally don't use the sub as it was connected to the factory amp in the boot and had long since been removed as it was not connected to the after market stereo in the front. I very rarely...

    It's definitely hit and miss - daren't touch my pump, but it's done 70,000 in the 12.5 years since import, and it's not even needed the adjustable switch yet. It has always had Amsoil ATF in it in that time, maybe that's a factor. I know this is a slight tangent, but if you don't need to disturb it, there's possibly less need to relocate it. Though I have had the tow bar on, off then on again, thinking about it!

    Flashy dash works with the ignition on, doesn't matter whether the engine is running or not. You should definitely be seeing flashing lights! /yes What are you using to bridge the pins? Is it making good contact? Sorry to push the 'user error' side of things, but it's not really a known thing to fail! I was on a course near the university in Coventry at the beginning of the week - I would have been happy to pop round and have a look too had I have realised how close I was. I'll try to...

    i was thinking of the rear wing void as a possibility. but i a not sure how much space there actually is. my car is bit odd in this respect as i have a factory fit sub in the boot which means all the panels around that area have no openings in them, they are all covered by blanking plates to seal the sub box. i might look at removing the side storage tray in the back so the pump sits a bit lower and only need a small box putting over the top of it. as the starage tray is probably 2 or 3 inches...

    The plastic tub option (or a stainless steel box if you're feeling flush!) is probably a decent shout. Or surely there's enough room in the rear wing where the reservoir is located?
