    Holy crap Don! I think this is a rare occasion where 'exceptional' might well be an understatement!! :o I can only echo the prior sentiments above /grouphug As for the WhatsApp group, it is exceptional circumstances when the discussion is on topic, since it is mainly Rikki taking the pss or Kryton making drunken purchases. So, a bit like the CVR4 chats of old really! /lol

    I might be barking up the wrong tree here - but is the starter motor engaging properly?

    Could be the first sign that the ATF needs replacing? How's the fluid level and condition look?

    Sounds like the standard 'feature'! These can be a little susceptible to heat soak so the initial 30s or so after restarting the temperature readings can be a bit off until the normal air flow through the system has cooled things to the ambient temperature again. The gearbox might be linked if that's the only time it clunks a bit into gear and is fine the rest of the time.

    Do you mean straight away, or after you've turned it off for 15/20 mins or so?

    Right, I should finish in Leeds about 9am ish. Could I meet you somewhere around 10? I'll definitely have the 0w-30 and the ATF. If I have to kill some time, then I might be able to, if necessary.

    /Welcome Yes, pictures of cars are always nice! /Camera And all the spanners you don't use on the Fiat will probably be good for the VR-4, so you can spread the wear /lol

    I'll be interested in the ATF and the 0w-30, depending on exact details! I am in Leeds next Tuesday (25th) so could well swing by if that is suitable for us both.

    You can also pull the fault codes and see what AYC codes there are. It is most likely a tired pump which can be resolved with one of Malc's adjustable switches as already mentioned. The pump reservoir is behind the right hand side boot panel.

    Yep, 5 years. The mileage stated has varied a couple of times, I think between 45,000 and 54,000.

    Hi Nev, hope you can help- bought my legnum vr4 twin turbo about two years ago, had to get a gearbox rebuild just over a year ago, because it is an import made for the Japanese and Brazilian market i thought parts would be hard to get but got sorted at a cost of £1800. Have bought a lot of servicing parts from camskills and at present waiting for two inlet valves and a few other parts. trying to get the tork settings for the head and cam but not having any luck. Does the club sell workshop manuals or do you know where I can buy one regardless of price. Not used the club before because was unsure how it all realy worked. Sorry the car is 1998 ( 27-02-1998 ). Francey
  2. Hi Steve

    Thanks for the message.

    Unfortunately, new users aren't able to post in the FS/WTB areas until they have reached three months, 10 non-spam posts, or have became a member. Having said that, in your circumstances (i.e. you're not taking the mickey!) if you post up a WTB thread in a different area, and ask me to move it, I can do. The limit is designed to prevent people simply registering just to sell stuff really.

    However, the wood window switch, despite Mitsi's love of the I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Wood effect in the Galant, was not an option (or part of a standard package) on any JDM or UK 8Gs. There may be possibility that it was available somewhere on a European or Asian market version - or even a USDM, although I doubt it very much on both counts, and the USDM is probably actually a different fitting anyway.

    Just thought you should know! Your best bet may be to get a match on a wood-effect vinyl, and wrap the switch?

    Good luck,

    Dude, wonder if you can help.
    I've tried several times to post in the fs/wtb section, but keep getting a message telling me I can't.

    I'm only after a wood effect window switch, that I can fit into my custom CA/CJ Colt build, and the only car that seems to have them is the VR4.

    Please can you sort priviledges for me so I can post, and PM me back?

    Thanks in advance.
