  1. A sniff test uses a glass tube and aspirator bulb that pulls fumes from inside the top of the radiator into the test beaker, passing through a gas-sensitive bromothymol blue chemical. If combustion gas is present in the cooling system, a chemical reaction occurs, turning the fluid from blue to yellow, indicating a combustion leak from a head gasket. Sent from my SM-G930F
  2. The mk2 is non canbus. Sent from my SM-G930F
  3. My problem is that the abcess/infection is actually in the jaw under my tongue root. Clove oil won't reach that far. The combination of codeine, paracetamol and Ibuprofen do seem to be helping but still getting a nasty pain surge when the effects wear off. Staggering the tablets is smoothing the surge a fair bit.
  4. 90 is a good innings. R.I.P Chuck.
  5. Tell me about it I know I could do with shifting a bit of spare poundage but still a bit of an extreme dieting option. Missed my guinness on Paddys day too
  6. Aye, i know. At least with a broken bone or pain in a limb you can favour it and do something physically to ease discomfort. With tooth pain it's inside your head and there's no escaping it. This is agony (and this coming from someone who has suffered a broken back in his lifetime). At least the combination of Codeine, Paracetamol and Ibuprofen seems to be helping a bit at last. Going to try and get some much needed sleep, pity I still can't eat anything, been on minimal nutrient input since wednesday. I've even resorted to squeezy packs of baby food fruit puree.
  7. The rear of the ST's gets particularly dirty & wet because of the shape of the spoiler. Good for aerodynamics but bad for crud. Also guarantees you get a shower when you jetwash the back window. Sent from my SM-G930F
  8. Went to A&E last night as pain was horrendous. Nearly got put on intravenous anti-biotics. Pain relief now been doubled so hopefully some blissful sleep may be possible. Sent from my SM-G930F
  9. No rattling but plenty of discomfort. Painkillers are hardly making a difference and pretty much climbing the wall. That dentist is definitely getting chinned on monday 🤕 Sent from my SM-G930F
  10. Well I'm now on 6 hourly 1000mg paracetamol, 60mg codeine, 1000mg amoxycillin and 500mg ipobrufen to ease the swelling under my jaw and combat pain and still not doing well. My dogs know I'm crocked and are following me around the house like doting carers. They hate not being at work (me too tbh) but are getting hourly exercise as the cool air in the garden is cooling on my face plus playing fetch with them is distracting me. The collie has got bored and gone to bed though. Just wish I could manage to eat more than soup and get some proper sleep instead of dozing between bouts of pain when thr medication starts to wear off. God I hate my Dentist so much right now, I think I'll sock him in the mouth with my Asp baton on monday so he gets a taste of what I'm having to suffer. Sent from my SM-G930F
  11. This is usually down to a bad connection in the underseat wiring box. Give everything there a good wiggle to check the contacts are seated properly. Sent from my SM-G930F
  12. My dentist is particularly crap. Never ever been much of a fan of dentists tbh, I would go private but it costs way too much nowadays for even basic treatments.
  13. Aye, dental pain is horrible. It seems to drill right through your head and painkillers don't do a lot. Sent from my SM-G930F
  14. Guys / Gals, It has been reported by some members and noticed by the Moderating team that the sizes of members post signatures are getting a tad too big again. While we appreciate that many members have a lot to be proud of with regards to their cars & projects, oversized signatures can detract from the layout and readability of lengthy posts and threads. It would be appreciated if any 'offending' Members could review their signatures andf reduce/edit as necessary. The official size is deemed as 500 x 200 but we are not expecting precise dimensions, close enough is good enough. Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
  15. He reckons that the tooth nerves are dead but fillings have pushed an infection into the soft tissue of the jaw. Painkillers and anti-biotics until monday then probably root canal treatments. Sent from my SM-G930F
