In Topic: How To Improve Fuel Economy And Power?

Yesterday, 03:26 PM

1.6 TDCI @ 45,000 miles here. Get between 50 and 55, depending on how sensibly I drive. Always brim the tank, about 50/50 town/motorway driving. Trip computer pretty much agrees with brim calculations. Supermarket diesel and always run it down to 20 or so miles remaining.

In Topic: 1.6 Tdci P0380 - Glow Plug/heater Circuit A

Just to follow up on this, I've swapped a few relays around in the fusebox under the bonnet, and it's still coming on (and nothing else has broken!). Luckily I can stop it happening by just turning the key all the way instantly, and not giving the glow plugs a chance to do anything!


Got a quote of around £175 for diags and a new set of plugs (if it needs it!). This sound reasonable?


I would try and change/test these myself, but it sounds very involved on the 1.6D. Stupid French thing!


Also, if anyone has any suggestions of good indies in the Manc/Rochdale area, that'd be appreciated.

My nightbreakers lasted less than a year. Both blew within a week of each other. Back to halfords standard now, much more important things to do than battle with those headlights!

The central locking noise is a common problem. Mine had it and was fixed under warranty at the dealers. Pig of a job apparently.

Mines a mk 2.5 but whenever I put the recommended pressure in the fronts it feels really unstable! Think I'm on around 32PSI but haven't checked it in ages!
