I've used loads of the stuff mate and for good paintwork the best I can find on a budget is autoglym super resin polish then g3 resin wax, if your after spending a bit more same polish but basically the best swissVax wax you can afford

In Topic: Electric Issue When Changing Gear?????

Hi welcome mate,

I can't personally see why a gear change from 2nd to third would cause this maybe try a little drive going 1st 2nd 4th see if it still happens.

If not can you give more details ?

If you get your tyres done by a major garage they will put in the factory recommended settings sometimes they need tweaking slightly for extra weight (big sound system in boot?) if not as tomo said pressures. After that all the wheel values need checking

the flashing glowplug light shows any fault on the fuel side of things, so it could be any thing from a sensor to injectors / fuel pump, check the cam sensor is clean as this is a common fault for a non start, then get the codes read as this should give you an idea on what is wrong,you may have to start checking things like glowplugs through to fuel delivery,without an inspection its difficult to pinpoint exactly whats wrong.


Yep, the way your describing things tho mate could just be a nackered cell in battery maybe worth trying a new one

He may go backwards if he follows your advice,,,, by all means get a remap, IF your going to leave it at that. But get a remap first, then changing other things like air flow and exhaust systems will result in the remap needing re-mapping again because the circumstances have changes within the fueling etc........ So my opinion, is remap if your happy that will be enough, and your on a budget. If not, the the world is yours to explore.


true, but by getting a standard pre written map would make the most of his current setup and then adding other parts wouldnt change much realy as the updated software is no longer looking for efficiency, and if you go to someone like superchips or dream science (this would be my advice) then they have about 4 maps wich are then free of charge after that, for instance you just get the standard remap then if you replaced exhaust + downpipe + air filter + intercooler you can get a stage 2 map and so on.
