#341677 Long Term Effects Of Egr Blanking.....

Posted by damadgeruk on 11 March 2014 - 09:14 PM

Another happy EGR blank user here, fitted to the wife's '59 1.6TDCi 110 Euro5 and it drives much nicer for it. No hesitation pulling away - always had a nasty dead spot. Still to do my '58 1.6TDCi 90 Euro4 though it doesn't have the same 'need'.




#339138 How Embarrassing. Focus Rolled Into A Transit

:wacko:

 

This is why I also leave the car in gear when it's parked - normally 1st.  If the car's pointing downhill even slightly, I leave it in reverse.

 

Also when I park on hills, I turn the wheel into the kerb.  That way you've got the handbrake, gearbox and kerb stopping your car from going anywhere.

People still do this? I always leave my car in gear when parked, 1st or reverse will offer the best anti-rolling resistance. I also always start a car with the clutch depressed (negating the need to check if it's in gear) as it slightly reduces the starting load.

Does the manual or highway code not explain how to park safely on a hill?  I thought these were 'common sense' though I'm finding common sense is increasingly uncommon.  ;)




#317234 Rear Interior Light

Piece of cake. I picked up a spare from the scrappie, cut the roof liner in the back and ran a bit of cable from the front light. Rear courtesy light works with the front, on its own manually or off. I stuck one of these in, it's bright though they've almost doubled the price since early December.
