Steering Notchy on LH side

I had similar issues with a seized steering UJ. it was hard to tell that it was the problem without removing and feeling the knotchiness.

Brake fluid warning lamp

I believe the wires at the pads and master cylinder are all earth wires. Both lights should come on with the handbrake. I have seen the light flicker when moving the handbrake lever also so the wiring for the warning light does go via the handbrake switch too.

Essex head gasket failed?

I also thought about this too. the old plastic bottle is pretty grotty. according to the google machine it needs a capacity of 2.16L based on a 12L cooling system capacity. http://blog.cantonracingproducts.com/blog/calculating-expansion-tank-size-requirements maybe one of these might suit - https://...

Fuel hose

I had it in my e36 BMW a few years ago after i replaced the OEM stuff with what some rubbish from the motor factor, was probably coolant hose and not fuel hose at all. Return line burst driving along at 120km down the motorway, didn't feel it but I saw my fuel gauge drop from 1/4 full to empty in a ...

Bumper Rubbers

New ones are available from GW but i recall the price was quite high. Somewhere in the region of £200 i think. But good if you dont have time to spend sanding i guess.

Inlet manifold glue expanding and blocking coolant holes

Inlet manifold glue expanding and blocking coolant holes

Has anyone seen anything like this before. An inlet manifold i fitted in 2016 has blocked coolant holes because the glue holding the copper plates on has reacted with coolant/water and expanded. It has turned into a squishy rubbery like substance. 20190824_152148.jpg 20190824_152154.jpg 20190824_152...
