    Flat spot under acceleration and almost cutting out

    Forgot I wrote this. I refitted my evap canister and removed the oil catch can and had the pcv go straight into my inlet and solved the problem. Is suspect there was a slight air leak around where I'd blocked off the canister pipe

    K11 1994 1.3 LX and E10 fuel - have i fallen in a rabbit hole?

    I think super unleaded is still OK to use although even that doesn't seem as common these days

    K11 Lowered 35mm, but front sits much higher! - The Purple Nurpul

    I had the same problem. I cut a coil off the bottom of the front springs and then it was level Before After

    Flat spot under acceleration and almost cutting out

    Thanks. Thought that was the case. Am going to try cleaning mine first. Euro car parts sell them cant remember the make but they're £150. Are these still likely to be as bad?

    Could eml possibly be due to the leaking manifold gasket? Could be causing false readings to the o2 sensors

    Flat spot under acceleration and almost cutting out

    I have thought about that. But the induction kit has been on there a 2-3 years now. I'll try dig it out and give it a go

    Flat spot under acceleration and almost cutting out

    Hi guys after some advise. I occasionally get a flat spot under hard acceleration and engine seems to be holding back in general.

    Micra K11 tailgates

    I believe the tailgates and rear screen are the same. The handles and wiper setup were different

    K11 1.3 rear anti-roll bar (stability bar) - help needed please!

    Hi I'm an MOT tester. Technically speaking it's a fail due to missing suspension component. However theres nothing to tell the tester your car had one so it would have to be judged on if the mounting points are there

    Question for people who used lowering springs.

    I have amax -30mm on stock shocks with one coil cut off the fronts to bring it level as I found the rear was sitting lower. Handling was improved and ride was fine. I've since fitted 15" alloys with much lower profile cheap tyres so its abit rough now though lol. I've heard/seen some horror...

    Do you know if your S13 steering boss is for a non airbag column. I only ask as the steering bosses I find listed for my k11 are the same as s13 with airbag. However non airbag s13 is half the price and I dont want to be paying £40 just so it switches off the airbag light which I can easily do...

    Fair enough. I've got amax -30mm that I took one coil off the front springs. I was thinking about taking another off each corner but was worried it might bottom out the shocks
