    1.3 is not running right

    I have had my 1.3 engine fitted for nearly a year now but I have always felt that it's not running as well as it should. It just lacks the fizz that I expected and feels flat. I have 2 other cars, both which have a quoted 75hp and as the Micra is lighter I would expect better performance. On...

    Full Sportex Exhaust

    I brought this just 5 months ago and have done less than 1000 miles with it fitted. In pretty much brand new condition. I have just given it a light spray with high temp paint but it could do with another before the buyer fits it. (I ran out of paint) Looking for £140 ono and collection from...

Do they suffer with rust like...

I tried to drop the idle revs down to 650 with the air/idle screw in the back of the throttle body but no matter how far i turned it the revs wouldn't drop...

    I had a bit of nightmare today. Driving home and noticed that the temp gauge was just below red. I immediately pulled over and stopped. The expansion bottle was nearly full and steaming but no visible water dripping from the rad or hoses. Popped the rad cap off and there was no visible water. I...

    Is my Lambda faulty

    after a fail on the MOT emissions and doing a lot of reading I plugged in my diagnostics lead and took a video of the Lambda Voltage. At idle it swings between 0.2 and 0.6V but when when I raise the revs to 2.5k it swings from 0.2 to 0.9V. I'm sure I have seen somewhere on here that this is not...

    hiya all I have just attempted my first bit of welding and would appreciate a bit of advice. There is a ton of welding to do on the Pao so I decided to make a start in the wheel well before trying exterior bodywork, as its hidden and won't matter as much as it not often seen. I brought some...

    Weird happenings when cold

    Since fitting a 1.3 into my K11 I have noticed it runs a bit weird when cold. There seems to be a really bad flat spot at certain revs (don't have a Rev counter fitted) which is most noticeable at 40mph in 4th. I put my foot down and absolutely no acceleration. It's fine once I have a few miles...
