    Best Monitor?

    *rubs hands with glee* cheers can you raise the level on the dell or is the height fixed? the problem with the gnr was you could only tilt it back and fourth but could not adjust height so I had to waste money on a monitor storage tray to raise it...

    Best Monitor?

    The GNR 15" LCD has done me well for 6 years but its time to upgrade... go bigger, sharper and wider.. I brought an Acer 22" from PC World but returned it.. it lacked clarity and the colours just seemed to have no depth. If that makes sense. So what do I get? The budget is £200-350 The...

    check gearbox oil too... low or no oil can trigger sensors to shut down the car check petrol sensor too... could be intermittment... hook it up and read the fault codes basically.. and let us know..

    automatic gearbox oil

    I'm going to guess around 2.5 litres... but make sure you change gears... you'll note when the gear is in D... level goes up... in P it appears low... check R too... as you don't want to over fill... the Haynes Manual is quite good on how to go about it. Worth getting one!

    K11 Micra Alarm / Remote Central Locking

    if you simply want to add r/c/l then you can grab most the bits you need from Maplin electronics e.g. the motors. If you already have r/c/l then you only need a remote kit... I thoroughly recommend the Toad RK30... I have fitted that to 3 of my cars so far.

    CVT Brushes pics for you...

    ^he's right... I'm only realising now how poorly the CVT boxes are made... proper boxes have 1, 2, 3 to select as well as D... I opened my leaking gbox and it fell apart.. once open it is a mission and a half to get the steel belt/plates set and adjusted... a few general rules to look after...

    Engine stalled yesterday while driving...

    it did it again yesterday... and this time we hooked up the comp to the gbox... the gbox was near dry... it has had a slow leak... this meant the electronic comps and sensors shut down the car to prevent wear and tear... so topped up the cvt fluid but this time the leak was worse... have a spare...
