    1994 1.0 (M) Micra stalling

    I got the car serviced the other day and that seems to have made a LOT better It also, as a rule, gets much better in the warm weather anyway, and this is hopefully on its way...

    "Scoring" noise on braking / afterwards

    It was pads and discs apparently... WHOOPS - much better now (got it done on Monday) Got my tracking done as well, it appears my vibrating steering at high speeds wasn't just 'old car disease...' :doh: it's like a sports car now... well sort of ;) Cheers for the help - and apologies for me...

    "Scoring" noise on braking / afterwards

    Evenin all I've taken the drive down home from Preston to Suffolk to see my folks, despite having a bit of a noisy micra at the moment... Every now and then (not always) there is a bit of a noise from the front wheel area when applying the brakes, which sounds like metal on metal, almost...

    Service questions

    Thanks for this guys - will pick up the stuff today For catching the oil you say a washing up bowl... where can I take it once it's out? :) Oh also - in haynes it recommends getting a bit of 5/16 inch hose so you can start the plugs back in by hand, assume this is good advice? Cheers Jim

    Service questions

    OK great thanks for those comments, much appreciated :) I guess, Frank, that means that the 10mm/300mm spark plug wrench will be OK? If I'm not being too daft, 16mm across the flats = 10mm plug I think My pockets aren't too deep as I'm just finishing uni - I'll go with what I can afford then...

    Service questions

    Hi all, Decided to give the car a bit of a service - not done it myself before but I'm feeling brave. Couple of things, is this going to be OK to get the plugs out? http://www.toolshopdirect.co.uk/item.php/sn/12242 And does it matter what brand of oil and fuel filter I pick up? Or can...

    Accelerator sticking

    Hi again all, Just a quick one - hopefully easy to fix. I've noticed the accelerator pedal sticks in position (non-depressed) sometimes, and is nearly always stuck in position when I go to drive to work in the morning It then requires a bit of pressure to un-stick it, and all is well, for...

    1994 1.0 (M) Micra stalling

    Thanks for your posts. When you say feel the HT leads... I'm not sure what they should be like - they are 'solid' i.e. you can't squeeze them in but fairly flexible I assume this is a good thing? We had the dizzy cap off the other week and sandpapered off some crud from the rotary arm and the...

    1994 1.0 (M) Micra stalling

    Thanks for this - is that the resoldering you're talking about? With the guide here: http://www.micra.com.au/technical-articles/cg13de-throttle-body-resoldering-guide.php ? If yes - what are the chances of me messing this up and shafting it altogether? Thanks again Jim

    1994 1.0 (M) Micra stalling

    Hi all, First post here and I know little to nothing about cars so please be gentle! Me and gf picked up a Micra for £600 about a month ago, it's a perfect little car but does have one annoyance. It will stall (charge light comes on, followed by oil) as you put your foot on the clutch when...
