Re: EGR valve discussion

A solenoid is a bit like a relay, except that solenoids are used for mechanical actuation - controlling a valve, or opening the locking pin on a door, etc. while relays obviously act as an electrical switch. Like all valves, EGR valves need a method of actuation, something to open or close them. Cou...

Re: 3rd/Third Gear problem M/T

As for changing the oil, I can offer some insight as I recently changed mine 3 times within a couple of months... First, go get a 24mm ring spanner if you haven't got one. You won't get a 24mm socket and ratchet in between the gearbox and the subframe to undo the drain plug. Trust me. Second, get on...

Re: Rotor upgrade/replacement

My rear brakes are pretty much useless atm as the pads are worn unevenly due to being sent the wrong pads, so they don't match the rotors properly. I got Bendix pads as that's what Sparesbox stocks. Performance wise not too sure, I used to get a bit of pull while braking (even with even tyre pressur...

So I guess a panicked prematurely. Error codes went away as soon as I drove 50m down the road :)

A scan tool such as an OBD2 tool? I have an OBD2 adapter and torque pro but it said there were no fault codes :(

Re: Potentially damaged wheelbearing?

So I also thought I would be smart and see if I could hear any noise even at low speeds, to try to work out which wheel it was. I put the car on jack stands and put it in first gear so the wheels could spin. After about 5 seconds the ASC/ABS lights come on, which I figured, okay, that's to be expect...

Re: Potentially damaged wheelbearing?

So I pulled my wheels off and I guess my alignment is a lot worse than I thought. Lots of uneven wear on the front tyres. Would this cause the noises? Or has the bad alignment damaged my wheel bearing?

Potentially damaged wheelbearing?

Hey all, So I've started having this strange issue with my Vrx. Occasionally, when I get the car onto the highway and can do 100+ km/h for a sustained period of time (probably a good 10 or 15 minutes) I start hearing a circular, rhythmic whistling sound that appears to come from I think the front ri...

Re: Anyone know what this is?

That's it, I've beaten the rust into submission and now it doesn't spread for fear of being shackled once more.
