    AC intermittent

    Clutch gap is the gap between the clutch plate on the front of the copressor. Youve seen it pull in, then youll see the gap before the bit that pulls in, pulls in.

    Help! Horrible rear axle noises

    Are you sure its not the rear brake shoes? Sometimes the material rusts/falls of the shoes and either locks the wheel, or rattles about catching every so often.

    80 Series starts but repeatedly cuts out - 4.5 petrol.

    Coolant leak into passenger footwell.

    I did this job about 10 years ago because I got a whiff of anitfreeze every so often, and the level dropped very slowly. Basically everything in front of you, when sat in the front seats, has to come out, although the steering column just needs dropping down. Its not a pleasant job, but not...

    Auto Gearbox Oil Flow

    If there’s no oil flow its because the pumps isnt working. You wont be suffering an air lock as its a positive displacement pump.
