Hi all, what an excellent forum
used it a few times but never got round to joining, well I did today and I'm glad!
Right well I'm Steve and I've just bought my dream car, the 156 2.5 V6,
I should be the happiest geezer on the planet! However, a few issues have popped up to reduce my joy
The car runs on LPG as well as petrol (I do a lot of miles) and once I reach between 4 and 5 thousand revs there's a nasty flatspot forcing me to change up a gear (thats whilst running on LPG), when running on petrol she just coughs and splutters before finally stalling!! I rang an LPG place and they think the mixture just needs altering, I hope this is just the case.
Also she likes to creak and squeak when I drive over speedbumps, bumpy roads etc, also when I brake at low speed there's a kind of scraping sound coming from near the front right wheel, no idea what that is!
I also have the creaky snapping doors which I've read about on this forum.
So there you go, I do love her and must get to the bottom of these frustrating issues, if anyone can help with any of this then thanks in advance, Steve
