I used the search first, but cannot seem to find similar thread ..
Temps dropped to 0 C in my country, and i have noticed some changes in the engine.
Increase fuel consumption for an max 1 l per 100 km (guess this is normal)
Slight idle variation +/- 20-40 rpm in neutral, haven`t tried with clutch pressed.
Increased idle variation when turning the wheels (usually drops rpm to just above 500, then increase to 900, and back to 800 when not moving the wheels also when the car is not moving, and in gearbox in neutral.
Have changed 3 weeks before,some 15-20 cm in diameter metal round thing, 2-3 cm thick, with some rubber inside, i don`t know the English word for it, related to crankshaft. Can these be something related?
Also, squeaky suspension, posted something in some other tread, but i would like it having it here (hope the admins won`t be
1 st choice
Where i live a specialized store for front and rear suspension if offering me "front upper wishbones" for 50 euros each. They are made by Optima a German firm specialized for front and rear suspension.
Seller of Alfa, Fiat and Lancia part (not the official one store) is offering OEM "front upper wishbones" for 50 euros also, but i have never seen an OEM part to know if he is true or lying to me.
A specialized mechanic in rebuilding bushes and all kinds of rubber parts with more then 15 years of experience, is offering me to replace both left and right "front upper wishbones" for 50 euros incl. labor. Also give me guarantee 60.000 km. Parts that he uses are Made in Germany, he claims.
What do you think?
Also, front head bulb for positioning lights (that small bulb) right one (when you look at the car) is much fade then left one, no warning light, on dash, bad connection, need to replace ...? Some tutorial for removing the bulb?
And final, rear fog light is not working, getting the message on the dash, but now dissipated the message, but the fog light is not working, when i press the 2nd button (from right to left) there is no green light. Tried to give a little punch on the rear left light, no changes?
Thanks for your time reading the whole post, i know you hate me now
