  1. Rant Room
    Yes, I like to listen to Radio 4 sometimes when I've had enough of Radio 1 or Kerrang! Today for example, I have to finish off an essay for another qualification I am doing, so the radio is on for a bit of background and I couldn't be bothered to change channel. That is until, yet again, in my...

I climb into the car, put the key in, turn the engine turns but the key code light wont go out on the dashboard and as such the car wont start. Ok this happened a few weeks ago and I switched to...

    Well my car is booked in for its MOT on Wednesday so I thought I would go round and do a once over. Fixed the rear windscreen washer after the pipe had come off the motor. I then thought about tackling the N/S front fog light bulb as it has never worked in the time I have had the car. Drove...

  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All This one is a puzzler - car has been running really well. Went for mot the other day and they said it cut out and had run out of petrol. It was fine petrol wise and more got added but it wouldn't fire. No fuel smell either. I had the crank shaft sensor replaced a couple of months back...

    Ok ay chaps, its just not my week! After being done by the copper for having an MOT that was 1 hour and 40 minutes out of date I duly delivered my car to the MOT test station in Newcastle.

    Hello All, Haven't made a post for a while but this is driving me wild. I bought some cheap 15w40 semi to stick in for 200 miles as a flush. Got the undertray off but could I remove the bloody sump plug! It's stuck fast. It's a female hex shaped bolt that accepts an 8mm allen key, but the...

    I've got lovely a 147. With not so lovely brakes. I cannot get the rear piston to return on the caliper in order to fit new pads. I am wondering if it is because of the handbrake mechanism. suggestions to [email protected]
