  1. Can we recap on what is happening, or not happening? The temp gauge goes to half way, and no higher? Have you let the car run for long enough for thermostat to open (to get flow through the radiator). If it gets too hot (temp gauge) and the rad bottom hose is still cold, did you put the thermostat in the right way up (with the airlock toggle at the top), and right way round (if it’s the wrong way round, it won’t open)? If it’s not overheating, and ambient temperature is not letting it get too hot, the fans won’t come on, so maybe there is nothing wrong. Do you get heat in the cabin?

  2. Welcome to LOC. Nice collection of bikes [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Yeah, grab some lunch at a local pub would be cool. I work in Reading, in the building joined to the station by a footbridge. Nice easy commute. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Yeah, stones throw from Viables. How about you? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Powerflow are mentioned quite a few times if you search the forum. Some from customers, some just from a pricing perspective.
  6. I’ll keep and eye out for you if you are in Basingstoke. Not a Lexus driver anymore, so if a silver Mercedes, or blackberry VW Corrado flashes you, that’ll be me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. More than likely under the dash next to the footwell lamp (under a black cover) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. No MOT concerns, so I wouldn’t worry there. It’s more around the vast array of tailpipe shapes to choose from, and the noise you want. I loved the extra V8 burble on mine with a custom setup, but that’s not for everyone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Tony Banks in Leeds are very good for custom exhausts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. The two extra hoses for the auto transmission fluid cooler. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Great result [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Same colour as my old Gen 1 Sport. Mind you, for that money, I’d expect a working stereo [emoji853] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Doing a compression test will show if there are issues with the rings. Highly unlikely that they would all be broken. As mentioned, white smoke is not really indicative of burning oil, but of water. Blue tinted smoke would be oil. Any sludge in the water at all, or white sludge on the oil filler cap? A pressure test of the cooling system could help rule out head gasket failure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I agree with Colin, it does sound like it needs re-bleeding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
