    So I have this Laguna with a ABS-, and Airbaglamp in the dash. I'm trying to get the fault codes so I know what to fix, but I can't connect to the ECU. I have bought a 12pin to 16pin adapter so that I can connect standard obd2 readers as no one seems to have the 12pin plug. I'm using a ELM327...

    I have recently bought a 1997 Trafic for spares or repair which has the 2165cc petrol engine with injection. It is running very rich, to the point where it can die sometimes. It seems worse on idle, but I think this is just that it can cope better at higher revs. There is no diagnostic port as I...

    Hi there, Car as above, 46k miles, can't see that it's ever had the oil change on the auto box. Not horribly black but slightly brown/pink colour so think it needs doing. Couple of questions: 1. Manual says Dexron II, I have some Dexron III on the shelf from a previous car, presume no issues...

    Hi all. I hope this isn't too stupid a question and it hasn't been previously asked somewhere. The A/C compressor has failed on my 1997 Safrane (R206 DPN 2.0 Petrol) and I can't seem to find anywhere to get one. Martin (the garage mechanic) has told me that none of his sources stock this...

    Hi, - sorry its a 1.9DT - silly me! I have an oil leak in part of the engine. I'm not sure exactly where its coming from. It also looks like I have a cracked hose and if you wipe a cloth over it, it is soaked in oil. Is this the leak, or just getting lots of splash back I am not sure. However...
