    Hello all, I'm new around here, please be gentle! First of all, if I'd have found this forum first, then I wouldn't have bought this car ('05 Espace 2.2dci). Seems the engines are sh*te. Bought mine recently, drove fine on test drive and drive home. Within one week it wouldn't pull until...

    As above really. The AUTO warning light flickers on/off for less than half a second occasionally. Doesn't sound bad, idles well etc. Dodgy electrics maybe? The STOP and (!) light also stay on for about 30 seconds after driving from start, but soon flicker off, so assume it's a faulty...

    Just looking for some sort of how to. Mine is a Primastar (Nisssan badged trafic) 2004 F9Q I think. I think I can see the EGR valve from the top. The valve hasn't been touched since the van was new and I want to see if I can get it running a little better by cleaning out the EGR valve. It's...

    Right, so I thought I'd tackle the simple task of cleaning the ICV on the Scenic today. Took it off no problem, gave it a wipe making sure not to force the plunger to move etc. Put it all back together ensuring the o-ring is in situ, started the car up and now it dies straight away. Runs...

When i opened the egr to check cogs they looked brand new as if they had never been used? does this sound normal? Also when I replaced it I noticed on the...

    Hi, The other day, I put a bit of oil in to my engine, and like a daft git, drove off without putting the cap back on. did about 15 miles before noticing. Luckily, didn't lose the cap, but there was oil all over the engine... I put more oil in, then drove it for another day before taking it...
