    Hi Kumaran! Hope you are well. Please let me know to what address I should send you a check or what e-mail address I should Paypal the money to you for the tensioner! Turned out that your tensioner was the ONLY ONE that actually arrived; none of the others has arrived even yet! Thanks again for all of your help!

    Kumaran - I hear Tiguhano is in town ahead of the meet at the weekend which (unfortunatley) I can't make. Any chance of meeting up with the two of you before Saturday? Are you planning to be at Phil Crouch's anytime Thursday or Friday? I could meet you there....

    Yo Lee,

    T Stat seems bad. In theory even with -20 Deg C outside temp your water termp should never be below 79 Deg C.

    The last message I can see from you is from 7th Dec. Did you send me anymore ?

    PS I dont like the idea of soaping agent inthe oil or the fuel system cleaner, but hey.. How long has the oil been in there ? I would change oil every 6,000 on this car, and also only with Castrol Edge 10W-60.

    Hi Kumaran

    Did you get my last message? I'm running at 72c on highway, so a new tstat? anyway with regards to previous work carried out on the car, this was the last lot of work done on 28 July this year:
    Engine flush
    Oil change and a soaping agent put in with new oil
    pollen filters
    intensive fuel system clean
    new plugs
    oil filter
    last inspection 1 was in Feb not sure of mileage

    thanks mate

    Lee : The idling issue could be an issue and perhaps ties in with some vacuum leak and or air leak upstream of the MAFS (unmetered air)
    I get them from Just Lambda, Suppliers of zirconia and titania lambda sensors by post I think. The ones you want are Bosch 13477 but double check with me, if you like, before ordering.

    Wayne : Yes mate, keep it running on 99 (the first thing I asked you when I got out of your car is "Oi what fuel are you running ???" ...You have such a nice example of the car, feed her what she wants !! Nice meeting you too man ! We'll chat properly the next time we all meet up.

    I'll get both sensors then, where's best to get them? I don't really go to London tbh, but when its getting the sensors done i'll have a look for any leaks, too. It runs fine really, hunts around if at idle for a while, but no faults or anything on the dash display. Also I done the l/hr test properly it came up 134l/hr, thats great is it not? And also the coolant temp at highway speed when warm was just 72c, not so good, eh?

    I'll have a look at the history and get back to you mate
