Re: nauseating odor

that's a bit odd, can't think how coolant has got up there, you sure it's not anti-freeze? I can see how that might seep through from the wiper feeds if there's a split hose near the air heater.

Re: I guess it was all to good to be true....

Unfixable, so if anyone wants bits of the engine, then they're on offer so get in touch, the rest I hope is transplantable. Picked up a dark green N reg 460 2.0i CD, very tidy, going in for full belt renewal and a quick once over tomorrow morning @ P.W Autos, Sheffield, who have been very accomodati...

Compatable parts comparrision.

Managed to source myself another 460, this one's a '95 2.0i (multi) CD with a mere 48k on the clock! I'd like to know which parts are interchangable, a chart of reference would be handy to strip the old one down with, retain any swappable parts, then sell the old one on for scrap (would be far to mu...

Re: going to look @ a 1997 1.8i s40, any pointers?

If anyone is in Leeds looking to buy S40's, save yourself the bother and leave the one in Headingly well alone, Conns: funny smelling oil with flecks of metal, almost banana yellow when spread over some paper and dried, was as black as the ace out of the case, can't think what was wrong with it. mou...

going to look @ a 1997 1.8i s40, any pointers?

Hi Guys, After stacking my beloved (see 440 thread) I need a quick replacement and have seen a ok looking S40, 1997 p reg, 114000 miles. Does anyone have anything to keep an eye out for? I'm going to to be quizzing him over cambelt maintenence as that seems to be the main thing to strip the value of...

Re: I guess it was all to good to be true....

I'm fine thanks Bill, the most irksome bit is the fact i'd spent the day before clay baring every panel and then t cut with a buffer. at least i hadn't waxed it yet i guess.

Will try CP when i've taken full stock. cheers

Re: No K&N Controlversy here?

Thanks for the quick replies, C@lvin, What are these mods you're talking about i've been trawling the forums for weeks since getting my 460 just over 2 months ago, and the only mods i could find where ECUrepro or induction kits, which don't really count imo. Maybe the difference in flow is so much m...

Re: Front CV joints?

I checked, my boot is intact, and actually looks a little newer than most of the other rubbers in contact with the outside world (same with the left side) I wonder if they were done a while back, and the right side wasn't seated properly.
