Cars All Day
The E30 has had a misfire for a while and has had a new distributor cap and plugs but it persisted. The Auto sparks tested the HT leads today and says two are open circuit so his meter reads nothing but the sparks are managing to jump the gap sometimes! New leads ordered.
The central locking had stopped working on the E30, the auto sparks says there is nothing wrong with his electricity and the problem is around the drivers door lock so the door panel will have to come off sometime.
At least the ZX has working central locking again, it turned out to be the control module in the drivers door.
I took the Visa 652cc for MOT today, I needed to jump it off the drive, it has been parked up all winter, but after 10 miles I had to stop for fuel. It still had a flat battery at the pump, fortunately a very nice lorry driver gave me a push, he said he had pushed along bigger Dinky toys!
It is now having a new battery, service and rear exhaust box before it gets its MOT.
