Good news about the coolant, seems like it must have been an airlock in the system.

I reckon that's part of the issue, and me topping it up and just driving has forced it out. I think it still needs a thermostat but I can deal with it running cold for now, although maybe with more driving it will revive itself, who knows, but we shall find out!

My 75 diesel never used to get fully up to temp. New stat and bleed the system and its spot on now. Still a bit slow but i think there all like that. MPG improved too.

That's the one (I'm pretty sure). I'll change the coolant too whilst changing the stat since I'll be halfway there, and preventative maintenance and all that.

Is there a drain tap on the radiator does anyone know?

Just checked the coolant and not a drop used. Which is nice. Queuing up for fuel earlier the needle went to the normal mark and the heaters got hot! It held that all the way home too.

I also took advantage of my shitty hoover videos putting me back in the black by going £68.69 back into the red for 58l of fuel.(get paid Thursday so I'm only borrowing it from myself) After reaching the heady heights of 1,132 miles of range after I reset the computer it settled down to 670,which would be nice!


Nice! I have the same sized tank and it usually tells me (an optimistic) 350 miles range.

I have no idea what the actual range is, will try not to drive it unusually fast and see what it does! Xantia used to do 550/600 miles to 50 litres, and I don't think that was much more economical real world (goona showed 37mpg over the last few days. Showing 44 atm but I wafted home and haven't driven it again yet, so I'm ignoring that)

Just moved my car ready to try and out our old bed in it to take it to the tip tomorrow (parked behind the gate whilst it was clear) and encountered the brake thing for the first time. It's quite strange. Takes a heavy shove on the pedal to slow. Reverse was fine though.

Does it happen from repeated heavy usage of the brake boost in a short period?

Yes. Never a problem in stop start traffic, only parking.

Can consistently recreate it by pumping the pedal when stationary

It's gotta surely be either a vac leak or vac pump not pumping strongly enough?

Did you ever check the fuse on the OBD port?

It's never ever done it yet, but ive always driven off before braking. Tonight, I fired it up, moved 3 spaces with no throttle then stopped.

It seems fixable, but if it only happens rarely, then meh.

Just to back up what SiC said, the Saab does the same about revs dropping right down at 40ish when you lift off. most newer autos I've driven do much the same.

 

If you want engine braking just pop it in M & flick the switches on the wheel, I've been using that a lot the last couple of days for engine braking down hill.

Just popped our old bed to the tip, and had a tinker whilst putting the seats back up.

Switched the switched and perm live around on the head unit to see if that made it remember stuff, it didn't. Not sure if it's the rubbish head unit or car wiring.

Had a quick shufty underneath too, it's very very clean, which is nice. Did spot an undertray though, never had a car with one of those before

Also had a look and failed to spot a fuse by the obd port.

The head unit was remembering radio presets so you've probably made it not do that now

It is a rubbish unit though

Still remembers those.

Myself and a colleague sat in it earlier waiting for our work pissup with the sunshine roof open smoking fags and drinking beer, it was lovely!

Off to get very very drunk now, bye bye car
