Someone's got to keep an eye on him!

 

You're gonna be the responsible adult for this whole place?

 

 

Good luck with that!

The avensis im unsure if its interference or not. I cant justify a gamble though and i need to stay on the road. Cost wise running too this made a viable option. Thank you all for well wishes.


3SFE engine? Ie 2.0 litre is 101% non interference. I’m also playing a bit of roulette atm. New belt and off you go.

You can’t really blame it if it was overdue on either miles or duration. It’s a 3yr/60k arrangement so not particularly generous.

Anyway, keep swimming Bub. That’s the secret. Just keep fucking swimming.

Quick question i believe is carb related. Starts fine cold but if try hot starting or even in traffic with stop start it wont idle and runs really lumpy. Rest my foot on the throttle and wait it will eventually ride it out and tickover on its own. Sorted selector issue out today and this is next on list!

Renault 1400 engine? Could be fuel vaporisation (they were prone to it). Could be a missing heat shield?

Maybe running a bit rich, mine was a swine to keep running in traffic when hot. Was better once leaned off and the timing fettled. Trouble was it pinked afterwards unless run on top notch petrol!

Errrugh my 345 years ago was very crap on fuel and didn't run right. When I stripped the carb (weber I think?) there was a jet totally missing, no idea how it even worked.

 

Oh & make sure the e-clip is there to retain the throttle cable on top of the rocker cover, mine was missing & the cable jumped one day. It was doing nearly 50mph on it's own, that was fun.

 

Then it bent pushrods every few days so might not have been a good* example. But it is what I still expect from a frog lump.

I don't recall much, it was over 20 years ago I had one. To sum up my experience of a manual one -

 

Comfy seats

Crap to drive

Crap on fuel

Broke a lot

 

Can you tell I'm not keen on them?

 

How much is a belt kit on the avensis? should only take a day to sort & then you could sell one of them.

More money than i can warrant and then pissing abour trying to get it sorted. The volvo is a lot comfier than the avensis and cheaper pm overall to run so its getting weighed in.

A late 14.4E engine shouldn't be that brutal on the juice unless you just going to the shops and back on full choke all the time and gunning it (or the transmission isn't playing nice).

My averages : 14.0E (26.3) and 14.2E (26.6).

On a run and not hanging around I've had 34-odd.

Head over to www.volvo300mania.com and tap up 'mac' for info. He rebuilds 32DIRs in all its variations and knows how they work inside out.

The late ones have a fuel shut off relay on the passenger wing towards the bulkhead, the idea being that on overrun they cut the idle jet so fuel isn't wasted.

Just enjoy the waftiness of it.

Fuel vaporisation could be the cause. However I have had hot start issues on Renaults because of the crank sensor.

I nearly bought a manual 2.0 l one of those years ago , but my head was in the roof lining , I learnt later that the soft shit selling it did not know about the seat adjustment as a result I missed out owning a car I always wanted ... enjoy , they are a brick outhouse in build , seen one take out a couple of cars and park in a hedge for a rest !!
