That is very apt for many.

I don't think Mac will mind (especially if his car starts :shock:)

Re: Crank sensor location

I look in here just as much. IMO, this is the place to be as far as 16v's go. With BX's finally gathering more classic status it would be a shame to lose it after so many years and even though it is 16v specific a lot of information applies to the range.
I appreciate there are some costs though.

Re: mk 1 16v fuel pump question

Hi Mac, It does not always follow that a clicking relay is good, it may still not be working. You can check by putting power to it then see it is activating fully across the other terminals with a multimeter by checking continuity. I think the injector relay also has a bit extra inside so perhaps no...

Re: mk 1 16v fuel pump question

You may have sorted this by now but if not you may want to check the relays located in the o/s wing. There are two, one deals with the pump and the other powers the injectors once it is provided with a signal. There could be a fault with the relay or the signal getting to it originating from the cra...

Taxed again after several months on SORN, not sure how often it will get out but I made time today and had drive in the nice weather.

Re: Chances of success

Good news Vanny. At least you are using it :oops: Must feel nice knowing you can go to the car, start it and actually take it out. I planned on getting mine taxed at the start of this month but the bad weather put paid to that. Even if it had been, I would not have had the time to take it out. Perha...

Re: Chances of success

Hi Vanny, just seen this. By now you may be back and I really hope you have not seen views from the hard shoulder. Your comments made me smile, I think everyone is relieved when they get back home but I think you will have made it without issue. I bet you will have got a few looks, these cars seem t...

Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

In respect of who could be, I could but with the loooooong winter, I am not and it looks like it will stay that way until all the salt has been thoroughly washed away. It was a dry day today but my car arrived home covered in a white layer of dust. Imagine what that will do to a 28 year old. Plus so...

Re: My 16 Valve is back on the road.

Thank you Mike :P It is strange knowing I can go to the garage, turn the key and then go for a drive. I have had it a long time but it feels like a new car just know.
