Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

Not resolved as yet, waiting for a window when I can afford to have it off the road for a few days if necessary. There's no compelling rush to get it done, I'm hoping to confirm or eliminate the water pump as the cause of the minor coolant loss I've had on & off for a few months. That's a good sugge...

Re: Codes meaning pp2000 help

The air conditioning error is as described, the temperature sensor in the evaporator, (within the heater assembly), is faulty or disconnected. You maybe able see the actual indicated temperature on one of the engine ecu parameter pages, (you definitely can on a diesel). The other one is unfamiliar t...

Re: 406 LX 2.0 HDI

Welcome aboard. 8) Looks OK for the money. I'd suggest swapping the pollen filter too - cheap but make a big difference to the ventilation if it's been allowed to clog up. Many of them have a high biting point, doesn't necessarily mean it will be a problem. Alternator pulley has an integral clutch, ...

Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

New bolt fitted along with timing belt kit last time, 8) ..but then I changed the crank pulley last year and re-used the same one, since only normally get a new one with a belt kit. :oops: came out easily last time, went back in easily and was torqued up correctly. Didn't risk forcing it yesterday, ...

Presumably you'd need to bring it back to the UK once a year for an MOT?
Yes - MOT, service and perhaps the odd trip in the UK

Re: Dogmobile 3 The Camper

It's 'only' 9m /29'6" long. Some of the Yank RV's I tried to fall in love with were around 35' Nearest storage site with space / adequate security is at Deeping St James. :roll: Hoping next year I can moor it in central France and do the first/final 500 miles each way in the car, saving on fuel and ...

Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

Don't fancy my chances of drilling the bolt accurately enough to save the thread in the crank - not the easiest place to ensure you get it dead centre and the drill constantly on the right axis, but may have to try it if all else fails. Impact wrench may be an option, half the problem is the inabili...

Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

without resolving it one way or t'other, you'll be driving a car that could go pop! at any moment Worse than that, the crank pulley's loose so it ain't a goin nowhere. ---or wasn't. I took the semi cowardly way out and tightened it back up v e r y c a r e f u l l y. The last turn or so was almost f...

Crank pulley bolt problem

Attempting a cambelt change, I've undone the crank pulley bolt, turned it 3 or 4 revolutions but it feels like the thread's picked up. It won't re-tighten without excessive force either. Letting some WD40 soak in while I ponder. Feels like it will snap before it comes out, so now I have a dilema - I...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Coming along nicely. Can't decide whether a uniform screed will look right, (love the 'character' as it is).
That's a mighty impressive stash of firewood, but is there some form of Croatian DIY forklift type bodge used to shift it around?

Re: N75 valve on 2.2 DW12 2.2 HDi engine

Can't be certain, but I too think it's to operate the air dosers. Cant check on mine as it was removed years ago. On a 2.2 the air doser is used to bypass the intercooler, route the charge air through the air/water heat exchanger behind the radiator to assist warm up. It never operates after the coo...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Sounds like good news on the health front. Don't suppose there's any point asking you not to overdo it? (I'm just as bad, have a tear in one suprasinus tendon so it hurts like hell to lift my left arm. You can guess what fun it is unloading a truck part full of garments on overhead rails). Had a few...

Re: Going to stop lurking now...

HI & welcome aboard. 8)

406's do kinda grow on you, it'll feel like a comfy old shoe in no time.
They're very underrated load swallowing, mile eating, marvels you can run for peanuts.
Plenty of helpful info and free advice here for the asking.

What flavour 406 did you splash out on?

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Guess it's better to have that behind than in front of you?
More so this time next week.
Hope it all works out OK and there's nothing serious to worry about.
