Re: Tyre Pressure Gauges

Not sure when I became so obsessed with pressures and condition of tyre's, but it is not a bad thing, I also only check them early in the morn before the sun starts to increase the pressures.. Out here in the hot sunshine, they can differ by 10 psi from sun to shade... Always makes me wonder about p...

Re: pp2000 maf sensor readings

I don't know what the readings should be,I use a different Diagnostic system and don't have any fault codes on, but I occasionally pull my MAF sensor out and give it a clean with solvent spray and airline, It doesn't do it any harm, Mine is on original MAF with 274000 miles on it.

Re: Worsening driving standards

Its not bad, A dream to drive and just enough room for 2 weeks away, That was a rather wide one from the ABI factory near Beverley UK, to just south of Calais, It was 4.76 metres wide, most of them I move are around 4 metres

Max and Min on stick are just that. I always like to run mine a few mm below max. Many many years ago I was a powerboat mechanic, and due to different angles of engine installation or operating conditions we found that in severe cases with a very full sump the crank would splash in the oil, causing ...
