    Hello, Last week I posted about a leak which is believed to be from the CAS seal which I will be getting repaired next week hopefully. Whilst checking underneath the car yesterday, I noticed another leak at the front right side next to the Alternator and Accessory Belts. It is another slow...

    I had noticed a slow leak a while ago, losing oil very slowly, no need to top up between services. But I intend on turboing the car soon so the clutch will be updated, so while the gearbox is off I'll have a look at changing the rear main seal. I cleaned it all up and left it for a while to...

    To cut a long story short... I've been battling constant leaks for over a year now so today I took the engine out to try and fix them. I was hoping it would become obvious with the engine out but it really hasn't. There's some videos below so you can see the extent of the problem. Leaks I've...

    So, I have been plagued by an oil leak for a while now. I replaced the camshaft front seals, front crankshaft seal, cam belt, water pump, pulleys, aux. belts, CAS seal and cam cover seal around 2,000 miles ago. Long story short, I incorrectly seated the cam cover seal thereby cutting it when i...

    Come on own up, who has gone FI and not done a boost leak test? I've been boosted for almost a year and only got round to doing it today. My setup is below: It consists of a PVC end cap which has a tyre valve and a pressure gauge screwed into it. The tyre valve is ideal as it has a nut on...

    Hi all, Hoping you can help me out.. I've got a 1991 Roadster that has started leaking coolant from the front of the engine. There appears to be a crack in the engine that is then dripping down onto the belts. This is then sending the coolant flying over the entire engine bay. The coolant is a...

    Hi Typical really, changed my hoses to the AK automotive ones. Thought everything was great, until I saw a puddle of coolant on the floor in the morning. Looks like it is the little steel pipe connected to the water inlet pipe. I don't think that bit is repairable so looking like I'm going to...

    I have a 1989 NA, I have replaced both cam cover gasket and the cam angle O ring. I still have a small oil leak and it seems to be coming from the front of the engine. It is literally 2 drops a week, but is annoying me because it is making a mess of my garage floor! Any help appreciated, Adam.

    Sometimes when it rains and I first drive the car (a 3.5) a drop of water will fall on to my right foot, there's not much and I can't fathom out where it is coming from but has anybody else had this ptroblem? Is it likely to be a leak or condensation? :( Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Jx
