Post: RE: 306 HDi track project

Sorry for never responding here, I had a phenomenal amount of interest in the 12 hours the car was advertised and simply didn't think to check back. I hope your eldest finds an alternative soon.

I'd hazard a guess at a dead turbo, sounds like it's flooding the cylinders a bit, or perhaps a dodgy injector. Needs more investigating, is your exhaust oily? When it white smokes, does it stink of u...

Have a look at the fuel control relay, big brown relay behind the ecu. They're very common to have dodgy connections, unplug it and have a good look for burnt out pins or corrosion on the relay itself...

Post: RE: reducing warm up time and increacing cold day ...

These engines are massively over-cooled as standard, you'll be fine using a smaller rad so long as you keep your rad fans in working order. I've used a 1.8td fiesta rad as the ports are in a similar p...

I like those wheels, something a bit different. As the others have said, you may find they don't clear the brakes on your convertible.

The fuel returning to the tank is not filtered, it comes straight from the injectors/hp pump. My personal theory is that the swarf (it's not rust) is actually from fuel station pumps wearing. There is...

It is, but you'll need to remove the top mount and lower the engine on a jack.
