    Heel and toe

    In the Clio I used heel and toe pretty much everywhere! I used my toe on the brake and my heel on the accelerator though, not sure if this is the right method or what? I've now got a Westfield which I cannot do the same as the brake pedal sits a lot further up than the accelerator. If you want...

    Help asap

    There's either tight or F tight. Over tightening bolts can cause plastic deformation of the thread forms, but this is always a preferred option over the alternative! I think tightening torques are really important for rotating equipment like the bolt on the crank pulley.

    3 pin tdc

    Sorry guys, you're right this is the cam sensor as I found out last night, so completely disregard the three pin comment. I've been into Renault today and their parts guy really didn't have a clue, although he did say their may have been an upgrade to the wiring loom for this part?? A new crank...

    3 pin tdc

    Can anyone offer some help? ANOTHER topic on the crank position sensor issue but I'm struggling with getting a replacement wiring plug (snapped the clip off so holding together unsuccessfully with a cable tie) as they all seem to be 2 pin connections. Mines a 58 cup with a 3 pin tdc sensor...

    Polishing the inlet internal but painting the outer?

    The finish on the inlet is a product of the manufacturing process (either sand casting or investment casting) which, as you've pointed out has a rough surface finish making a larger surface area for heat transfer to occur. Painting it black will change the emmisivity of the object and therefore...

    Whining sound when Turning off engine

    Might be, although I'd have thought it would change pitch as the engine speed increases? It's at the same pitch whatever the revs are.

    Brain Teaser

    I remember seeing this one of myth busters, I can't remember the outcome but it was a fair old effort they did for it. Something to chuck in there, the Bernoulli effect which is the theory behind why an airplane generates life isn't a law, it's just a theory that cannot be disproven yet. We...
