    Engine check on permanently -no error code

    Hi All,

    The check light's been on for 10 years with no problems and no error code (it did fade in and out for a while, at first) and now that's an MOT fail!

    So I finally decided to do something...

    Fixed!

    The guys at pastparts said they'd need to see the cylinder to diagnose, so I asked my usual garage and they found a kit of parts which looked about right and cleaned it up themselves in...
  3. Need a new clutch slave cylinder... discontinued!

    Hi Guys,

    Bleeding the clutch worked a couple of years ago (Clutch-going-going-gone!), but this time all I got was a pool of clutch fluid on the concrete!

    Off goes the Beat to the local garage...

    Clutch going.. going.. gone!

    Hi Guys,

    For the last couple of weeks, the clutch bite-point has been getting closer to the carpet. Yesterday, it was so far down that I couldn't get it in gear and now, the pedal's become really...

    I was also 28 when I bought mine,

    But that was in 1992! I've still got the silly big grin.

    Great, I'll ignore the sensor, particularly When Honda want 270 with delivery in January.

    Turns out the bolt/spring/nut combo is in stock, delivered this week, 12 for a 5-pack. Result!

    The results are in! It looks as though the water pump collapsed, taking the cambelt and other bits with it. The good news (!) is that only the valves were damaged in the process.

    Thanks for finding that, Paul. I'm guessing that the temperature ratings all have to be 105C and that those voltages are minimums.

    Anybody know the easiest/quickest/chepaest way to get a replacement?

    Engine check light fades

    Anyone seen anything like this before?

    The yellow engine check light comes on at startup, stays for a while, then FADES gently as the engine warms up. Colder the day, longer it stays.
