    Burnt sparkplug?

    Don't leave it too long next time.....lol
  3. Smart phones, dumb phones.....I dislike 'em all equally....so the Bluetooth kit is a Godsend to me. My cigarette lighter receptor is a bit hit and miss (worn after 18 years of use)......with a bit of luck I might effect a permanent repair. I have lined up hundreds of MP3 single tracks to put onto a couple of midi SD cards.....the unit supports up to 32 gig.....to stop me getting bored....I'll use several 8 gig SD cards. My brother (who sent me the Bluetooth unit) ended up buying 5 units (his neighbours and friends asked him to get them one after they saw how well they worked).
  4. I have a Qualcomm bluetooth unit and love it. It plays my MP3 music from the SDHC slot.....pairing my mobile was a doddle.....all in all, it's a brilliant addition to my old jamjar. Excellent prize for someone that wants to keep their pride and joy standard

    Front Passenger Door "Clicking" Noise

    Hi and welcome Rissy, might be wise to have a good inspection of the underside of your car......rust or a fracture could give similar symptoms. Good luck with finding the irritating noise

  12. Good old DD comes to the rescue ........pity the bolt snapped but such is the way with all things mechanical. A quick round of golf with the Bank Manager should see you right.

    CHEAP Civic Aerodeck

    My money is still on the radiator being the problem......your gas tester will tell a multitude. Yes, a faulty pump impellor could give the symptoms you describe but I recommend you remove the radiator and flush it through before you start throwing money at a problem that may not exist. Like already mentioned you may have air in the system......Civics are notoriously difficult to bleed so it's advisable to have a look at the guide for getting all air out of the system.

    CHEAP Civic Aerodeck

    Running hot at Motorway speeds suggests a blocked radiator, you've already dismissed the thermostat so you could try back flushing the radiator to see if efficiency improves. You can easily rule out cylinder head gasket pending failure by having the fumes from your hot radiator analysed. Good luck
