  1. Thanks for all the kind words guys, you are a caring bunch on here which is a refreshing change =) Well plans scuppered for another day, the pipe from the power steering top up tank just sprung a leak yesterday, so the funds have been diverted to that 1st, also a bush at the back needs replacing, can't grumble the good old girl never lets me down mechanically & luckily I also have the 1.5 aerodeck as an emergency back up. I had been suggested I replace the dizzy, but had a sneaking suspicion it was not that, so the O2 sensor will get done 1st,if the problem persists it'll be the dizy thats next on the cards. Not got the engine management light coming on when I get the problem BTW. Bloody hell a heart attack just last week,I hope you are taking it easy Dave. I'd not want a new car myself TBH Gel, I would not change the VTI for anything even if I had money to throw at vehicles endlessly, if that were the case I'd get this on stripped to the bear bones & rebuilt from scratch, well maybe with the addition of a P30 & a little toying with the power lol, but I have a bike if I feel like going a little crazy, not that I do that often now I'm getting on a bit. Will get this bush & power steering pipe sorted & then the o2 sensor will be getting sorted. I'll report back when done to confirm if it's sorted the issue.
  2. Hello guys, I have to make a huge & sincere apology, I have not been back on to respond to the topic due to some serious health issues that had me thinking about other things than cars for several month, very very sorry about not getting back sooner, as I always reply to my posts on any forum, I hope you can forgive my tardiness. I really do appreciate the input & will be looking at getting a replacement O2 sensor sorted asap, as the standing water bit sounds like the same issue dr broon fingers crossed that'll sort the old girl out, just had all the underside welded & reinforced, so she should keep on going for a good few more years =)
  3. Hello all, I hope someone can help me. Have had this ongoing intermittent problem for over a year & it's getting worse / more frequent, I have had several mechanics have a look & no one has been able to lock down exactly what the issue is as it could be so many things,but hoping someone else on here may do. Usually it starts spluttering loosing power mid revs but has done in all rev ranges over time, now I get most times when I re fill the tank (but not always) which makes me think it's a fuel issue (injectors partially blocked etc) but have been told it could well be the distributor. It tends to go if you change gear & sometimes also clears when you give it some welly, but not always, tends to only last a few miles & then drives normal, but it's been becoming very frequent to the point of most times it's driven, so i really want to tackle the issue before it leaves me stranded. Things checked Lambda has been checked, not prefect put working within acceptable tolerances O2 sensor was checked & seemed to be working fine HT leads been out one by one at night on the engine to check for one arching New fuel filter fitted. Iridium spark plugs fitted I just don't want to spend a fortune on this that & the other in the elimination process if I can help it as I am on quite a low budget being no longer capable of work due to injuries from an RTA, but I love this car & want to keep it in good order mechanical. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
