My Clio 172 is in need of some love. It’s leaking a little bit of oil. It’s only a few drops on the driveway a week but still a concern.
I’ve had a look underneath and there seems to be fresh oil around the exhaust manifold gasket which has seeped down onto the o/s driveshaft and...
Hi folks figured I’d post here as I’ve searched the internet far and wide and not been successful!
I am doing a service of my girlfriends 2016 Clio DCi 1.5 and I cannot find what the right type of oil is for this model. ECP recommended 5w40, which I bought. But want to make sure it is the right...
Wondered if anyone has every used 75w90 in their 172's? Mine will be for fast road/track as a weekend toy and wondered if anyone has ever swapped out the usual expensive GL4 75w80 for something with a larger operating temp.
Seen this on eBay and its half the price of Elf stuff...
hi, this is the first post I've done on here but I've had the account a while cause its fun looking at peoples build threads to get ideas, but anyways back to the main issue..
a few months ago i was driving back from work and all of a sudden the engine management light started flashing and the...
I've read a lot of posts and can't seem to pinpoint what I'm hearing as everyone keeps going on about he diff bearings. Mine is only when the clutch is engaged in gear. Surely if it was the diff it would make noise regardless due to being connected to the driveshafts.
When on the motorway it's...
My car has a burning oil smell above 5000rpm, I've noticed this in 3rd or 4th gear. Mates following me reckon there's no blue smoke from the exhaust behind me, although they can smell it also? I know the VVT system kicks in around these revs. Dephaser and both belts and all...
Looking to change my gearbox oil as it's done over 100k miles and very much doubt it's been done before.
I know I need 3/3.1 litres and 75w-80
Question is what oil should I be looking at? Elf Tranself NFJ 75W-80 any good?
My original oil pressure switch has been removed & a dual temp & pressure block has been fitted in its place. Now I think the cable has just been left disconnected, if so does that mean my oil light would not come on? Everything seems to work fine no lights on on the dash!!
Been searching on here but I can't find a straight answer really ino people like different things etc but what is my best bet for my money on what coilovers to get for track/road use for about £600 is :)
Hi guys, I'm currently planning a project on an Iceberg Silver PH2 Clio Extreme and I'm curious about a couple things.
First of all, I used to be into Civics (A LOT) and recently decided to go over to a clio as they seem like a great building platform, on the Civic EG, most of them use these...
I've recently done an oil change and used Fuchs supersyn 5w-40, fully sythetic oil but their cheapest line.
Plans have changed and I've now decided I want to do a few trackdays over winter, car is standard power and won't be revved over 7k.
Is it a safe idea to replace oil with something like...
Does any one know how I would go about either getting stiffer Spring rates or getting the shocks upgraded as the car is predominantly a track car and I want to run slicks in the new year and I feel these are too soft or am I mistaken?
Any info be great thanks
ive had some issues with the handling of the 172 cup since I got it and took it to get the tracking done, the guy noticed it was looking for the gear selecta, could anyone shine any light on this for me as I know nothing about cars
So my car appears to have a slight misfire on cylinder 2 (by slight, I mean that it appears to be firing weakly). I changed the plugs, coil pack and leads but the problem didn't go away. Then oddly, according to my OBD2 reader the misfire shifted to cylinder 3, before shifting back to cylinder 2...
Looking for a little advice. I had the STOP and OIL lights appearing on my 182. My initial thoughts were oh crap that'll be the engine on the way out then, but after a bit of investigation I found that the Oil Level Sensor had become disconnected and I assume this is what is causing the error...
Juts a heads up for anyone that is after cheap but decent engine oil
Eurocarparts have a sale on Shell ultra oil and it is showing as £19.99 but you get 10% off that using EXTRA10 as the discount code...
I was wondering what the normal operating temperatures are for a Clio II RS Phase 1. My coolant temp indicator on my dash sits just under the middle (1 circle down from the middle).
I have also installed a Raid HP oil temp gauge with Raid HP sensor (via sandwich plate under the oil...
I'm sure I've seen fancy/uprated/aftermarket/custom breather plates somewhere but can't find any when I search lol
Anyone know of anything like this? Mines a 172 and looking the get the open neck that goes into the inlet blanked off.
Hi - I have a 182 running 5 - 40 Millers nanotech oil and I plan on doing a service.
I have 6L of Millers 10 - 60 on a shelf which I used to run in a Porsche.
I don't do many track days as I don't have time. I do lots of motorway work and rural driving. Not much town work.
I'd like to use...
On the way to work on Monday literally got 1-2 miles down the road engine not upto temp had red oil warning light come on and stop so pulled over straight away and switched engine off. Re-started it and after 1-2 minutes it came back on so limped it home dipping clutch and letting it idle and...
I damaged my sump the other day and looking to change it over the next week. Whilst it is off is there any point changing the oil pump whilst I am there?
I don't hear about anyone having problems with oil pumps but just putting the feelers out.
What options have I got to fit the cup spoiler on my raider which comes standard with by spoiler as a opinion.
Or a ktec sprint spoiler?
Don't really want to repaint a tailgate as your rarely going to match the Matt paint
I'm ordering some suspension for the R27.
Just wondering what you guys think I should go for in terms of spring rates.
AST 5100 with Coilover rear.
They recommend 60N f / 40N rear or for something a little stiffer 80N F / 80N F
Car is not stripped out, will not do many miles, some road...
