    Alternator problems

    Got it sorted. One of insulators the repair shop used failed and caused an internal short. All now working. Thanks for the suggestions guys.

    Alternator problems

    This is not the right alternator for a XU9J4, it should be a 1200W 80A Mitsubishi unit. Other manufacturers can have aftermarket parts that fit but your 70A Valeo unit looks suspicious.
  7. Is it really 87 RON and not 87 MON? 87 MON can be around 97-98 RON if not more so that's good for 160whp or a CR of 9.5:1.

    Alternator problems

    Overcharging is usually voltage regulator problem .. it's either bad regulator as new/replacement item . or something went wrong during the rebuild . Fix it as asap as overcharging is no good for battery life nor electrical system . Can try to order another voltage regulator and fit it by yourself , it's literary 5min. job . And see what happens .... Quite a few other alternators will fit as well (though , some need minor tweak in order to fit) .. from other newer/bigger XU petrol and XU diesel powered PSA cars (Peugeot/Citroen) . D
  10. If the petrol is so low in octane rating , and there's LPG readily available , i'd go LPG route with regards to fuel for such higher compression spec. engine . (LPG should be around 100/110 RON) D

    Alternator problems

    I'm having alternator troubles with my mi16 swapped 1991 205 GTI. Initial problems was with it not charging well as I was driving down the road. Upon first start up I would get around 14 volts, once I was out and driving this would drop down to a pretty constant 12.6 volts. Let it idle for a while and it would come back up to 13.5volts. I figure the alternator has a problem so I take it to a reputable alternator/ starter repair shop. (Not to many off the shelf options here in canada). On there test bench they say they are getting zero output from the alternator. So they rebuild it with new slip rings, voltage regulator and rectifier. I put it back in the car and start it. Now the battery light is on constantly, no charging at idle. At 2000rpm I have around 14 volts. At 3000rpm I have 15.5 volts. Any thoughts? I have rewired alot of the car as it is a hill climb and track car, but I have checked the isolator switch and the grounds to the battery. The battery is a sealed odyssey battery located under the passenger seat. I will be calling the repair shop, but they dont open for another couple of hours. Surpose to be racing at a hill climb this weekend, so time is of the essence. Thanks dave.
  12. Hi jord294, any chance you could PM me, I cant seem to send PMs. I am not sure if I need so many posts first? Keen to buy a dipstick tube as I have now seen the leak is coming from there when running.

    I know exactly what catcams say, i have one on fully mappable ECU. As i said its just been mapped. It works, not saying it doesnt, im saying to get the best of it then it really needs throttle bodies as well. The big issue of the day was pulsing in the plenum causing flat spots making mapping very difficult. Image of my final run before he gave up for the day. The standard injectors were at 100% duty cycle so no more could be gained, also see the flat spots in the map. Im putting something slightly milder in and going back with bigger injectors. There is more power available in the engine for sure.
  14. Thanks bud! Hah, this one is staying with me to the grave I'm afraid! Few jobs done this week that were well overdue: - New thermostat housing cap, new thermostat and seal. Had a minor coolant leak for pretty much the last 6 years - now finally solved, really should have done this before! - Replaced rubber hosing from fuel pump to pipes under car. Old ones were perishing and definately needed doing! - Replaced oil tower and oil filler pipe. The filler pipe had split at the bottom, did an oil change, chatting away to my mate and didn't notice oil was pissing out over the floor! Baker BM to the rescue with a new pipe and all is well again. Just about to hit 190K miles.
  15. I can't see it being any good if it's 87 RON. I've done some Googling and it's very hard to work out exactly what type of fuel you have in Iran.
  16. She's a beauty mate. Would you consider selling please? This forum used to be great now it's dead and covered in adverts?

    Xu9j2 high performace

    # ONLY for dirt track applications and pro street use with adjustable engine management or carburettors http://www.catcams.com/products/camshafts/datasheet.aspx?ENGINE_id=115&CAMSETUP_id=298 That's the reason why Catcams states the above. I have the 4900365 and that is doable with the original Motronic management.

    I have that camshaft, just been mapped today and have serious problems with flat spots at 2700 rpm and 5000 rpm, also couldnt hit peak power as it is running out of revs, still climbing at 7k. We put it down to the cam profile with the plenum, it really needs ITBs and uprated valve springs. That was 99 ron fuel and 11:1 compression

    What Have You Done To Your 205 Today?

    Custom Brake Disks

    Very nice setup those, will fit under many 14" wheel, the 206 alcon 295mm will go under a 15".

    Thanks for all the help, seems Porters idea above has won the vote. Seems like the proper way to go about it. Ben from Godspeed sorted me out a set with CL6 pads.

    Wrong Air?

    Sorry my bad. Gti6 engine. ran it hot with cap off - started boiling over when I turned the engine off again. I’ll let it rest for a few days and see if it behaves then. /M

    Wrong Air?

    I usually bleed them like Damir says, but to add to that I also bleed it at the thermostat housing. Assuming it is an eight valve engine, very near the "bend" in the spark plug cable there is a allen head bolt which bleeds the thermostat. You do not need to remove that fully to bleed, because the bolt is slotted. Setting the heater to hot is unnecessary since the 205 doesn't have a valve for the heater matrix. Officially the PSA procedure wants you to bleed during and after the fans have kicked in three times.
  25. This still from the video footage of the crash is GOLD!

    Another front wiper washer problem!

    Sorted. Took the washer bottle out, thoroughly cleaned it and the pump which were full of years old algae crap, polished up the pump contacts with sandpaper, did the best I could with the plug and a micro screwdriver, put it all back together and hey presto, all working. Happy days. Can book in the mot now!

    Wasted spark igniter

    Absolutely yes , need to mount it on the alu. plate with some heat sink paste/jelly in between (smear some on the back side of the module) , otherwise it'll overheat and burn out . D

    Wasted spark igniter

    Ok, bought a new dual channel ignition amp, listed as fitting all sorts including s16. Do they all need to be on a plate as a heat sink or is that just the alloy body gti ones?
