As above really guys, when the STDT last fired (a while ago and it's still a work in progress) it fired straight away but we noticed fuel leaking from around the injector area - first port of call is replacing the leak off pipe but I can't get the existing pipe off. Any advice on removing it as presumably I need to keep those pieces as templates to cut new leak off pipe and replace what I've removed? FYI not a mechanic, total beginner, fine with services, trim and all that, just not so much wiring and powertrain related (learning as I go)
AaronMountford1990 posted a topic in XU 8v Engine Maintenance and Performance UpgradesAs titled, I'm looking to get the engine and box out of the car as it needs some welding doing in the bay, plus the wiring is all old and broken so it's going to be easier to assess things with the box and engine out of the way. Only thing is this would be my first engine removal, so I'm just wondering if people have any experience in this and can advise the best way to do it? Also the engines done like 183K, I was thinking whilst the engine's out it's worth sending the turbo off for maintenance? As there's zero history with the car.
Hey there guys, Since selling my GTi and buying an STDT I've become fascinated by this particular model, I'm aware that production was only for 8-9 months in 1993/1994 wasn't it? Now, I've got a L-Reg example which I thought was the only registration mark they were on but I've seen this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_jS4ucxRYk Looking at DVLA vehicle check, this bad boy isn't for this world anymore but my question is, has anyone else got an M-reg STDT? Also, are there any other colours aside Green, Grey and Gold?
Hey there guys, I think my alternator maybe shot in my STDT. It's been fine except one morning where it took maybe a second longer to fire up than usual, thinking nothing of it I drove back to my house from where I was and slightly later that day went to start the car and there was just a clicking and nothing, the ignition startup lights were lit however,. I took the battery out and charged it and sure enough when I put it back in some hours later it fired up first time, I'm not 100% sure what alternator to buy though, will a 1.8D XU7 alternator be enough for the XU7T engine? Is it worth buying the part to get fitted or just get a garage to supply and fit? If supplying it myself is cheaper/faster will this be good enough? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300566668733?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Best wishes
Hello there guys. I've just bought a 205 STDT and drove it pretty much 130 miles back to where I live without any hint of problems with the car. However, today I drove the car fine until I filled the tank and drove a little bit to visit a relative for around an hour, when starting and driving the car again I got down the road and the power started to go until it had hardly anything left, I pulled over and switched the engine off and had a look in the engine bay - nothing seemed obvious to me. I then decided to resume my journey and although I didn't lose full power it started to get a little random with the speed, almost really laggy, juddery and lazy..... Can anyone advise what's going on? Is the turbo screwed?
