    Z22SE Random kinda intermittent rattle/knock/tap lol

    It defo sounds like lifters. Had rockers and lifters need replacing before. Locking nuts and such like. Would big ends sound like lifters? I can get a set of 8 off eBay for like 45 quid. I know big ends are cheaper but have to take the engine out haha not really up for that lol

    Z22SE Random kinda intermittent rattle/knock/tap lol

    Having checked the head and block for warping, reground valves, full head gasket set including valve stem seals, decoked head and block etc etc, changed both chains and all appendages, oil change, oil filter change, power steering fluid change, coolant change, regapped plugs and I can't think...

    Z22SE Intermittent rough idle/running after coolant hose leak and overheat

    Does this look like what you mean for sprocket bolts and the 4 smaller bolts? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273857068666

    Z22SE Intermittent rough idle/running after coolant hose leak and overheat

    Nah the manifold is fine. Had a cracked Mani for couple years but finally got a perfect second hand one from a guy breaking an SRi in Wales lol it's defo engine related. Just had a bit of good news with this as just found I'm paid up for the year now on the car insurance so that gives me an...

    Head recon/replacement

    Wondering how much it might cost me to have the head checked/skimmed if needed or just replaced. Got a problem which I'm hoping is just head gasket related but keep being told by everyone to sort the head. I'm tempted to just go all trial and error on it and rebuild the head and engine bit by...

    Z22SE Intermittent rough idle/running after coolant hose leak and overheat

    So as the title suggests I'm wondering what damage has occured. The top hose on the rad popped off (for the second time) while on my way to pick up my usual bottle of oil to satisfy a persistent very slow drip from somewhere (can't bloody find where) and by the time I'd got home the temperature...

    Start of supercharge Z22se build

    Ok so finally got a sound exhaust system after lots of problems one way or another. Got the good second hand exhaust mani on and now removed the broken studs I had and replaced them with supposed vxr studs and all round copper nuts. The airbox has been entirely deristricted and I have plans to...

    God knows what the problem is

    Gotta scroll sideways to get the different videos. 1st is general engine noise, 2nd is general revving noise and 3rd is that godawful rattle which hardly ever happens and disappears as soon as I rev it.

    God knows what the problem is

    Ok so rather perfectly, for the second day running (for once) I did the school run this morning which is literally a 3-5 minute mid strength (lol couldn't think how to put it) drive to the school. No rattle when first started but when I got back to the car and started it there it was...

    God knows what the problem is

    Hi guys. So after many little mods and tweaks and problem solving sessions I have got most little things with the Vec b fixed or replaced and improved. The car flies and only suffers with that maddening heat soak if you don't get a chance to drive literally 60 second down the road. I've seen the...

    Aircon pipe repair

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section. I wondered if anyone might have the kit local to Essex to repair a broken aluminium (I assume) joint in one of my air con pipes. I managed to source some nearly new pipework to replace bits that had perished but now realise I didn't get a peice I...

    JOM Suspension Kit

    Got thus weird knock. Only a single knock. Usually when accelerating or decelerating and turning to the right. Comes from the left side (passenger) but I wasn't able to tighten the new track rods as much as physically possible due to movement being restricted. Managed to tweak it but got the...

    JOM Suspension Kit

    Yeah it's OK I've just swapped everything over. Might do some new top mounts but gonna have to go to vx for the strut tops unfortunately. Ride is a little tight but handling is amazing now :)

    Auto open/close windows by remote

    Reckon there'd be a way of fitting it to Vec B? Or would all the ECU and everything be required?
