    ECU needed!!

    Fantastic. Thank you very much mate :) useful as always :) and yes it was a matching set. 2 keys, chips, a ring and the ECU. But still wasn't working. After my 2 nightshifts I'm gonna crack on Wednesday getting it up on stands and check all the earth's as well as the pins on the ECU if no joy...

    ECU needed!!

    Surely if I have chip, ring and ecu it's plug and play? Can rings be interchanged? I bought an ECU, ring and chip and been playing about with no joy

    ECU needed!!

    Anyone got an ECU laying around? I don't seem to have spark or fuel and Torque can't even seem to find ECU. Figure that's my issue. Drove the car out the garage, moved the rear earth strap to it's correct position, seem to have broken the brown wire capacitor thing and now it won't start!!

    Whine/grinding box

    Having just got home from work I pulled up and then found it impossible to get in any gear. Let the clutch back up and revved it a little thinking it might help it slip into first and it didn't. Once revs had settled I tried again and it went into first reasonably easy, and also every subsequent...

    Whine/grinding box

    Oh not a straight swap then?? Damnit. You reckon the inner cv could be the problem? It sounds like sumat is getting chewed up in there lol and when I run the engine in gear on axle stands it defo sounds like it's coming from inside the box/diff

    Whine/grinding box

    I am willing to pay off the box over a number of months. Timing is not the best right now for the ol' girl :(

    Whine/grinding box

    Don't suppose anyone has a cheap m32 box laying around they fancy almost donating lol god knows what money I'll have on payday but I've got to do something. My car insurance is almost up for the year and I can't afford to not run a car. Give a couple of mates a lift that basically pays my petrol...

    Whine/grinding box

    There is now a bearing kinda metal on metal squeeking at times, the grinding noise has got worse, and it kinda whirs/buzzes when coasting with even no gear selected. But noticeably worse when gear is selected and it doesn't matter what gear either. Also steering makes no difference. Wth lol

    Whine/grinding box

    Gearbox apparently wasn't leaking any oil. Oil that came out was basically black with no bits in as far as I could tell, but it was hard to tell exact colour as I assumed maybe no oil so chucked some power steering fluid I had laying around in just so it had sumat while I went to get new oil...

    Whine/grinding box

    Hi all, So since running through a good few pretty big puddles (could simply be coincidence but thought I'd better mention it) with a boot disintegrated on the inner passenger driveshaft CV (again could be coincidence) I have now got a whining/griding noise through most gears. It's hard to tell...

    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.
