    replied to Starter solenoid smoking 65 302.

I had an old Series Land Rover where the engine earth strap would get very hot on cranking the engine so I switched...

    replied to MOT Exempt
    Every car should have an annual inspection irrespective of miles travelled and where that is done should only matter depending on how competently it is done. For anyone unable to check the cars out themselves or diagnose likely causes of bumps, rattles and noises then a garage that runs a MOT test is...

    replied to Sanden AC compressor 4663
    You can safely sell an old a/c compressor with no worries. If this is an older compressor then the oil used may be mineral oil so moisture really isn't a concern. Any sensible buyer will drain and fill with fresh oil before use anyway. So long as the compressor compresses then its good to go. But, as...

    I had this with a tractor of all things. Turned out the battery posts just needed a good clean and all was then well in tractor world. Try taking the clamps off the battery and giving the inside a good abrasive clean and then again on the battery terminals.

    replied to Garage Dehumidifier
    I use one of these - a Which best buy and it works well.

    The key benefits are it can be programmed to cycle on automatically when the humidity exceeds 50% which is an important level below which rust cannot happen. It also kicks out a fair amount of heat so it always ensures the garage...

    replied to Fumes from 289 Oil Filler Cap
    I'd have a quick check you don't have any blockage in the recirculation lines from the cover to the air cleaner. The one way valve, should flow freely one way and leave you sucking the other.

    As for the smoke itself, its common to have some whisps. If you oil condition is good and not...
