  2. Done a bit of fiddling, change a few gaskets and ecu's and its going perfect now. Unsure what exactly it was but happy that its going. Get oil in the lsd now and take it out for a wee spin.
  3. As title says , the 2.2 i just put in my manta is revving up and down. Any suggestions on why it would be doing this? Thanks, Owen
  4. Doing up my axle and wondering if anyone has 5 stud hubs for sale before i put back on the 4stud? Owen
  5. Turn up the idle screw and hopefully that may be able to stop the car from getting too low of revs to stall.

  13. exact same model as mines . unknown of the car but hopefully you find stuff out
  14. Great . thanks for the help
  15. took out the thermostat just to make sure it wasnt that , heater hoses getting warm but i took out the rad and refilled it and it seems to be a whole lot cooler now so there could of just been an airlock in the rad so all good now
  16. Yeah radiators the wrong one..the fan doesnt seem to be strong enough to pull air through the radiator . So could i just take out one of the cooling vents? would this work?
  17. naw not looking at the dash at all the engine but mainly the rad is getting really hot after a short time of running
  18. My car is overheating and could it be that the rad is a 3 core and that the fan isnt powerful enough to pull air through? any ideas?
  19. Ill see if I can get one later!
