    Going to do the auto box fluid and filter next along with the diffs and transfer box. I'm ok with that but how much ATF will I need for the auto box?, I believe you can't get it all out (11 LTRs iirc).

    5 Litres for a re-fill. Check the bolts on the valve block while you have the sump off per Henry-b's advice, many were loose on mine causing flaring on shifts.

    Ta Keith. Yes, I remember the bolts being mentioned on a post somewhere aimed at me but a memory jog is useful:)

    I'll bookmark that page on Otto before he goes in for his MOT, just in case.

    Nice one Chris looks like you saved this one proper.
    I’d leave the nano alone and look through the fuelling system manually. Dodgy CPS usually starts to play up hot but okay cold butcant rule it out. inj 4 sensor will cause mil lamp to flash on dash. I’d be checking static with a dti (1/1000mil) - final adjustment of FIP must be towards the engine.
    It could be just needs a good run clean the injectors out. Redex won’t hurt use it regular and keep an eye on the clear pipe.

    I don't know what that means ^^^o_O

    Anywhoo...picked my daughter up from Walsall train station last night, now got 120 miles on the trip clock , about 80 of them on my biodiesel.
    Off to the local farmers store to get some ATF for the auto box change.
    The lumpy idle thing hasn't been an issue thus far, I set off as soon as it's started, the fast cold idle is non lumpy and as long as I don't idle in gear before a couple of minutes running she's fine. Not plugged the nano back in yet to recheck stuff but I will:eek:

    You will not get near optimum modulation with DTI, just near enough.

    Ahhhh... disaster!
    Not really:D.
    Noticed 2 things driving in the dark last night.
    I tried to flash a car in and I have no flash but I do if headlamps are off.o_O
    And secondly, my time clock doesn't light up so probably bulb gone. How do you get at that?

    The headlight problem could be simply the stalk, either faulty or the connector block.ive never had the clock out,can you access the rear of it with the glovebox removed. Hopefully someone with experience will have the answer.

    I changed the bulb in my clock once. Got a feeling I got my hand in through where the radio is enough to pop it out.

    Tried googling and rave came up. Quite a bit of plastic to remove and being as I've got to remove it all to paint or wrap next summer I'll do both jobs then.

    If the headlamps flash when off, hard to see how it can be a problem with the stalk.
    Clock can be got at with the radio out. I replaced the bulb with an ultrabright red LED
