Sir, Problem Statement: TOE IN AND TOE OUT ON THE REAR WHEELS The car chasis no is 056865 . The car has a"toe in " and "toe out" problems leading to vehicle vibration on speed and quick damage of the rear tyres. This has been addressed by my local mechanics (3 different auto mechanics) Below are the changes/repairs made in the process: *The current tyre sizes on the car are: "175 x 80 / R14 forthe mfront wheel while the rear wheel has 185 x 60/R14 . *We replaced the damaged bushings with another set. *The adjuster has been adjusted to the limit i.e this was done in the process of correcting the toe in and out problems. *The rear assembly was raised up i.e increase in coil rings. * Both the wheel balancing and alignment were done at the end of each repair or change of parts. All the above attempts were made but no solution yet, rather two sets of tyres fixed on the rear wheels got damaged at high frequency of replacement I need your proffessional advise or recommendations that would bring the vehicle back to it,s base condition. The mistbushi car is presently packed and locked up in my garage awaiting a real solution to this ligering problem. Your quick and detail response will be appreciated.

Hi, Can somebody help me please. My space star is perfect except the speedo overreads by 20%-30% depending on speed. Yes that is 20-30%. The mileometer overreads by the same amount. It has been like this for the last 5 years. The problem is that my insurance cover specifies a limited number of miles per annum, and each year I have to pay a surcharge.

I've recently purchased a space star 1.9 did (2003), the car lacks power when accelerating and is really poor on hills. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I had similar problem. it was first thought to be carbon build up in the catalyser, but then moving to the air intake,the filter has an air motor on the large round pipe next to it which was changed. you can test this by disconnecting the three wire plug on the top of the pipe. ken chambers from Greater Manchester
I had a similar problem, I changed fuel to know branded ones as appose to the more cheaper ones available. Worked fine for me and still does. jimbo from Blackburn with Darwen

How do you remove the central console from between the front seats so I can get at the handbrake cable adjustment nuts. I have been told that I can release the handbrake cable from the rear brakes and but I cant get enough slack to un-clip the cable , hence the need to get at the adjusting nuts at the handbrake.
the small cubby hole behind the handbrake just pops out run a blunt knife edge round to feel for the clips also the plastice shroud the covers the track undr the handbrake also just pops out from there you can get access to the handbrake cables no need to remove the whole centre console bremboy from North Lanarkshire

My car is struggling to get any power , engine management light came on & I went from 70mph to 35mph in less than 2mins nothing else happening, I bought it second hand from a private seller in Rotherham 5 days ago ???? please can anyone tell me what it could be. ??????
lost of power is definitely your turbo charger nothing else, needs placement joe from Mayo
Loss of power can result from any number of faults, including turbo if fitted. If it were me, I would contact the seller, as it is likely this fault was there before it was sold! Paul from Cambridgeshire

Yellow light comes on intermittently. Cutting out on slowing down. It will restart immediately and otherwise is going as good as ever. The fault is frightfully dangerous as I have to cross a murderous two- laned by-pass to collect grandchildren. Thanks, Ann
Ann, by "the yellow lights" I assume you mean the engine management light... if this comes on your engine can (and sounds as if it IS" go into what they call limp mode where you will lose poser. There are many reasons, some simple, some complex, why this should happen and you ought to get the vehicle connected to an OBD computer to get it fault read to see what the problem is.. it could be purely electrical connection, failed sensor or the like, but it could be something potentially more serious.

Thanks R Evans. She connected to a computer last evening and possible faults are Fuel Pump Sensor or Regulator - failing these the Pump itself. One of the best Agatha Christies I read, long before the Space Star era, was "Why didn't they ask Evans" !! Ann Ann O'Sullivan from Ireland
