My temperature gauge gets to first mark then just drops back down. I tried to put a thermostat in but it`s still doing the same. Put hand on matrix pipes, one on driver`s side hot, one on the other side cold. I took pipe off, water runs out okay so it`s not blocked. I have a 03 1.6 duel fuel combo. Any help please?

The clutch races all the time. Friend says clutch needs replacing and will cost a great deal. However black plastic item which connects clutch to gearbox was fitted a few months back by roadside AA when I lost all gears and they reckoned it would be OK for a couple of years. Is there adjustment of these clutches or is the racing of the clutch in your opinion a sign it needs renewal?

My radio has just stopped working. I`ve replaced the fuse in the back of the stereo and I`ve checked the fuse next to the battery but I still can`t get power to the radio. The outside fuse box lid has no diagram to show which fuse is for the radio so I took all out 1 by 1 and checked them, but all look fine. Is there another fuse box in this van as I`ve looked high and low but no luck? Please help, it`s doing my head in using my phone for music

I have a new barrel to fit but the only problem is getting the old barrel out. I know that it goes into position 1 then you have to press the tb down and the barrel usually pulls out. Here's the problem, the releasing tab has broken! Now I can't get the barrel out, any ideas guys?

I have a 2002 Vauxhall Combo 1.7di. Everything will be running fine then the orange car with the spanner through it lights up and the revs increase. It usually ticks over at 800rpm but goes up to around 1500rpm while standing. After a few seconds it releases and drops back to 800rpm until I move off and when I stop again it`s back up to 1500rpm. I think it`s gone into limp mode?

Hi I have an ex post office Combo 1.3 diesel van 2004. It`s been a problem to start since I've had it. If I turn it over it will start but only after about 20 to 30 secs or more, if I stop after 15 secs and reheat it starts. I've changed everything, the larger relay by the headlight, the plugs, the injector bar, the fuel pump in the tank. I've just got a four pin relay for the heaters but there's no info in the manual to say which one it is, there are three 70a relays in the fuse box but I don't know if these are related to the heater plugs? A mechanic told me to change this four pin relay as it could be this. Can someone please tell me where it goes as I've looked everywhere? Thanks.

I had the same problem. I used to hear water sloshing about in the bulkhead and pouring in behind the glove box. Turned out to be the seal around the plastic box where all the wiring enters the bulkhead on the passenger side. I just sealed it up with silicone, never leaked since eddie from Essex

Hi there is normally 2 drainage holes under the bonnet near bottom of window screen if one or both are blocked with leaves and other debris the water that comes off your roof and window screen when it rains will find the next easiest route to escape and thats how it ends up inside the car. So just give them a clean out and all will be fine Danny from Lincolnshire

My driver`s side footwell is filling up because the seal around the brake servo is perished and allowing water in. It`s located under the removable panel where the wipers are and inside right up by the foot pedals, it's a pig of a job because of access! I blocked off the drain hole and poured some roof sealer in, cured the leak. Sounds a bit bodgy but that was a year ago and it's still good! John from Cumbria

Passenger side next to battery is a junction box containing electronic. The seal around the box wasn't secure. resealed and problem went away. Still have ongoing problem with r/h indicator that goes away in dry weather. I suspect this may be cause by damp in same box. Strange that there is now cover over box and water from windscreen is free to run over this junction box. ED from Pembrokeshire

Hi my 2004 Vauxhall Combo has no Mileage showing, it doesn't light up and the fuel gauge doesn't work, also all the lights on the right hand side of the dashboard either flicker when driving or stay on. I've tried checking various wires i.e. behind the dash itself, making sure the connector isn't loose and EDU, Also I did the test putting my foot on the brake and accelerator, whilst turning the ignition key 2-3 clicks the number of flashes from the spanner light are as follows : 0370 1616 0650 0704 PS I haven't had the vehicle that long, could it be possible the clock was changed and if so would it need programming ?

mine was like that losing power on accelaration ,, it was the airflow meter, 20 pound scrap yard , it fits on the round tube coming out of the air intake its tube shaped couple inches in diameter, what it does is mix the correct amount of air for the fuel mix, if its goosed its like riding a moped with the choke full on type thing easy to unscrew both ends and pop another in, if you look down it you can see a very fine wire going across the middle some people think you can carefully clean this i didnt bother just got another and the difference was instant accelleration again. bilbo from Darlington

My Stating motor packed up, changed the starter motor , but it bunt out 2 weeks later. I have been told it was the ignition switch. any body got any idea's?

Answers

Yeah I had the same problem, the ignition switch sticks and causes the starter to stay engaged. Replace the switch the same time as the starter and all will be good. You will need to take ignition barrel out first, then remove old switch, then marry up the barrel to the new switch. This is the easiest way, if you just replace the switch you will end up with it not aligning properly and your electric windows won`t work, good luck t john from Pembrokeshire
