Re: Automatic Gearbox - Oil usage

Hi Danny, On top of this, I note you said you topped the ATF up and the sump is weeping. 95% of Auto gearbox faults are down to old, dirty ATF and filter. I will admit I don't know if the Autobox you have will have a filter, but drop the sump and you will soon know, but I would strongly recommend yo...

Re: Aluminum & and J-B weld for fixing rust ?

Hi there, I had the same issue recently, I did not want a full back to metal re-spray etc, but for a year I would knock out a bit of rust and fill and cover over, a few months down the line and the rust is showing again. I had already decided I was going to have the rust cut out, welded in new metal...

Re: Mk 3 Capri Owners in/near Bristol wanted

Wow!!! Professional photographer or not, they need a good subject to start with and your Cappa looks amazing!!! I do believe as Andrew says, I have seen your Capri before and I always love your Blue, (and the Capri of course) which the photos really pick up!!! Looks like it should have been in that ...

Re: Super unleaded or just unleaded

Hi all, (Jason) I'm a bit sad here, as I've worked out what mine runs best & worst on and I do have to say it definately runs better on Super Plus with the slightly higher octane. So best for me is BP Super Plus, it loves that and really gets down the road well, smooth and quick. Second is Shell Sup...

Re: speed limiters

Hi all, Terrible idea!!! How often does the throttle get you out of a sticky situation that braking would have put you into, this is taking control of the car away from the driver which is a bad thing. How many people here use their cruise control in road works on the motorways, so you don’t speed c...

Hi all, Very many thanks for all the kind words about my Cappa, really is very nice to hear I can tell you.
