  1. Travis, one more question please, so if the red light is working properly as it is, does that mean that it cannot be a fault with the actual sender itself?
  2. Thanks, will assume the Lotus position at the weekend
  3. Mike, is this the same sender that controls the red oil warning light on the dash? If so then that red light goes out immediately the engine fires up so seems that it is OK??
  4. Thanks Mike... more happiness ahead, are we having fun yet? Shaun
  5. Thanks Michael and happy new year!! Is the sender east to get at? I understand the actual oil flow sender is a nightmare, or are they the same? shaun
  6. While blasting down a B road the accelerator pedal just went straight to the carpet?? Car was still running and idling at 1000RPM, how do I get home?? Well I thought let’s try to get home at idle speed, 36 years later I made the 3 miles back home with the longest and angriest queue of cars behind me, of course every one of them reminded me I am a nob as they sped past me.. long story short, the nipple had jumped out of the retainer at the cable end under the footwell, what a lovely job... managed to get it back in but broke 4 ribs as well, quick tip if/when you have to do this which will happen, fasten a couple of ty raps over the slot where the cable goes into the bracket, now it can’t fall out again!! So start her up and vroom vroom, all fixed, and as I stare momentarily at the oil pressure gauge, which has always worked perfectly, it goes from 3 Barr to Zero and just stops... scared me to death so I cut the engine, restarted it and the oil warning light went out immediately so I don’t think it’s pressure related, just wondered if I may have loosened something while scrambling around under the footwell? Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? ?
  7. Thanks Barry, I had considered small welds but would need to take it to a garage for that. shaun
  8. Hi, I have the PNM 2004 central exhaust grill and exhaust with the ‘lightly silenced’ boxes running with no cats, car runs great and sounds great but the drivers side exhaust keeps dropping and falling out of alignment, not a massive problem but it just looks so bad from the back with one exhaust much lower than the left side which stays in place... I have adjusted it a bazillion times and after 10 miles it’s dropped again ???, anybody else had similar issues with this??? Does not help that the banks are not connected to each other I suppose but it’s doing my head in...
  9. I have also jump started my S2 and S4 Esprits previously, anyway the car is running again, Sod's law of course, I spent 4 hours cleaning it on Sunday, so it's my fault... ?
  10. SO, battery had a shorted cell, guy reckons the trickle chargers kill the battery anyway..... so £96 later, bolted in the new battery, turned the key and... vroom vroom, started first turn, phew, looks like I dodged a bullet and got lucky... seems to be running fine, will go for a drive at the weekend to confirm but I guess if the ECU was fried it won't run at all? Anybody else use a trickle charger? Wondered if putting it on a timer for an hour a week might be enter than on all the time? listed the car on the classifieds on the Forum! Shaun
  11. Bibs, yes that's the one, magic!!! You guys are a great resource, thanks again, I assume it's safe to disconnect and change the battery when changing the internals, car won't disappear or go up in smoke/ ??
  12. Eeeek, well I don't have a time machine so it's done, unfortunately, will heed your advice in future, I took the battery to a local shop who will test it and if it's dead I will buy another and hope that's the fix, thanks for all the speedy responses. The alarm fob is seriously worn and looks like crap, can these be changed? I have one from another previous car that looks new and identical and wondered if I could change the Internals? shaun
  13. It's the red one on Eby at £30K... it's been fantastic.. just does not get used... bargain ?
  14. Just went back to check after reconnecting chattery charger... full Exorcist status... headlamp pods raised, relays ticking everywhere.. i took off the positive battery clamp... will start to check earth straps then battery, imagine somebody paid me £30K then got home to this... yuk
