Re: IRRATIC START WHEN COLD

I would try a different set of plugs.
A set of new plugs the other week gave a good spark but one of them when fitted was not firing.

Re: new diesel smoke limits in mot from 20th may

It does more good than harm.
Used it for years myself in many diesels I have owned.
You might notice an increase in mpg as well but it takes time for it to work it's magic lol.

I decant mine into 100mil bottles that I keep in the car and put one each time I top up the tank.

Re: Don't laugh!

I bought one some years ago.
After playing around like you as the manual wasn't of any use I got some things to work.
Then after messing up something I did a factory reset BIG mistake.
It restarted in Chinese and that took some time to sort out lol.
Keep playing but remember what you do change.

Hi

Did you resolve this as I’ve got the same issue.
I have the 3C8 035 730 module and my iPhone SE won’t connect.
The car sees it, but then says it’s incompatible.

Re: turn off 30 sec auto lock?

I also used cheap Ebay lock modules. I can get the door open alert to come on if I open the door slowly and hold it just so the latch is on the edge of the pin, but it doesnt recognise it anywhere in its travel before or after that . Frustrating but I suppose not unexpected with cheap parts. Good i...

Battery long time charge

Might sound daft but i bought a Yuasa battery for my 30d x5 just over 2 years ago. Turned out it wasn't needed so it has been sat on the bench in my shed connected to a ctek mxs 5.0 charger ever since. Does anybody think this battery will still be any good as i need one for my e90 2.0d. Any opinions...

Re: Setting TDC with no belt

The locking pin's will only go in one way.
No locking pin's try a length of string some blue-tack and a sticking plaster.
If still no joy then get yourself down the pub.
Edit
While you are doing it you might as well fit all new inc water pump.
