flat battery

Posted 17-04-2014 at 07:38 by john baulch
we have a 1999 mgf, we have a problem with the battery continually going flat. 2 weeks ago we had the alternator replaced as well as a new battery installed, the previous battery was less than 12 months old but could not be recharged. After 3 days with the car sitting in the garage the battery was completely flat again. All the obvious has been looked at, lights, 2 radios replaced, wiring loom. The only thing that stays on is the fictory fitted alarm, can this be causing the problem and is it easy...

R25 Tappets/Hydraulic Lifters

Posted 24-03-2014 at 06:33 by david northeast
Hi all, Some advice would be really appreciated, My rover 25 2005 Has recently been in the garage for new head gasket, Prior to this it did have a slight tappet noise when cold started but nothing serious and would go away usually within a minute or so, Since having the hg repaired the tappets has become a lot more noisy and can take sometimes as long as 20 minutes to quieten down, I have spoke with the garage who done this hg job and they say it's became more noisy because the lifter has been disturbed...

Fallout..?

Posted 17-03-2014 at 10:43 by Whelk
Spent most of yesterday washing the cars. All clean and shiny and lovely. After night fell, I remembered the battery I'd left on charge in the garage. On my way out the attend to the battery I looked at the cars. Horrors! There was a coating of what looked like ash over all the vehicles. It turned to a chalky dust when I rubbed some on my finger. Damn, all that washing and polishing and that pricey autoglym shampoo and all...
