Question: The STOP light on my 1.4 Peugeot 306 dashboard comes on infrequently, but only when I am on the motorway. Occasionaly it 'flickers' and looks as though it is shorting out. I have checked the radiator and oil and they are ok. Is this problem likely to be an electical fault?
Answer: I suppose it's easy to say yes! I'm not sure of the exact function of this system, but the object is to warn you of an impending failure issue. I'd say as long as it's all hanging together, I wouldn't worry too much. any other symptoms may mean a visit to the dealer.

Question: Hello alan I have a axgt500 and want to put a vtr bottom end on my ax gt head. I have spoke to you about this before, you said it may be possible but need to speak to cituning to confirm, I have spoke to cituning about fitting my ax gt head to vtr bottom end and they said it would be no probelm should cost about ?400-?500 fully fitted. is that about right? have sourced all the parts I have got a 30000 106 rallye gearbox got a 16000 mile vtr engine and a good ax gt head that you rebuilt for me 6000 miles ago. would you be able to have a go at it for me because cituning is in nottingham which would create alot of problems for me.if so could you give me a ball park figure as well please. many thanks tom
Answer: Hi Tom - Hopefully we could do better than "have a go!" I don't see any reason why we can't do that little job, as long as all the parts you have are in good order. Popping in for a chat is the best bet. The quote you have doesn't sound far off.

Question: Is it possible to fit a coscast head to my 2l ecotec engine?
Answer: Hi.. Assuming you mean the red top version, I think I'm safe in saying no, it isn't on..These are very different engines...

Question: Nissan B14 sentra - When hot car cuts out,swing the key restarts in one drives for a hour cuts out. was told check MAF and throttle body but got no info on how to or if these areas r relevant . Thanks For HELP
Answer: Hi.. As I can't find a B14 anywhere, I have to assume that's an import that I don't have data for. I'd suspect a crank sensor based on the failure profile.

Question: Rover 220 sli- The old engine was in the sump so I put another in its a 2l twin cam, I got it from a running 820si and changed the engine mounts but the thing won't run now, I have tried the timing from the nice Mr Haynes and it won't work, at the marker for the pully wheel the cams wont rotate, and i have tried 90 deg and that doesnt help, any top tips pse (apart from donating it to the local fireservice for chopping up)my mate recons I may need a management sys from an 820 but its definately the same engine as I took out
Answer: Assuming these are both identical, it should work. The marks line up when the engine is at 90 degrees btdc. Check it all again!
