A Heavy Subject.

Engine alone (bare engine) is well below 100 kgs as all other engines of sigma familiy are. I would say we are talking 80-ish kgs here. Adding the flywheel will bring it up closer to 100 kgs, but still keep it below that (in region of 90-ish kg) Hope that helps. Or you wanted exact figure? (which I ...

Power steering pipe

Ouch, that is SOME price and then some.... I bet it has rotten away at the front twisted section which is there just to provide for PSP switch next to A/C compressor. There is some rubber to protect it, but it is turned so that opening is at the top; the moisture and crap collect there and it is jus...

Hello from Switzerland

Hi alanet,

I would recommend checking the driveshafts. There should be no movement at all, try grabbing it by hand and turning it. There should be no movement at all (gearbox in gear, wheels on the ground, handbrake aplied)

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

With time yes. But until it does you would have erratic idle again. Since you are unsure what the problem really is, I would take all the knowns out of the equation if I could. And idling etc you can. You are putting on another throttle body which is not new, so it has some leakage around butterfly....

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

He does have another throttle body he's going to try to see if this will solve the judder issue. As it's only occuring when the accelerator pedal is slightly pushed, he thinks the throttle body might be letting in too much air. If you decide to replace the throttle body, you will have to reset the ...

Lack of posts would implicate the car is running well now? 8-)

And I was reluctant, given your impulse nature of buying all the stuff we recommended worth checking :wink: , to advise to you to check the TPS (Throttle position sensor) for the judder. The MAF is clean?

Ok, with all your modifications try now disconnecting the battery for few minutes to reset the PCM (ECU). Then start the car and let it idle until the fan comes on. In the process (while it is idling switch on the lights, cabin blower (to all positions), rear window heater, A/C if you got one and le...

No special gasket, you can put in two O-rings for the openings or cut your own gasket if needed.

Ed,

Replacing IAV - 5 min
Replacing VSS - 15 min (the battery and it's carrier have to go out)
Replacing MAF - 5 min
CV boot - that is a pig of a job as it is messy big time....

But the first 3 you can do on your own without problems...

IAV has to be somewhere on inlet manifold downstream of the throttle butterfly.

VSS is on top of gearbox and can't be relocated anywhere. But now that you have said this about cold start and not idleing at all, this is almost 100% IAV that is clogged and seized.

On a cold start, if I don't rev the engine it'll stall. When I let go of the accelerator coming up to junctions - it'll stall. It's a pain to be honest, and quite dangerous having to try and brake and accelerate whilst in neutral to keep the car going. OK, this is new diagnosis and this points to I...

On a side note - is there anywhere that sells headlight seals for the upper part of the headlight? Mine are sagging. J said it could be glued back on and one of the lights looks like it had been repaired in the past. Ed All is written. You just need to search for it.... https://www.projectpuma.com/...

I got the driveshaft seals just in case. I'll just ask him to fit them. Tempted to do the same for the VSS.
