Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

IMHO the only thing that can be called reliable is a japanese car produced IN JAPAN at the end of last century. Honda civic, toyota corolla etc. of that age are truly indestructible vehicles unless put in a wall or a ditch. At this age the corossion would be number #1 problem, but if you find a one ...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

How are your contacts on MAF connector? That would be my prime point of suspicion. Since the replacement brough an improvement, it could be that resistance at connecting point is too big. Just a thought. I mean, you have replaced almost everything electric so the components should be ok...? Did you ...

So sorry to read this. That is one thing that is hunting me as well with mine; I have fear (everyday bigger and bigger) that when I do everything I wanted on the car someone drunk/drugged would crash into me...

Feel for you, get another one while it is still possible

doors wont open

If you have closed it to the second stage (deadlocks) you can't open it manually. You will need to give it some 12V if battery has died. Try reaching into the engine bay and connecting the 12V to the starter and minus to the chassis. It should help the battery and wake up the car. The other option i...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Seems to have helped the rough idling quite considerably. I drove it up and down the road for 5 mins or so. Idling dips, IAV catches and it goes back to a smooth idle. I am fully aware of the TIS recommendation, but it was written with service (as a job) for making money and saving time. I have fou...

ABS and TC lights are on

Use multimeter and check resistance. You should get something close to 1100 Ohm. Since the problem is intermittent, I would check the connectors, perhaps some corrosion has settled in...?

Puma’s Getting older... A few issues

Two typical points: cam cover seal and the crankseal. Most probably it is one of these two. The third possibility is camshaft seal leak.

Yes, sound like ABS. Check the sensor to tone ring gap. This behaviour, grinding to a stop is usually a sign of misaligned or slightly damaged tone ring (few notches are bent in). As the speed decreases so the signal weakens and at the point of irregularity it will break down i.e. disappear. The ABS...

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 ...

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)

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....

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?
