    Agree with Dek. If a lot of oil (see original post) is escaping, it could easily be a failure of the sensor. I had this happen to me on a Ford.

    Luke,

    What steering system have you got ? Rack and pinion doesn't normally suffer from bump-steer. I had a Range Rover with the old steering box and drop link arrangement and that suffered...

    Neil,

    Just bin thinking a bit more - notwithstanding Jaguar's claim of 240 gross horsepower for the 4.2 engine at that time, it only really had about 160 bhp. Perhaps they won't take 350+ ?

    The requirement is for audible OR visual tell-tale though you can have both if you want. If you already have warning lights you don't need the sound. Section 23, para 4 of the IVA manual refers.

    Apologies if you are already aware of this, but make sure you get a Salisbury or GKN unit. Avoid the Dana unit fitted to the XJS from 1985 to 1987.

    My understanding is that if you choose to get a new licence before any legal requirement, you have to pay (£20 ?). I was forced to have a new one when I turned 70, but it was free.

    How do I unsubscribe ?

    Being of a rather boring nature, I would like to unsubscribe from a thread I once replied to so that don't continually get email messages about it. How can I do this ? :sad:

    Many thanks,

    Paul,

    To answer the second part of your question, you only need an authorised installer certificate if you have an alarm fitted to the immobiliser. An alarm is NOT required for IVA.

    Wouldn't touch Radweld with a bargepole. You might get away with using it once but why bung up your nice new engine/radiator/heater with gunge ? Find the leak and repair it properly !

    Agreed - it's only the central slot you have to worry about. I cut an old cycle brake block to size and squashed it in. They're made of very hard rubber and do this job fine.
