Had a visit from Tony and Alan today to fit my new wishbones with me. My car has been suffering from very bad rattles for the last couple of weeks and I had to take it off the road while I ordered the new parts.

Old wishbone bush :yikes::yikes:

Tony had issues with his car running rich on LPG so I pulled it into the garage and hooked the laptop up to see what we could find

After a full assessment with graphs and data logging the rear bank is running rich because of excessive air intake possibly down to a leaking intake manifold gasket. This is disrupting the lambda sensor data causing the fuel trims to be incorrect. Tony looked very interested in what can be done if you hook computers up to cars :LOL: :LOL:

It was great to see Tony and Alan and a nice suprise visit from Phil Robbo who popped round for a brew and a natter :)

Tony I have just changed my pants after the backfire you caused :LOL:

My thanks go to Alan and Tony who gave up time to help me out. (y)(y)

See you all at Tonys soon for the key recoding!!!:ihih::ihih:

Great job and interesting stuff guys. Tony, sounds like me and you have the same issue :mad2:

Looks like it fella, should be easy fix tho,:mad2: tho Robs box o trix did say that the IMRC was slightly open, we worked out that if its not that then its almost definitely the LIM or UIM gaskets on the rear bank, tho i'm still questioning why my LPG box o trix is only affecting the rear bank and will study the wiring i did for it further :confused:
Cheers to Rob for the demo and diagnostics, and it was good to finally spend some spannering time with Al, yet another quality mech (y) nice one fella.
As for that norvern get Mr Stabby.....................good to see you again chap (y):LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL:

Oh BTW, sorry i scared the c**p out of you both with the backfire:yikes::yikes::yikes::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL:
