Re: What do you guys think of oil extractors?

Been servicing cars for 40+ years. I too can remember seeing flushing oil but never used it. I've always followed the same procedure. First step was to get the engine nice & warm, remove the sump plug & oil filter. Leave to drip into suitable containers (washing up bowl from the kitchen sink was a p...

Re: What do you guys think of oil extractors?

My last Landrover had a built in suction tube specifically for an oil extractor. I guess it saves a lot of time & there's no need to crawl around on a cold wet concrete floor if you are just changing the oil......... Would an oil extractor remove most of the engine oil if it was stuffed down the dip...

Re: Buying a relatively new Outlander PHEV (UK)

As greendwarf suggests, an "expensive warranty required annual battery check" sounds odd. I cannot persuade my two local dealers to check the traction battery during the annual service. During my ownership of Mitsubishi Phevs, the annual service has varied between £200 and £240 depending on the serv...

Re: Front wipers won’t switch off!!!!

Do the wipers still play up if you turn off the "auto wipe" feature using either the dashboard settings or via a smartphone?

Re: Looking at roof bars and cycle carriers again

If you fit the Witter CL114 towbar, there's no bumper cut required. It was the cheapest way that I could carry 4 bicycles, but it can difficult to get access to the boot.

Re: Front offside door lock button - broken or a settings is

My 2015 front offside door (UK, drivers side) external button also failed to lock & unlock the car. It was repaired under warranty so I didn't delve any deeper. However, it was obvious that the dealer had removed the door handle. I guessed that either the button or fob proximity sensor had failed. N...

Re: Replacing aircon pump.

You won't need to add any oil unless there's been a very big leak. ;) There's very little oil in there. About 70ml. Gas is cheap. About 550g needed. R134A or R1234 depending where in the world you are. If you have a vacuum pump & a set a gauges, it's easy to do it yourself, but of course that's if y...

Re: Reset TPMS

That's a genuine Continental sensor.
I bought a set of 4 last year but managed to get a set of wheels with some good ones fitted already.
Never opened the packaging on the new sensors. :roll:
