    Hi all, I have a 98 MGF VVC and I've had a coolant leak pooling into the driver's footwell, about half a litre a day. I've taken the dash out to get a better look and it appears to be coming from a metal pipe which runs to the heater. It looks like the coolant is just exuding from the surface of...

    Woot! Yesterday evening was a filthy dirty freezing backbreaking evening, during which I (with the help of a friend) succeeded in changing the inlet maifold gasket and changed all the coolant for fresh OAT. Doing that job in the dark is certainly interesting, but we got it done in the end...

    I wondered whether anyone might be able to give me some advice on this please: The heater knob in my new TF doesn't work - the knob just swivels 360 degrees and doesn't alter the heat when the fan is on. I've tried pushing the knob in to try and get some 'traction' but it doesn't make any...

    Ok guys, so for the past few months I’ve been losing a little oil and coolant but it was nothing to worry about (high millage engine 111k) However, during this week I’ve had to do quite a lot of motorway miles and I’ve lost a hell of a lot more during the week. Each morning I would have to top...
