My car seems to be leaking from everywhere!. The worst leak appears to be from the Half Moon seals at the back of the engine. Does anybody know where I can get Aluminium/metal seals instead of the norma rubber items?
On a recent trip to France, whilst stuck in heavy traffic on a very hot day, the temperature gauge went up from its normal "halfway between the C and N" to above the N, and on stopping, the water pressure was too much for the header tank pressure cap and a lot of coolant issued from the overflow tank in the n/s/f inner wing.
I think it would be sensible to flush the system using Forte rad flush and then remove the radiator and get it professionally flushed or recored.
Can I remove the radiator without having to depressurize the air-con, and remove the condenser in order to get the radiator to lift out?
i would like to do this whilst the car is laid up for the winter and, where we live with the car on a SORN, getting to an aircon specialist legally is all but impossible, so i would like to do it myself. But only if I can leave the air-con as is and wriggle the rad out of the car.
Your advice would be invaluable and much appreciated.
Hi Can anone let me know where I can get a New or recon Cam cover for my 1993 4.0 XJS? It is the black ribbed type with the oil filler within it (not via a seperate cap). Looking online it looks like earlier cars had seperate oil filler caps and the very late or last few had a silver "flush" cam cover? Hope someone can help Many Thanks Clive Seakens
