Re: gremlin

Will try disconnecting fan tomorrow and also noticed volts meter in car drop from 3/4 to just under half when blowers on full so not sure whether alternator is not coping with the load ? Car starts fine when fan is running just quite rough until fan stops when fine again

Re: timing belt slipped a tooth ?

Mayb...

Re: timing belt slipped a tooth ?

Very interesting robou ' would I have lost power with a tooth out ' looking at cam mark it needs to be one tooth to the left haha If that makes sense drive Honda jazz so driving Volvo to my home less than a mile away felt very powerful as haven't had the pleasure of driving on a regular basis

Re: timing belt slipped a tooth ?

Thinking maybe been a tooth out a while and just a coincidence that not starting' only just realised how to set tdc up with bolt in block near flywheel and always used belt marking to align ' was slighty misfiring at idle with a few revs ' never drove car for a few years so don't really notice if no...

Re: rear crank oil seal

Removed gearbox and flywheel yesterday to access oil seal and found out the seal was to far into crankcase hopefully causing the leak 'about a cm too far :? Seal on order so hopefully after replacing to correct depth it will stop leaking oh and change the oil to something a little less thinner

Re: rear crank oil seal

Thanks for reply ' yes flywheel side and I'm hoping it has flipped on the crank so easy fix and the semi synthetic wont have helped with the leak either and hopefully lesson learnt 'had a similar problem with camshaft seal a few years ago
