So I recently bought this 1.2 3 cylinder on 85k miles about 4 weeks ago. Found out yesterday that the front coilovers are shot. Looks like they've been shot long before I got the car. But still passed it's m.o.t. anyone k ow where I can get an ok set for under £200? I think it has jom coil overs but need replacement ones as the fronts are completely screwed. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated
Can anyone suggest an easy to follow link that trouble shoots and fault finds the Mk2 ignition? I have installed the Saab 9-3 distributor cap, made temporary adapters for the HT leads from the plug in to the VW pin type and wired in the ignition amplifier to the hall plug and coil. So I could do with a step by step link that allows me to find where I have gone wrong or what is at fault. I have got the test plugs on top of the spark plugs so I can see if they are firing. This is the last step to getting the engine into the car because I want to make sure it runs with a carburetor on it first. One thing I'm not sure about is whether the rotor arm is correct for the Saab distributor cap. In the mean time I'm going to look at the Haynes manual to see if that's any help. Thanks for looking.
Hi all. Got a 1992 fox with a 1L carb motor for free a couple of years ago with a blown head. Got that welded up and rebuilt the motor and it's been going silky smooth ever since today.... Was going along and it just quit like I turned the key off. Did some fault finding and have power going to the big multi plug that goes to the coil, but no spark at all. Fuses under the bonnet on the passenger side are all good. What things can I check next? used to good old points so a bit lost on this one. Is the coil a common issue? I read something about a hall sensor but don't know if that's for the injection model only? Thanks in advance!!
I thought this needed a new thread as it seems to be a separate problem. Having now solved my carburettor blockage I've uncovered a new issue. I patched up the battery bay and was doing some coolant related stuff and since then intermittently no power is getting to the coil when I try to start the engine. Using my timing strobe I can see when there's a spark from the HT lead, sometimes nothing. I've tried two coils I know work so it's not them, tried new rotor arm and cap. It's a very random problem usually solved by unplugging things and plugging back in and waiting. I think either some water has got in somewhere, I've loosened an earth or the dizzy has gone potentially. I've got a spare dizzy I might try tomorrow, otherwise any idea what it could be? My coil is the cylinder one with the three prongs on each side (is the middle an earth?) It's an HZ MK2 bready Edit: The battery earth goes to the body but also branches off and heads into the cabin if that means anything.
