  1. So I scanned my car more fully with my new U281 scanner and it threw up half a dozen codes for a bunch of not very important things that were safe to erase or deal with but there's still one code that won't go away because in my haste to rid the car of any unnecessary offending accoutrements I threw away the little valve that opens the fuel tank vent and just left the electrical connector for it dangling there. Now the scanner keeps showing a tank vent thingy fault. It's nothing to worry about since my tank vent hose it now just open and it probably isn't even considered at MOT time but I was thinking that when the little electric relay/valve was still connected the car's computery brain-gubbins would have read a certain resistance across the two wires to know if it was working or not. Now with the valve itself long gone in the bin I was thinking that if I just fit an appropriate resistor between the two wires in the loose connector then it should satisfy the car's electronic whims and not register as a fault code. So I was wondering if anybody knows what sort of resistance we might be talking about here so I could fit a resistor to fool the car into thinking there's still an evaporation valve thingy there.
  2. i must be cursed. fuel tank leaking after allowing fuel to go to carbs and go through return pipe into tank, the leak is central and right onto the main anti roll bar on back. is this bar directly under the fuel filter? it only leaks when pump is running. tank is 3/4 full. soon as it stops priming , leak stops. must be fuel filter? rubber seals corroded after been sat in winters? car can't move as its a new build, , cams, rings need to be run in.
  3. Hi, I am in the middle of trying to carry out a few repairs to my 94 mk2f coupe. My old fuel tank needed to be replaced due to rust and corrosion and I have encountered a few problems while fitting the new tank. I saw a diagram on here before the same as the one attached but it had a list of what each number means, can somebody please link me to this/post this below? Thanks for your help, Vinny
  4. Hi all, Has anyone ever removed the fuel tank from a Mk2 Coupe? Mine has a leak so was just wondering how easy (or difficult!) it is. Any help would be appreciated :) Thanks!

    Fuel tank problems

    Well, I posted a while ago that I was having problems with the fuel gauge on my mark 2 bready...... one day it started reading full pretty much all the time and it would drop with fuel usage eventually to half..... Then annoyingly run out of fuel lol. Well I finally got round to trying to sort it and having taken the sender from the tank, I tested it at various levels and it works fine! Accurate to a tee infact..... Gauge on the dash works as well so I was a little puzzled. I figured that maybe something had dropped into the tank and was stopping the sender dropping all the way but as best as I can tell there was nothing in there that shouldnt be...... So I lifted the car and had a nosey at the fuel tank which it appears has a big problem, it looks as though it has been sucked in! It appears its pressurised and literally sucked itself in meaning I now have a much smaller tank than I should. Around the time this problem started there was what can only be described as a whooopm noise occasionally from the rear of the car, Im fairly convinced this was the tank pressurising and sucking in on itself. I checked exhaust, rear suspension at the time and could find nothing so this would explain...... anyway how do I fix it, how do I stop it happening and why has it happened!!
