I drive a Nissan 1400 bakkie (not a champ) i drives good and then starts jerking and wants to die as soon i i give petrol it sounds like its smothering


hi, personally ..i love that bakkie. Ok you changed points condensor, petrol filter! please check.. When it cuts out 1. if the ignition coil is not hot, if so thats your problem.2. also on the carb... over the needle and seat there is a tiny filter... somtimes gets blocked. 3. also check when it stolls if the fuel pump is not hot or pull the outlet fuel from the pump
and crank the engine... note if fuel comes out sufficiently.

Seat cordoba


Cold weather ,this vehicle needs new glow plugs from the sound of description but if engine hot and its still not starting the its drawing in air ,or from experiance the fuel pump is allowing the fuel to run back and i think this year had a common rail pump with a built in lift pump ,if so then fit a non return valve in the supply and one in the return ,their small aluminium bodied valves available from the auto factor ,or you have to remove the injector pump and have it overhauled ? 600 euros plus labour for removing the pump and in the UK this could cost over a 1000 POUNDS

I have a mini 2003 that is running hot. I checked the coolant and it was empty so refilled and drove 5km and ran hot again. All the coolant was gone. Is this a crack in the hose or the radiator?


Top up coolant, drive 1k and stop. With engine idling check for telltale drops of water under engine and you can locate area of leak.

Honda getting hot. All air drained out of water system


Your positive that the radiator temp sensor is accurate? And what do you mean by hot? Range preferred, and also what it usually goes up to after driving 5km Also did you check the fan motor and the Temp switch? to turn on the fan?

I have a Seat Cordoba 2007 and while driving I get the following warnings on the dashboard: ABS brakes, handbrake and electrohydraulic system on. Who knows what is the meaning of the fault code?


go to advance auto - or auto zone etc -- get them to run the test - write down all codes - - then
take down the vin number - call the dealer and ask what the code is - and ask about any recalls

Have two, first my front defrost does not get hot, or the heat does not get how unless I am driving the car, when it is idle it blows out cold air, but once I start driving it it blows out hot, but wh


My first challenge since I became member of this site! What does your temperature gauge tell you when this is happening? For the seat, take it off disconnect the harnesses and check the cables underneath, you have a short-circuit.

Car lights wont turn off


No we have not found a solution, as our car is a SEAT Cordoba, not JETTE, because you dont have SEAT Cordoba on your list of cars, possibly because your website is US based, and you dont have SEAT,s in the US
