SOURCE: How do you change the clutch and pressure plate?

Easily. Remove the gear box, the roller bearing is fitted to the box, so yoou dont have to worry. The clutch and plate is fixed to the engine held in with hex nuts, you'll need allan keys to remove them, remove the bolts and the clutch and pressure plate will fall away. Take the new one from the box, being carefull not to contaminate with grease or oil that is on your hands, fit the pressure plate into the clutch assembly and line up to the engine and loosly tighten up so the pressure plate will move with a little resistance. This is where the fun starts. Get your socket set handle and push it through the housing into the engine. Centralise the pressure plate as accurately as you can. Offer the gearbox slowly to the clutch and try to push it home. The pressureplate should have enought movement in it to move slightly to allow the gear box to fit. Once fitted, slowly and levelly remove the box, then tighten all of the clutch housing into place. Refit the box, tighten and go for a cup of coffee to congratulate yourself! The only other adjustments you have to make are to the clutch cable. Loosen the lock nut, loosen the adjuster bolt, tighten the adjuster bolt until the cable becomes taught, depress the clutch and you should feel the clutch release. Tighten the locknot and that's it. Hope all goes well, any problems let me know any problems let me know and I'll help. Regards, Dave.

Kia Rio5 2009 No spark on any spark plugs. Code P0339 showed up after i scanned, so i changed the camshaft sensor. Still no spark. Verified all relays. Could a weak battery, key chip, ecu.. ?


This one is kind of hard to answer. But I'll do my best with some suggestion.
First, let's find out if the ECU is OK. Put the key in the ignition and turn it without cranking the car, check the display, if you see the check engine lit up, then the ECU is fine. If it doesn't lit up, then your problem is the ECU.
Also, check the spark plug cables, check the distributor cap.
Check the relays, I'm not sure if any of the relays is related to the engine.
Also, make sure the alarm is working fine. If it's faulty, maybe it won't let any current goo thru.

Nissan Terrano Diesel 55 plate engine management light comes on 10 mins after first journey and sounds like a diesel knock although does not seem to effect performance and there is no excessive smoke.


Probably you might face a problem on the injection pump with the Advance or retar positioning,and I believe that is controlled by the vehicle ECU. The Diesel Knocking you receive should be this fault.

Does a kia rio diesel 56 plate need the timing belt changing or has it got a chain


The engine which is made by Mercedes is not belt driven, it has a timing chain, timing chains never need to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt.
