Do you have a manometer on the machine and if yes, what is the reading when you are pulling a shot, does the gauge move, have you opened the side of the machine to see if the pump is turning, you might have to adjust the pressure on the pump by using the adjusting nut instead of replacing the whole thing.

My car stops suddenly and after few minutes it starts and works normally.At the beginning it was doing this around once a month,then every few days ,lately almost every day,now many times every day.

Sounds like fuel pump is ready to fail. First do the easy stuff. Change out fuel filter. If that improves then you are good to go. Secondly I would do a fuel pressure test this test will tell you if the fuel pump is weak and or about to fail. Good luck

Im looking to source a wega Mininova espresso machine in SA?

Wega is good, generally, but avoid this Mininova. Tell me if you are looking to a home machine, or for commercial use. Either way, it proved unsuitable. We gave many Mininovas to scrap dealers, having made the mistake of damaging our reputation by promoting them.

Wega espresso

Steam out of the top is a bad safety valve.

Steam out of wands when they're off is bad gaskets in the valves which usually means they need to be rebuilt.

Steam out of groups is a water blockage and/or pressure stat is going bad and causing the machine to over heat.

Can be any one of the following. Need more information to answer properly.

Wega Espresso Machine is slow to recover steam pressure

Bad pressurestat or bad heating element. PS feeds power to heating element, heating the machine til its up to pressure, which then turns the pressure stat off. If either of the two pieces are bad neither will work properly.

Could also be the machine is overfilled which causes the machine to take longer to heat up.

2000 vw golf aqy engine, starting from cold is a real nightmare its seems as if there is no fuel getting to the engine. when it dose start if it dosen't run the battery flat first. it dosen't seem to have...

It sounds like a fuel pump and/or fuel filter. Couple of reasons - if fuel filter is partially clogged fuel pump works twice as hard. Also this time of year with big temperature swings condensation (water) forms in fuel tank. If its a weak fuel pump, as pump gets old/tired it won't hold adequate pressure and drains back at night or shut down. Try the fuel filter first and run a good fuel cleaner through it prior to changing filter.

Can you damage the solenoid on a commercial wega by back flushing for 10 seconds? I have been told by the repair man that the reason our solonoid busted is because we are back flushing too much. We only...

No you cannot damage a solenoid in 10 seconds, if so then the advice that I give to all my customers who never have a problem is wrong. Have him check the pump pressure that might be set over 9 bars and or the expansion valve is not working. Here is a copy of the backwash page that I give to my customers:

Car loses power suddenly while drving

If it seems to happen after driving a while, and approximately same distance or amount of time, I'd try to duplicate symptom by driving around until it happens, or let it run at repair shop when you feel it's close to happening and have fuel pressure tested if possible. It may be fuel pump getting weak once it gets warmed up. If distance gets further on full tank, or shorter on a hotter day, that would be a good indicator. Quite often when pump is cool, first thing in the morning, it will deliver proper, or sufficient pressure, then as it gets hot from running, it will start to pump less pressure. If fuel filter hasn't been changed lately, you may want to try that and see if you get lucky. If above symptoms are not the case, get back to us with more observations of how far you get, and anything else you may notice when it happens. No check engine light comes on?

Sputering so i check fuel rail some gas doesnt want to idle occasionally will start and run then looses pressure and stall

Fill the tank to over 1/2 tank and add Chevron Techron fuel system cleaner

Do a fuel pressure test at the fuel rail.

The PSI should be 55-70 psi (or check the sticker under the hood)

Test fuel pump relay.

Check oil level and oil pressure. Low oil pressure,low oil pressure reading can stop the fuel pump from ran. It's a build in safety feature.

If it start and ran better the add only bottle of RED Iso-heat dry rule out water in fuel.

My bet is a weak fuel pump.

Fuel pump with over 110,000 miles will like to fail in a HOT day.

You are on the right track,

Shots too watery

1, Check the grind on the grinder. Imagine grounds as rocks and sand, if you are using rocks then the water will run too fast and with sand it will run too slow.
2, If using an automatic machine(water volumes are pre-measured), check to make sure that you are getting the correct volume(3ozs fro a 2ozs shot, and 4ozs for a 3ozs shot), an once of water stays in the coffee during extraction.
3, Adjust the tamp(packing pressure) of the coffee, fill the portafilter with coffee a little over the top, then level it out and tamp to the fill ring on the inside of the basket.
