  2. My car is a 2002 1.6 petrol v40 estate Yesterday, when I turned on the air con, my engine revs started surging up and down (up to 3000rpm !) without any extra pressure on the accelerator pedal. This happened both when idling and cruising speed. When I turned off the air con, then the surging stopped . I have no engine fault codes, my engine temperature is normal. The only thing I have noticed, before this started, is that the force of the air from the air con sometimes dropped off and recovered (otherwise the air is cold). I guess it can’t be the idle control valve as it also happens when cruising ? Also, as the accelerator pedal response is fine, I assume it can’t be a clogged throttle body? Any ideas if this is a classic air con problem ? Any help would be greatly appreciated !
  3. Cheers Lee, I have Vida on my birthday list. I do have a cheap diagnostics tool that was showing up P2192 system to rich aswell as the engine management light being on. 2 days in and they haven't returned.
  4. If you had VIDA or a good quality diagnostic then 100% you would have a DTC stored for ECM 6805. Disconnecting the battery will not clear the faults, so for future diagnosing to avoid any confusion, I'd have the codes properly cleared using quality diagnostics.

  11. Ok bud, if it's sold then fair do's! If not, a link, or pics, and I'm really interested! Like you say, I just paid £3.6k for one!
  12. yes it is with the date at the half past position it's a beautiful watch and it guts me to sell it but needs must at the mo The person interested is happy to get the cash out of the local bank which is good. Ebay would not allow Pay Pal not to be offered !!! and would not allow me to send a message with my mobile number in it !!
  13. Is it the blue fascia? I've literally just bought a black one!
  14. lol, I know the feeling. It's always a little sad seeing your old pride and joy. Bring some cash with you and you can take the pain in the ars back home with you.
  15. Thanks for the replies I changed my listing to cash only and ebay forces you to offer Pay Pal so the law according to chadders is cash on collection drawn from the local bank or Pay Pal signed for on delivery the problem with that is it still doesn't stop some W****r from saying it's not genuine or it was damaged!!! it's a Breitling Superocean Heritage still in warranty until March 2018 I've got everything to prove it's legit + boxes etc. Asking £1995 it's still for sale new at £3590 and in excellent condition.
  16. Oh no, you bringing my old car I may actually shed a tear!
  17. eGay and Paypal just seem to look after the buyer. It's always the seller that can get screwed by an ungenuine buyer. Out of interest, what are you selling. I've recently picked up a it of a fetish for watches

  20. Not had it in a Volvo but my 1.8T VW was a common problem, the oil feed pipe gauze got clogged up with engine sludge and wouldn't let oil be pumped round the engine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. That's a good shout, although I've said I accept Pay Pal.
  22. Personally id prefer cash on collection get one o them note checking marker pens if your worried should reduce some risk i wont sell on ebay due to paypal its too easy to get ripped off with it
  23. Hi can someone help. I'm selling an expensive watch on ebay £2000 worth of expensive watch. I've had buyer interested and ask if I'd accept cash on collection. I've said no I've seen to many fraudulent notes for that. I've stated I'd accept pay pal or CHAPS BACS transfer and the buyer can collect the item and ensure it's genuine. I'd like to know how safe the pay pal transaction is against being accused at a later date of selling something that's not genuine. I ask because I sold an item on ebay accepted pay pal all fine. The buyer then collected it about 2 weeks later this was agreed and a week or so later falsely claimed the item was faulty! and wanted a refund Pay pal / ebay would not release my funds for ages until the dispute was resolved which took forever because the buyer was a complete idiot. Messages went back and forth back and forth!! In the end I was proved to be in the right but I really don't want to be put in that situation again. Anyone help with my query?? what's your experience of this??
