    Where's your Cold Air Feed?

    i've got a BMC CDA, no problems with that at all, but i've had to take out my driver side fog light and then put the cold air feed down through there. Is there anywhere else i can put the cold air feed to get a good supply of air, but yet still keep my fogs in. I've taken the other one out...

  3. Air Conditioning Not cold when stationary? Any Ideas?

    Noticed the other day that when I was waiting in traffic, the air from the vents was heating up to a point that its not chilled any more even tho it was cold when moving. The indicator on the climate is still on but just pumping warm air. As soon as Im on the move again, it goes back to a normal...

  6. Cordy 1.6 won't run when cold

    Hi, I have a '97 Cordy 1.6SX, and it's developed a problem - when the engine is cold it wont idle, and I have to hold the revs up for a bit to get it to keep running. Until it's warmed up after that it'll often stop, usually at traffic lights or somewhere really awkward. I've also noticed...
  7. Cupra R cooling fans operating when engine cold

    Hi all One morning last week my cooling fans came on when i had just started the car, i hadn't even left the drive and they were going flat out but only for around five to six seconds. Since then they keep running on and off like this at random times and when i have checked all the coolant...

    LCR cold air feed idea

    Was just wondering if anyone had looked into this before. I have just replaced a broken foglight and until now I didn't have a good idea of how to get a decent cold air feed to my dynatwist (that i havent fitted yet). with the foglight out it looks possible to use the scooped grill that...

    I really hope you can help. I have a 52 reg Leon Cupra (facelift model) and I have a problem starting the car when it's cold AND when the car is slightly on a gradient. My local dealer has had the car in twice and twice, despite it being cold, have they failed not to start it (hence my...
  11. Squeaking when cold

    Hey chaps, The car seems to squeal/squeak when cold. Coming from the pulleys/belts on the drivers side of the engine. Anyone know what this usually means. It's an 03 LCR that's covered 36k. Thanks guys! P.S. I'm suprised NO ONE else has experienced this oil leak problem. I've...

    Foul noise on cold startup

    Everytime i start the engine when its been sitting for long periods of times i get a horrible noise from the engine bay. It sounds as if there is a huge hole in the exhaust making it really loud, the revs are higher (over 1000 rpm) and the boost is higher than idle after about 2 minutes it...
  13. climate control LO cold?

    Just wondering whether my AC (climate control) is working properly. When I press AUTO and turn it down to LO (this evening - outside temp 10C) the air coming out of the vents was cool but not air con COLD. Is this right? I would have expected it to blow as cold as possible ie really cold...

    Stalls when cold...

    Only my second post and after advice already :redface: Got a 1999 Cordoba 2.0 16v ABF engine code i believe. When its cold it won't idle, it just cuts out. After a few minutes driving it's fine. Although when it's idling warm the revs do go up and down up and down of their own accord...

    Cold Air Feeds - Making the best from an incident

    I hit a pheasant and a few weeks later I washed my car and some of my grill fell out :cry: They are £43 from the dealers as you need both sides. Since I'd aquired an open cone filter I thought I may aswell make this hole bigger and make some use from it. Here's what I did... First of all I...

    Checking Oil when it's cold? Or too much Oil

    I had the 10,000 mile oil change just before christmas and as I've done a few more mile since then I thought I'd just check the oil on my lunch hour as it will have all cooled down after this morning's commute. I found that the oil was above the both the kinks in the dipstick. I thought that...
  19. mpg in cold temperatures

    My TDI Ref Sport was reading -5.0 this morning! On the 30 minutes drive to work the mpg slowly increased from 8mpg to 28mpg :confused: Does the cold weather have an effect on the mpg? I would't have thought so. Normally, on the same journey I can get around 36 - 42mpg. Last night driving...
