    Evening - it's been a while since I last posted. I still have my car 13 years now and it's been surprisingly resilient mechanically though it's had new wings and some other rust treatment. Anyhow I have a power steering ATF fluid leak on a pipe that goes from the pump to the rack. The actual...

    I'm looking at getting my first hatchback/coupe RWD car. I would love an E87 130i with hydraulic power steering but they didn't exist in 3-door form until 2007, which is when they also got electric steering. I would rather have hydraulic for better steering feel. I also wouldn't mind an E36...

    I was sure my tensioners were mechanical. However, I was watching a video of 50sKid (great YouTube content and tutorials on E46s) and he made mention of the difference between the mechanical and hydraulic tensioners. The way he described the hydraulic tensioners made mine sound like they were. I...

    Hi, been battling this issue for a week or so now. Basically car has loud tapping sound. There's also hesitation when I accelerate. I get no response from the engine and the car just bogs down. You can also see this when its idle and the car sounds like it wants to cut out but then finds it...

    Hi Guys, I have an ongoing project to get my recently purchased E46 coupe back to good condition, the last thing I need to sort is the horrible ticking of the lifters. The best way I believe is to replace them but I cant find anywhere on the web a detailed guide (Preferably with pictures) on...

    Hi, I'm thinking of fitting hydraulic handbrake to an E36 Drift car that a friend and I are building, but I've got a couple of questions. Would plumbing the hydro handbrake into the rear brake lines affect how the rear brakes work on the foot brake? What size master cylinder would be best...
