Both Headlamps Stopped Working

Thanks Yog for providing that , as I also couldn't view the Pumapeople link. Mad Max, thanks for providing an update. I am surprised that you hadn't noticed your missing ignition light , which may have pointed you sooner to the problem. Surely with the missing ignition light , the alternator wouldn'...

hard start when cold

Hi Pete good to hear that charging the battery has helped . If you disconnected the battery for more than 1 hour whilst charging , then when you reconnect the ecu is reset and has to relearn the idling settings etc . So maybe that has improved matters also. Yes I was thinking of the CTS, however you...

Stuck in gear and the car is moving even if the clutch is pressed

Agreed it's a hydraulic clutch concentric cylinder problem. Assuming that you have sufficient fluid and you seem to hint that there may no resistance on the pedal , then the first thing to do is bleed the clutch using the bleed nipple on the lower front of the gearbox bell housing. Bleed in a simila...

hard start when cold

Hi Pete
After you do get it started and the engine has been driven a few miles eg at least 8 , is the temperature gauge sitting in the middle or in the low / i.e.lhs of the scale?
Is your temperature reading in the middle?

High revs on first cold start and not warming up.

I cannot recall previously this exact problem being posted before. I would however start by removing and cleaning the idle control valve (ICV) out with carb cleaner and refit. I am wondering if it is sticking a bit. Before removing you could try gently tapping it with some soft wood along its length...

No heat/no cold

Off the top of my head , I would expect speed 3 on the front panel to be the same as applying 12v directly to the motor. The slower 2 speeds are just dropping the voltage across the 2 resistor windings to reduce the output from them to the fan at a lower voltage . 1 speed might for example equate to...

The next stage is check your voltage at the motor with front panel switched on and ignition on.

You could also try feeding 12v directly to the fan motor and see if it works

The motors are not a common problem.

Have you checked for 12v supply and also earth at the point the resistor?
The front panel heater controllers are known also to fail though.

Obtaining shims

Any good machine shop can make them up for you on a lathe and then surface grind them down to the thickness you require and then harden them. It will of course be cheaper and easier to purchase them off the shelf . What is the diameter of the shim and thickness as I have some from a variety of engin...
