#8703 Surplus Spring Coils For Free

Posted by Dido on 25 August 2017 - 07:04 PM

This forum has proved indispensable for a Delta owner.
I had the misfortune of a snapped passenger side spring coil, originals come in pairs with a hefty £300 price tag. I am going for an advice I got from the forum for a suspension lowering eipache kit been backed and shipped and hopefully by next week will be fitted OK.
I will have surplus driver side and the 2 back ones old and bit rusty of course (11 reg) but can solve a problem and get a Delta back on the road.
I can find some space in the garage or the attic to keep these in case a mate in the forum needs them, can ship for what it costs.
Do you think we should set a spares thread....

#857 Known Issues And Faults

Posted by soulie147 on 14 August 2014 - 02:07 PM

Electric Windows seem to be a bit of a bone of contention.


Don't let a seller tell you  "It's probably just a fuse"  if one of your windows doesn't work,  there are no fuses.


I have spoken to a couple of other Voyager users and they say the same.

Keep the window tracks oiled so there is no resistance for window going up and down.

Seems once the tracks either end dry up,  the motors slow down and that's when problems can start.

I use some 3 in one oil,  not WD40,  and my once slow windows now nip up and down.


Just a thought!!

#10388 1St Post, Need Help With Starting/cutting Out Issues.

Posted by SJC on 31 January 2018 - 08:55 AM

So garage have fitted 4 new injectors, and it so far so good. They have tested it and cannot replicate the cutting out. I have only driven it short distance, but it starts well (when previously it didn't) and it hasn't cut out, when previously it might have.


If anything changes I will get back on here, but for anyone else who is experiencing poor starting and cutting out here is the order of events for me:


  • Fuel Filter
  • Pressure relief valve
  • Fuel filter housing and wiring loom
  • Pressure sensor on fuel rail
  • Injector testing
  • New injectors


My car has been renamed Triggers Broom!

Wouldn't he have starting issues and other random error messages if it was a dodgy earth?

How do we know that he doesn't ???? ;-)

Like the Punto and power steering system failure.. usually follows a clutch change . . The engine earth is more of a culprit than the actual power steering

Just cos he died after his breakfast, doesn't mean that it was the breakfast that killed him !!!

#10594 New Battery Result

Posted by frogland on 19 February 2018 - 05:38 PM

I've been having the the classic low fuel pressure problems in my 2.8 crd.
Hard to start,constantly having to hand prime to start and press the accelerator. I checked the filter housing for leaks,and the fuel filter everything seems ok.I did the leak back test on the relief valve on the rail and that seemed fine so I was really starting to think fuel solenoid on the pump or dribbling injectors.
Anyway today I changed the battery from a 560A 70AH to a 800A 85AH I had to chop the tray but eventually got the bigger unit in place.
Low and behold the car started without any assistance !!
After a couple of minutes the cooling fan kicked in and then stopped ( is this normal ?)
It seems like a different car.
Its early days and we'll see how it goes but it's looking promising for now.
I think i'll be looking at doing the Leedsman's battery mod as well.

#10441 2.8Crd Cutting Out Above 2.5K Rpm

Posted by Expoman on 02 February 2018 - 08:47 AM

Well.the omens are good.


Started first turn of the key last evening when I collected her from the garage and, even more significantly, first turn this morning even though it is cold outside (well, as cold as it gets here!).


I took her straight to "Cut Out" roundabout and no problems whatsoever and she seemed to running more smoothly and evenly but, of course, we have to allow here for auto-sugguestion on my part!


So, cautious optimism, I'll take her for another run later on and I'll keep you all informed.

#10231 2004 Chrysler Grand Voyager Startech General Issues?

Posted by andyb2000 on 21 January 2018 - 10:55 AM

Hi there, welcome to the club fantastic cars when they're not acting up!
My previous gv had the same problem with the door locks, quick 'fix' pop the bonnet, go to the fuse box and take the Iod fuse out for a few seconds. Back in and they'll start working.
I think it's caused by a sticky lock actuator, so if you feel like it, take door cards off and clean them up, lube them up and it might sort it.
(mine was because the rear doors had their popup locks removed as it was used as a taxi, and I suspect this was causing jamming problems)

Posted by Cassino on 20 January 2018 - 10:29 AM

Yes, you can pull off the washer bottle neck, and I have also taken off the cross brace strut.
It's a pain for sure, but I've done that change 2 or 3 times.

Posted by MikeyRules on 14 January 2018 - 09:06 PM

I live in herts , went to veloces in Barnet yesterday , they soecialise Iin Alfa’s but said I would need to return as they could not identify faults as main mechanic on hols . Have emailed autolisso in Dunstable , and will see what response I get . Glyn Hopkins in St Albans want to charge 840 pounds but are not sure it will fix the problem ! Have a new battery fitted !

Yeah I know Herts well as I used to work in Hatfield and commute from Cheshire lol. Veloces are good guys to be fair, but mainly a sales enterprise with a service bay for car prep... Autolusso are your best bet. They're well regarded in the Alfa community and know their stuff. I'd give them a call or drop in rather than email. They're usually a busy service and parts centre so you'll get a better response talking to them. As for Glyn Hopkins...I'd rather cut my head off and sh*t down the hole than give them any money!!! :lol:

#10041 Carparts4Less

Posted by mikebh8 on 14 January 2018 - 09:37 AM

Hi, yesterday the rear left brake pipe snapped ( luckily I was bleeding the brakes and not on the motorway)
So I thought I search online for a replacement.
For those that didn't know I wanted to share this:
eurocarparts is selling it with 71.99 and carparts4less with 48.03.
The point is that carparts4less belongs to Eurocarparts.

Hope it helps and always keep an I on low prices.

#10036 Egr Heat Exchanger

Posted by vausey on 13 January 2018 - 08:53 PM

For the benefit of anyone else who has the egr heat exchanger cover fail... I can confirm that the Vauxhall part 55590953 is identical and has been working a treat for the past couple of weeks with nearly 400 miles covered since it was fitted and absolutely no issues whatsoever.  Quite pleased it only cost me £30 delivered.
