    crackling through speakers

    cheers T9, just to clarify for further replies, speakers have passive crossovers, and polarities are correct, gains on the headunit are turned off or zero'd, high/low pass filter up slightley to kill off the very low freqs without killing bass totally, its does this no matter what...

    Diesel Preheater on 04 Freelander TD4

    well for comparison, i get around 30-32mpg non motorway driving, with odd blast up hill holding the gears,(too clean to system lol) so if you get the same as that with the fbh or a couple of mpg either side i think it wouldnt be worth disabling it.

    Noob Focus TDi LX 1.8 2002

    that could also be a possibility, but as he said he is struggling to pick up speed over 60mph the clutch could very well be the source as to why he has a power loss well a transfer of power.

    Noob Focus TDi LX 1.8 2002

    get your clutch done as it might be slipping hence why your struggling to pick up speed. if i remember right to test the clutch for slip, put it in 4th and let the clutch out slowly f it does not stall then your clutch is slipping, you will have to read up on that tho, the other way is to...

    Heater Blower

    it seems perfectly fine, not damage whats so ever, its a older silver type block with springs, the other reason why we think it could be an ignition wire is because it just suddenly stopped working, there wasnt any trouble with the blower speed or other common resistor pack probs

    Heater Blower

    hi all, an update to this thread, im helping g1ng31989 with this at home, now we have had the resistor pack off and tested the plug for it and there was NO current at all going to the resistor pack, or to the in car controls for the heater, so im thinking that it is an ignition feed thats gone...

    wana go quicker lol

    you will only probably get small gains on the 1.4, its gonna be cheaper and more rewarding to get a 2 litre block, your options for the 1.4 is most likely pipercross air filter or equvilent, decat/sportscat exhaust, fast road cams, and remap, someone correct me if im wrong but you prob get...
