    Hi facets are noisy if mounted direct to chassis but mounted near tank on rubber bobbins you'll only hear it with engine off

    That hose originally went to the top of the air filter - just block it off as your using a K n N filter

    Its A Smoker!

    Hi thanks for letting me know on the oil As Peter bell says 20/50 in a pinto -modern oil is just to thin My neighbour had a fiesta that used to blow blue from the exhaust and burn oil at an alarming rate -it was only a chance chat while he was -in his words filling it with oil again I noticed him using semi synthetic 10/40 He want back to a full mineral oil and all problems went with it

    Superspecies Engine Swap

    Hi are you running full injection? The reason I ask is I'd probably look at crank sensor as a car can idle for ages but when driving heat soak can cause it to break down But if full management I'd doubt you'd get flooding as inj would not fire Can you scan the car and record live data ???

    OK so to start you know it's loosing it's spark as it's still getting fuel Get a timing light clip it on a lead when it stops and see at what point it's loosing the spark If it's coil run a temp lead from battery and see if it starts If a fault is random it's a pain to find but you know your fault will happen so a logical approach should find it quite quick

    Smell Of Fuel

    All rubber hoses sweat to a certain degree it one of the reasons you don't run rubber hoses front to back
