Here's the proof of the faulty coil pack:

I've had a look this afternoon and got them ordered for tomorrow, lets hope it doesn't rain

Fingers crossed you get the part tomorrow Stephen. I'd maybe heed Mr H's advice and do the rear lot in one go for the cost of it :)

I am Will, although that itself has caused me problems. I've managed to get Delphi ones at £25 each, but nobody has 3 in stock, so trip to St Helens for 2 and the last one at Preston. Directorate at Warrington don't have any at all.

I managed to get the fault coil pack out but can't get the replacement to sit right, purely because I can't shift the inlet manifold far enough out of the way, so trying to be clever, I moved a good one from the front bank to the rear to replace the dodgy one.

However, given my current luck, I've managed to snap the ex front coil pack, half way up, so there is now 1 part in the engine and the top half somewhere in the garage after I chucked it in disgust........

I've given up for today (bad light stopped play) as they in cricket....... I need to work out a way of being able to move the inlet manifold without disturbing the gas, could do with some "girlie" hands instead on the shovels I have :wink:

It's actually a fairly easy process to replace the coil packs, once I work out how to get the necessary room.... for my paws.... :roll:

Ahhhh... That's a bugger with the LPG. Usually the inlet just lifts right off!

Hopefully you'll get it sorted tomorrow mate. Maybe Will has tiny hands that match his height... Might be worth a call :rofl2:

David.

She done, faults cleared and road tested, something good at last. :lol:

I replaced another front one into number 6, and then put a new one at the front. I think that when the back one goes again, it can go back to the garage and I'll pay them to faff about with it. :roll:

Anyway, off for tea, before updating the Xantia blog........

I noticed last night and again this morning that she seems to be 'sucking' air from somewhere, almost like there's something not connected :roll: but I know I reconnected everything #-o she's running great though so it could just be me listening for something out of the ordinary :roll:

maybe I'm getting paranoid.......... :cry:

No it's not Steve,

That's a perfectly normal reaction following having done lots of work around the engine. Your senses become heightened...

You should see what I'm like :rofl2:

It'll be just a bit of induction roar...

But you will check all the hoses again, just to be sure...

If I check anymore, I'll wear the screws out on the jubilee clips :roll:

You didn't forget to attach the air hose to the ICV did you ? I'm assuming the ES9J4S has a separate smaller hose from the air filter box to the idle control valve like the ES9J4 does...

Leaving that hose off wouldn't affect the running in any way (except it would draw in a small amount of dirty, un-filtered air) but it would certainly make a sucking noise!

What about the vacuum hose for the fuel pressure regulator ?

Morning Simon, all the hoses are attached, I checked, double and triple checked last night. The thing is I don't recall it making the noise, but it's been a while since I've had the bonnet up, and I was trying to it yesterday been the showers, I'll have a look later, this afternoon when I get home.

By the way, first job on this is exactly the same as the Xantia, air filter off......

Right then, here's the gas figures for somebody to work out:

62.75 litres @ 65.9 pence per litre mileage covered 304.2
