  1. MrWill


    Welcome back both. (Brilliant name for an S1 )
  2. Top job 👍 Thanks for the photo and explanation. It's always satisfying to work through and resolve these little puzzles. Or in your case "get yourself out of a sticking situation" 😉
  3. It's so weird 🤯 As above: air leak - only needs an invisible pin hole Did you change Both of the O2 sensors or just one? I'm sure there's pre and post CAT (?) Battery? Seems to be the culprit of many Elise ailments. TPS recalibration? ECU reset.. disconnect battery, to you know: 'turn off and turn it on again' (Grasping at straws now) Good luck! MrWill
  4. Hi hotpurple I'm no expert on elec-trickry but I've usually resolved issues before getting an expert in by just doing the basics Check all your connections for good fit and corrosion. Check for good earth etc If it was me I'd summise the fan coming on 30s after engine on means the ecu thinks the engine is hot so why not the obvious of a faulty temp sensor on the engine sending a false signal? Good luck MrWill
  5. That sounds like a real wrench. One car less but don't know why we have to loose a proper lotus fan too? Unless you've joined that other forum "family runaround I didn't want dot com"? I hope you get back behind the wheel of a lotus before too long Aurevoir MrWill
  6. No problem; I have one you can borrow Nick. Happy to post out or I'm in Manchester nr the trafford centre if that's of any use to you? Just pm me your address if you it posting Will
  7. I'm available for immediate adoption if you fancy another son Ray. Fully house trained. References available on request. 😆 Looks amazing, he's a lucky man. Have a great day !
  8. Like Phil said, it's impossible to discern what's going on from the vid. Another video walking around the top, pointing, commentary etc would all help. Taking the P/S back wheel and wheel arch cover off, might offer a potentially good/informative view? Good luck getting to the bottom of it MrWill
  9. A vote for Bilstein over here

  11. I have garage envy Nick. It's a garage which deserves a car rebuild project. Looks like a great buy... enjoy!
  12. Spot on Bebee. Half a tank and then you should discuss passenger weighting. Fro memory The Lotus guidance is 75kg in each seat but people sometimes ask for weighting specific to their weight and whether the car is usually driven solo or with passenger. Paul and Co at PJS will happily discuss I reckon you'll have felt the difference through the steering wheel before you've made it from the workshop to the main road 😉 MeWill
  13. Good to hear you're enjoying the car. Renewed suspension and a Proper geo can be transformative
  14. I'm sorry what? No more 175/55? For f . Gutted.
  15. Hello and welcome As above: It didn't have an oil cooler and it would be located there if it did. Have you got any pictures - both of the leak and the car ? Your usual suspects are: a) brake fluid b) damper fluid c) coolant d) washer fluid (?) e) Another car with a oil leak parks in the same spot as you. Good luck MrWill
