  1. Soon after buying my S2/Rover Elise, it required several goes before the starter-motor would turn, e.g. turn the key and hear a click; turn again and same thing; 3rd go it would fire up without a problem. I'd like to say I fixed this... it was always 'will it start?' - gives some ansxiety when some miles from home. Last summer was great - used the car several times per week. At some point, the start-motor problem went away... the car just needed using... isn't this the best kind of fix you'll ever need?

    Heater Fix

    I managed to free my 'stuck' heater control (S2, Rover, 2002 - cable) by removing the passenger-side front flap and washer bottler. I found I could manuipulate the lever on top of the heater by-hand. So... whilst my wide attempted to meove the control from hot to cold (and back), I sprayed on some WD-40 and manipulated the control by hand - it freed after around 10s ... works fine now.
  3. Friend and I took our KSeries Midgets to Nurburgring for a spin; his 'head-gasket' went whilst we were enjoying a drive in the environs - so his car was shipped home and we carried on in mine. The symptoms were: excess gasssing was causing the coolant to be ejected, when the engine was under-load, and severe over-heating. I wasn't sure the gasket had gone, after a number of tests, but couldn't put a finger on it! Back home some weeks later, he took the head off and the gasket was in good condition; he skimmed the head and put it all back together. It still continued to lose water from the cap... and so he tried another one, and the 'head-gasket' was cured. It turned out that he'd replaced the expansion tank a couple of weeks before the trip from a top-name supplier... and they'd given him the wrong cap !!! It seemed to fit well, but clearly didn't. I wonder how many 'head-gasket-fails' are the result of something similar?
