Car Mechanics August 2019

 

Welcome to the August 2019 issue of Car Mechanics! This month we take an in-depth look at what goes wrong with exhaust gas recirculation valves and how to fix them. We also look at common issues associated with gasoline direct-injection and the different types of on-demand water pumps. There’s a visit to X8R, a company devising cost-effective solutions to common problems, and look at how you can buy a secondhand black cab. There’s more buying advice for the Jeep Patriot and a guide to sourcing parts for the Audi A1. Our BMW 5-Series project has an annoying misfire that needs sorting, while our Alfa Romeo Gt blows its head gasket. There’s a DIY servicing plan for the MINI Cooper S 1.5 and 2.0 diesel, we probe the electronic diagnostics of the Volvo XC70 2.4d, and the seventh part of our Auto Electrics series looks at petrol injection. Plus all of our regular columns and features, including a chance to win one of five Snap-on FDX deep socket sets worth more than £1000.
