lol people are too quick, you can try the fuel filter.. About $10. When was the last time it was changed? If it ain't broke not worth fixing but I wouldn't want to break down anywhere. :? If it had to break, be better if it broke by the time I can get rid of mine.. Can pretty much have it. :P


The new fuel filter is sitting in my boot :D It's probably never been changed, because it's jammed in so tight I can't get it out! Even Waggin can't get it to budge! (he had a go because he thought my "weak muscles" had something to do with it) hehe

I find the no-name brands are often dearer anyway!
I usually fill up with Shell or Caltex, depending on whether I'm travelling to or from uni (they're on opposite sides of the road :lol: )

yeah.. thats understandable... I can hear mine work a little slower when my indicator is on, as if its ticking with the indicator... strange. so when indicator on, its going slower, when indicator is off, it goes normal. It whines alot, I should check the fuel filter...

you may have a power problem , it maybe getting less volts / power when indicator is on - indicator may have earth problem
i dont know i may b talkin crap as im not a leco
my xd had a problem like that and a few poeple said ive got a earth problem thats all im going off ,
its probably one of those things that could still go good for years

i had a bugger of a prob with lux the otyher week , the battery seamed to be going flat , then one day it wouldnt start so the battery was old , so i got a new one , went great for a week or so then started dying again
you only noticed it on start up as its a die sel
ran some checks and alternater was good but wouldnt start , even when jump started , it would clutch ok though
anyway off with starter and it was fiull of crap so i cleaned it out andf it turns over like a 100kw electric motors on it , i thought the engine was tight until i pout that starter back on but now i know its not at all
