The water i reckon will be a case of going over everythin again in terms of hoses, i reckon you have just missed a hose and its tucked out of sight somewhere (i did that)

and when i got mine started back up my idling was all over the place, biggest cause is usually a vacuum leak, ie filter not on properly, IM not bolted down tight etc

Ben, what ezza said above, sounds right, as the water is leaking from around the IM gasket aswell, i reckon whip it off slap some gasket sealant on it refit it and find the correct torque settings on it, and see what happens then, two birds one stone n shit

nothing much been done cus, just chnaged the gearbox oil and filled the engine up with coolant now as there isnt any leaks. only one problem that i noticed though! now that ive lowered the car theres loads of negative camber on the passanger front wheel and none at all on the drivers side??? its pissing me off, ive looked and looked and looked! my tracking is out a fair bit as i hit a curb in the ice when it was on the road but thats only toe in and toe out aint it. ive changed the track rod ends both sides and checked for damage and cant see any at all. the only thing that im thinking now but it would be rare to make the wheel sit this way is the wheel bearing. got a quote from my insurance company which was all good so gonna pay the deposit the begining of the month then go take it to be MOT'd so il need to know that place you take yours cus.....
also gonna order 2 new tyres and my wheel boss and might go get that battery cable this saturday if your free? thats if my cheque clears in time anyway.
other than that it just needs the glovebox put back in and a good clean inside and out.

If you look at the pics you will see what i mean with the camber being different on both sides! i know the tyres flat on the drivers side but ive tried pumping it up and its still the same. making me angry! i hit the curb back in the ice just hoping i dont need a new lower wish bone or anything, but inspected everything and all seems ok so i aint got a clue Sad




let me know if you have any ideas what could be wrong

well worst case scenario......Subframe.....
when i had an mx5 i hit the curb and it bent the wishbone, changed it and it was still out. diagnosed as the subframe .
on the other hand, that was opposite camber to yours, it was tucked under as opposed to yours, so i dont get it

i hope its not the subframe or big mission to get everything back out again!
it was the drivers side i hit the curb so i dont get it either. i looked at my brothers car and his camber seems to be the same as mine on the passenger side so its got to be something to do with hitting the curb aint it.

think im just gonna get my tracking done and go from there.
