The ECU is responsible for controlling the "coolant temperature warning" LED when the temperature reaches a critical level (risk of damaging the engine). To perform this function, a coolant temperature thermocontact switch is used. This is mounted directly into the engine block as it can be more reactive in the event of loss of coolant. The...

When lowering the front suspension of a Mk2 Saxo, one of the power steering fluid pipes sits closer to the driver's side steering rod, which can over time, rub through the power steering pipe. If/when the pipe splits / ruptures, the power steering pump empties all of the power steering fluid through the hole in the pipe. This leads to a total...
