Having a whole host of issues with my defender at the moment - electrical (fuel and temp guages not working), clutch (strange noises) and now the engine
I'm getting some loud popping coming from my exhaust when decelerating (its probably all the time but can't hear it over the loud exhaust its pretty much straight through) I understand this is down to unburnt fuel being ignited by exhaust gasses, but what could be causing it ?
duff spark plugs ? has been 15000 miles since last changed
My engine is a 3.9efi V8 runs on lpg and petrol with tublar headers and twin exhaust, burbles quite noisly at idle but dosn't pop.
Clutch/ gearbox noise/vibration
this happens occasionally when, pressing the clutch down it sounds like its not disengaging correctly with lots of vibrations in the gear lever when going to neutral, to fix it I release the clutch and press again and the noise and vibration stops.
I'm not sure if this is related to what i thought was propshaft binding with my double cardan front prop (lots of vibration and rumble when not under load) But i changed that for a wide angle prop at the weekend, which has got rid of the high speed vibrations but not the ocasional rumble when not under load - changing gear etc.
I was going to start looking at the diffs next as a possible cause of this rumbling
Any idea's on the gearbox/clutch and or propshafts..?
Electrical (devils work)
fuel guages not working properly, shows only half full when full then dips into empty on and off - sender ?
Temp guage - not working at all - sender again or bad earth ?
any help/idea's will be much appreciated
