Hi All :) 

 

I am about to put my VX off the road for the winter. She needs a few jobs done before she goes back on the road Feb/ March time (O2 sensor away which has brought the EML light on, black smoke occasionally on acceleration (related to o2 sensor i believe) and a problem with the brake servo, Vacuum leak where it meets the servo) can hear the air hissing out when i move the pipe from the servo.

 

I was going to take it upto either Dreadnaught in Callandar or Falkland Performance in Glenrothes as I am Stirling based. Has anyone had any kind of experience with either or? I had a search about the forum but there isn't that much to go by?  

 

Thanks again,

Matt

could just be the one-way valve for the brake servo , if its still the original

vacuum leaks can cause long term overfueling

The "usual" choice for most for Lotus and VX is Craig Moncreiff at the Gyle in Edinburgh.  He's probably looked after more 2nd hand Loti/VX than anyone else in Scotland.

Dreadnaught are fine as used them a few times on the VX, check out the reviews on SE as someone in Glasgow has a good reputation now.
