That would be a fine thing Blue but sadly, as far as I know  there are no plans to produce such a tome.

For info regarding the spark plugs:

You will need a decent, strong (read: not too cheapo) socket set to get the spark plugs out, as they are in pretty tight. If you're planning on doing a few housekeeping things to the car, you'll find a standard socket set invaluable :)


Best advice I've heard for a while.

Don't get any adjustable spanners either, they're cr@p no matter how much they cost.

Engines are really fairly simple.  They've got a lot more complicated "looking" over the past few years, but essentially everything is the same princple as it was 50 years ago.

I'll see if I can find a link to download my screensaver, used it to explain to the missus how an engine works.........I'm a Mechanical Engineer, so a bit of an engine sado  :wink:
Advice worth what you just paid for it.

Found it.  There's a link to it at the top of this thread.  The file is HUGE and takes a while to download, but it's worth it.

Best screensaver ever (although the musics quite annoying)
