    Battery vent pipe routing

    I so pose most car batteries are in the engine compartment, which is open at the bottom. In the Maserati, well my 4200, it is effectively sealed in the boot, unless there is a vent pipe. I must check if i have 1. Rob

    Scam I reckon

    If its a scam they will have taken over someone's ebay account, they are probably after a deposit for a deal that seems very good, then you will never hear from them again

    4200 manual gear lever not centring

    I removed the rocker arm for the side ways motion cable and cleaned it and greased it up, all seems to work now, with the gear leave cetering itself as it should. I'll take it for a test drive tomorrow. Thanks for your help and advise Terry

    4200 manual gear lever not centring

    Terry I'll give that a go next, handy tip that is not in any service schedule. I was thinking it looked a bit exposed down there, and it seems to have the movement, but i have nothing to compare it against. So ill dis-assemble and lubricate it. That do you use to lubricate the bushes with? Rob

    4200 manual gear lever not centring

    It was looking at the eurospares diagram that made me think I could get to it from the top, having taken the centre console off it does not look like you can. The diagram does not show any parts within the shifter housing.

    4200 manual gear lever not centring

    4200 manual gear lever not centring Discovered an unusual problem with the gear change on my manual. The lever is not centring when it is in the neutral position. You have to move the lever to the centre position when not in gear, instead of it moving there itself. No other issues changing gear...

    Secondary air pump problems, possibly?

    OK, so its all back together again, sanded down corroded cable connectors, small hole in the smaller air delivery tube, I super glued on a piece of silicon hose, cut length ways and wrapped around it, also secured with 2 cable ties. If I get the errors again, I will just bypass the tube...

    Secondary air pump problems, possibly?

    I was just looking at it and thinking, hum maybe replace that with some hose. Since its been done before and works I'll probably just do that.

    Secondary air pump problems, possibly?

    I managed to take the air delivery tube off the car, Maserati are really keen that you don't remove it without taking the whole engine out. The top looks lovely, but underneath the smaller tube, 1 have found 2 tiny rust holes, one for each bank, Looks far to delicate to be welded. I'll clean off...

    Doug Demouro does 4200 Manual

    Its OK to watch, I don't think most American cars have skyhook, so pressing the sport button you will not notice anything. I don't think he likes many cars that he reviews, so this is praise. Maybe he needs a few comments adding telling him about all the stuff he is clueless about.

    Secondary air pump problems, possibly?

    Anyone got any experience of Secondary air pump problems? From time to time I will get 2 error messages at the same time, P0491 and P0492 “Secondary Air Injection System Insufficient Flow” both banks, suggesting its the Secondary air pump, or pipe leading to it. The pipes look ok. I have...
