Re: Gearbox going?

Maybe the battery got charged and that made Stop Start work. I've had 3-6 minutes before my 2 cars have restarted. Depends on how it's used.

The clutch and flywheel would be minimum of 360. Then good few hours to do so I'd call that decent price, considering I spent 1k once just on a flywheel fitted on a Vauxhall.

Very reasonable price.
The Rover 75 DMF, clutch and slave would be around 800 all in, their DMF though is a good un.

Re: Gearbox going (Updated DMF Seized)

If you want to bellyache try a clutch repacement on a Subaru Legacy at a dealer, that price is music to these ears... ( Wifey is a tad hard on clutches ! )

Re: Gearbox going?

For info: the stop/start restarting after 25 seconds is because the battery voltage sensors detects the voltage is dropping too far, so it restarts to get the alternator charging it again. That might suggest either the battery is old, or you have something turned on (headlights for example) that is draining the battery. It will also restart if you have climate control and it senses that the temperature inside the car is changing (getting too hot or cooling below the temperature you've selected)

Re: Gearbox going (Updated DMF Seized)

I've never had to replace a clutch in nearly 40 years of car ownership, despite running some cars for well over 100k miles, so my idea of how much it costs to replace one is hazy at best. I stand corrected. I was shocked recently to find that a simple alternator replacement on the wife's horrible Volvo was north of 350 at an independent, and that for a reconditioned alternator. But then, if Fiat can charge over 100 for an inspection service that involves little more than kicking the tyres, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the prices shoot up if they actually have to get the spanners out.

Re: Gearbox going?

Fiat's stop/start is a rough piece of work at best and doesn't seem to work well for long.

It just uses a slightly uprated battery and starter motor with a voltage sensor and switch on the clutch, it's debatable if it actually saves anything as the engine gets loaded to recharge the battery back to the correct level after restarting.

Most manufacturers have ditched this for more reliable and cleaner systems.
Mazda's Skyactiv stops the engine with a cylinder on a compression stroke, then when it's time to restart, it fires that cylinder to restart the engine and off you go.

My Berlingo E-HDi uses a hybrid alternator and a capacitor.
Excess charge generated on the over run and/or braking is stored in the capacitor, then it spins up the alternator with this charge to fire up the engine.
It work too perfect, it actually knocks the engine off a second or so before you actually stop!
