    Default My Car Probs

    Hi Folks
    At the weekend, a couple of friends of mine did some work kindly on my car, They changed the Oil Filter, Air Filter, Fuel Filter and drained the oil and added new oil into my car, a service if you will.
    However, my car is really rattly / sluggish still, but certainly has a lot more boost than it did have previously, as it was FLAT as a F**T.
    I am told that maybe my clutch and flywheel are in need of replacing, its done 101,000 miles now.
    What else can I do to the car to make it run better and have more boost back again?
    Another thing, My windscreen wipers have stopped working, well they work just no water comes out ... It sounds like the motor has gone but I cant find the fuse to replace it. Do you have any suggestions on any of the above.
    Thanks
    Adam

    Is it a petrol or a diesel? Got to give more details about the car.

    If it is a petrol, you havent changed the spark plugs, if it is a diesel you will have to clean out the EGR valve and other bits that get crudded up, the swirl bar may have fallen off. It is also possible you have leaking or perished boost pipes.

    Check under the scuttle to see if the wiper linkage has dropped off, you can cure it with some zip ties.

    Check to see if the pump is running when the wiper lever is pulled forward, if it is not running, check fuses. If it is running, it is possible the filter is blocked.

    There is a How 2 on cleaning the filter. As the ear washer uses the same pump, if the pump is pumping to the rear screen, then I would suggest it is a blocked filter.
