    Starter motor ?

    I really don’t want to risk it not starting again, it was a massive pain last time. I think I’m just going to pull it and fork out for a freshy. I’ll of course clean up connections also.

    Fuel consumption....

    Yep as soon as I get it going again I’ll be sure to calculate fuel consumption for sure.

    Starter motor ?

    Am I correct in thinking there are only 2 bolts? So apart from a bit hard to reach it’s a pretty straight forward job? Remove battery connection than 2 bolts and swap it out?

    Starter motor ?

    Is that right? Does that mean because it’s a 93 the first of the XG’s they brought a few out with the previous motor? Or has it simply had a conversion?

    Fuel consumption....

    I ended up running a “dayco” thermostat and a new housing from ebay.

    Just thought I’d close this post out, changed out thermostat and thermostat housing. Still uses same amount of fuel and stats really cool on temp gauge. So I’m guessing these are just pigs on fuel and she stays cool . Anyway cheers guys

    Starter motor ?

    It’s actually just turned over and ran... I tried it a few times and no problems. So I’m guessing the starter motor is on its way out? I think iv also located it. Is it under the exhaust manifold on passenger side close to the fire wall? If it is it looks like a nightmare to replace

    Starter motor ?

    Gday crew, I know this is rookie but hey that’s how it is... just trying to start my XG and it clicks but nothing else so I think my starter motor is gone. Just wondering the location of the starter motor on XG falcon utes? I have had a car years ago did the same and tapped it and she ran. I just want to make sure it’s the starter motor and see how accessible it is. Also pretty sure I’ll be able to do it myself but just need to have a look. Cheers in advance guys

    No worries Rocker cover gasket needs replacing anyway so when I do that I’ll do thermostat, oil and filter too. Cheers bud

    Fuel consumption....

    Yeah solid I’ll get into this now and also check the thermostat after iv got another ready to replace it with. Iv been researching all day and the only information I can find on damage from stuck open or missing thermostat is fuel consumption. I think maybe the previous owner had it stuck shut and car was overheating so they just removed it? I’ll only know when I pull it I suppose

    Fuel consumption....

    Either that or the previous owner has had it stuck shut and just removed it? As the gasket glue looks pretty crappy and home job done. I think I’m just going to replace it...
