Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What could be the causes of this minor errr ............ problem :?
  2. Ensure your afterburners are switched off.
  3. Lancashire Fire and rescue list the following as being the main causes of fire:




    Heat - radiated/convected/conducted

    Careless disposal of smoking materials


    Hope this helps.
  4. You have unburnt fuel in your exhaust which ignites when it reaches fresh air behind the car:

    Either your timing is out and the exhaust valve opens before the fuel has burnt,
    Your valve seats are corroded and not holdingthe fuel in the chamber long enough to burn off.
    Your fuel injection or carburretor is running rich and putting too much fuel in for the amount of air in the chamber

    if its a turbo your ECU is not matching your airflow to your fuel mixture.

    Im not a mechanic so possibly ask Reme or a proper mechanic.
  5. l'd say she was running a tad erm... rich!!

    or someones put fireworks up it!!

    Id get it looked at asap though, some bystander gets fried pins in a town for example and you will be well in the sh**
  6. what car is it?? perfectly acceptable on anything highly tuned and in particular turbocharged!
  7. Cheers guys. Its not a highly tuned car so it isn't supposed to do that.

    :oops: cheers threaders i'll stop using my fighter jet in town.
  8. You're driving a Stolly and don't know it......LMAO
  9. :D Keep off the curry. :D
  10. pillager - ask REME or a proper mechanic, hahaha (i dont know how to do the flash quote things)
  11. You mean "these"?

    They're above the number "2" on your keyboard ;)
  12. Unburnt fuel or excess CO burning off. If your car has a catalytic converter sadly you may be in for an expensive surprise.

    Get it sorted ASAP
