Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

I've been wondering about that, the bottom of the dipstick tube is S-shaped - I watched the mechanic here extricating a broken dipstick from one, it was a long while back mind. I seem to remember the tube was quite narrow too. I thought maybe if you were using a sucker on one it would actually use t...

Re: Non-406 1.6 TU series engine problem

Get an endoscope/boreascope? Dropped valve, bent valve, valve seat fallen out.... I don't suppose it's going to be good, whatever it is, so you're best bet is to do the bare minimum to diagnose it to make sure you called it and then bin it.

Re: hdi bottom radiator hose seal
