Re: help me plz PCV?

What normally happens is, If you have a boost leak of any description you have a loss of pressure on the turbo oil seals allowing oil to seep past This is then blown though the inlet side of the engine. Don't worry to much as a little will do no harm, just makes a mess as the years & miles roll by :...

Re: How many forum users still actually drive a 406

Good stuff Ben :D Are you still happy with your reconditioned injectors :?: Mines on 128k now & going grand but the injectors are still not right, I've done everything else so might as well sort these out too. Just can't decide whether to get my original ones refurbed or get some newer 307 ones as ...

Re: going to have a go at welding the sills !

Gas mig. Gasless is a pain in the arse as it starts much worse than gasless and you'll have to do more cleanup, TIG is a waste of time unless you cut it back to completely perfectly clean metal and get your repair seamless - and you have it indoors otherwise the wind is a nightmare. Stick welder? F...

Re: Help, trying to remove head 2.0 hdi

You don't see a lot of it these days, sadly gone are the days of buying a complete gasket set from a factors for little money, I think these days it would be cheaper to buy a com...
