How do.....

Post by soops » 04 Apr 2015, 19:59

Thanks for the add.

In the past 15+ years I have had several Pug 405 diesels and for the last 11 I had a Y reg 2.0 hdi C5 that has now gone to the big scrapyard in the sky. Although the engine pulled like a train everything else was going wrong and so I took her around the back of the barn and put her down.

Now I have a 54 1.6 HDI C5 that came with full stamps and although I like her, she does have some niggles.

I will be posting shortly to ask about the biggest one.

Hello, and welcome to the FCF madhouse.

Is the niggle turbo related?

That's my specialist subject. My garage man devolved my mk 1 2.2 hdi by blowing it out with an air hose. 100000 miles worth of devolution in one go hee hee
