My dark grey C5 :)

Post by b12cky »

This is my limo...:)
It's '02 2.0 16v with AG LPG conversion that has been done when the car had only 25km on odometer (29.05.2002.)
This C5 was imported from Holland back in 2009. It was a friends car and I bought it from him 3 months ago.
I have every service record and every invoice. :)
I'm a freak about cars, so every plastic has to be right and everything has to work on the car.
Tomorrow I'm going to see my local mechanic to change temperature sensor and EVAP valve (purge solenoid) and to do MAF sensor cleaning.
About a month ago it was fitted with new EGR valve and a new lambda sensor. Also, 1500km ago it had a full clutch replaced.
Like every Citroen, it has it's own Gremlins, but, I like it. :)

Hi.

Nice condition your C5

Just a note, never (if yours is damaged) use one of the cheep China MAF sensors, they do not work well or last long.

Thanx.
I really try to buy OEM parts or, a very good replacement.
MAF sensor is going to be cleaned just for prevention. I have a small RPM variation on idle.
It could be an air leak (that will also be checked) and, just to be sure, I'll have MAF sensor cleaned.
Also, spark plugs will be checked and replaced if needed. (they have been replaced some 7000 mls ago)

Nice C5. If it does not have cruise control it is easy to add it, but you will need to check whether the brake pedal has the right switch on it, to allow for the CC to disconnect when you touch the brakes.

Same colour as mine. I have found that the colour does not show up the dirt so much. IE. it gets dirty, but does not seem to get any worse. I have not washed my car in 18 months. It really does not look that bad either. Maintained to high standard though. I just wont wash a car unless the body work is perfect. I feel I am only polishing a turd, so to speak.
