Hola, from Malaga

Post by MarcusMcGuinness »

Hi there,
I live in a small village 40 minutes away from Málaga city, and own a 1994 Citroen ZX 1.9TD Volcane and a 1999 Peugeot Partner 1.9D. Both cars are pretty knackered (although the zx is still a beauty) and can't be worth much more than 500 euros between them, so I've started doing any maintainance and repair work myself. I have already read a load of stuff here which has helped me to do bits and pieces, but my latest challenge is with the Partner. This had accumulated a long to-do list for an imminent MOT, none of which has yet been done, but added to that the engine has suddenly started making an alarming noise from the cam. I'll start a new thread to ask advice on that. Meantime, does the forum allow us to upload mp3 recordings of engine noise or do I have to make it into a YouTube video, or such like?
Thanks,
Mac

Welcome to the Forum Mac.

You can upload images and YouTube videos - but not audio clips. You'll need to use the full editor and put any YouTube URL into the YouTube tags, then delete everything in the URL to the left of and including the '=' sign.

Hi, Mac, and a welcome from another near-Málaga resident.
I ran a ZX myself (but definitely not a Volcane), clocking up 90k+ of company mileage.
See a fair few out our way - it's Xantias (and certainly BX) that are really thin on the ground.

Thanks, Chris.
I know where you are. We're west of Málaga in Alhaurin El Grande. Not as unspoilt as your neck of the woods but still great to live here!
