That's very useful Husky, thanks for posting :D Yes, I should say the sensor in 5 is the level sensor given its position relative to the sump.

Maybe worth saying this is the DV6 1.6 diesel...

:lol: :lol: :lol: That's a very modern and contemporary view of it Colin, no doubt how 99% of Gen Z see it! Now there's sod-all the average person can do on a modern car, save topping-up the screen-wash, that's the level of understanding of what goes on under the bonnet...

Happy Christmas!

Hi Jim,
Great to see you here enjoying yourself.
I see you have moved with the times and are using the upgraded Penny Farthing :)
Sorry for the late reply had to use my phone as whilst i have a clear screen on my laptop it seems water may have caused an issue with the chippy things that make it run. #-o
Screen washed where do i go to make a claim :rofl2:

And great to see you here Colin :D Yes, gone all modern and been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century... I'm loving learning all about these modern cars and how they work and I'm absolutely loving my little Picasso - it's been a very steep learning curve but I'm getting there ;)

I've still got my proper Citroen though ;)

I love it reading about an engine over 10 yrs old classed as modern makes me feel young :)

Good engines can have a very long life Husky... Several PSA engines have. Off the top of my head: the little TU, the XU/D - of which the HDi is just a development - and the ES9 V6... There may be more.

All the above are modern classics that enjoyed a very long life in production... The DV6 is not so bad but other more recent PSA engines have not perhaps inherited the genes of the earlier ones for general bomb-proofness...
