Re: Quick release oil sump plug

Quick release plugs are ok, just watch the ground clearance Pela pumps might be handy for ATF if no plug but I dont rate them for engine oil change, it takes seconds to remove the SP.

Re: Avoid or not?

Your best bet it to get the vehicle inspected, the MOT is only a rough guide there are many vehicles that have had a MOT and a couple of weeks later they proved to be Dangerous and should never been on the road .

Re: 2.5td engine out

Personally I would drop the engine to the floor first then raise the vehicle. If you are on your drive way put a skid board down first .

And it will be a lot lighter to lift the body without the engine and gear box.

Re: Lamda sensor/door seal for 2005 Bongo 2.0 petrol

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm Jan the other half driven mad by the whistling kettle noise that kicks in at about 40 mph:D We've had it checked and the passenger door seal is the most likely culprit.
