Re: Coolant leak 1996 2.5TD

The thin hose going from right to left with the silver heat shield on it is a turbo coolant hose, check the pipe and clips carefully.

Re: Stalling Bongo- "fly-by-wire" pump needs reconditioning?

Is it the pump, or something else, sounds like fuel tank vac, or the pick up pipe filter in the tank blocking, or the tank breather on the chassis blocked, the pipe goes from the top of the tank at the sender unit to the inside chassis leg just behind where the fuel tank ends at the rear, it's a bla...

Re: gearbox sensor overheat?

Without any fault codes and the description you give I would be looking at the turbo or pipework to it, you state it happens around where the turbo starts to spool up and add boost. Could be fuel filter (both). Or small dia pipe on inlet manifold elbow to pump top advance diaphragm blocked with oil ...

Re: Summer camping

Yeh I agree Bob but what's more entertaining than watching a couple put up a new tent when he won't just read the instructions and she is just waiting for him to mess up and ask for help. Best laughs you can have for free.😁

Re: Changing odometer reading

But you can still have a twiddle, well, on the 95 plate one that I had you could, didn't say it was cable driven, it's a case of opening the gears apart and rotating to where you want but it's not easy.

Re: Changing odometer reading

Re: Where has it gone ?

Too late bud, lock down in our house means something different to the government's intended meaning, I'm seaking legal advice if I can get this padlock undone that's fastening me to the cooker. She's pulling rank as her employer says she's a very special worker, I think that means she puts her life ...

Re: Exhaust manifold is off! YAY!

I just get a large piece from a scrap yard but never tried to buy new, I would imagine it will be available from the car build/ tuning web sites, search heat shield or similar.
