Re: reno espace 2.2 black smoke
I'm not sure that tiddling about will necessarily cause wear in a diesel engine, although it might well soot everything up. Unburnt diesel would be a better lubricant than, say, petrol.
Has it been serviced properly, including the air filter? Has it only had the one owner, so been treated like that all its life?
Trouble is, if you're thinking of buying it, you can't really give it a good run along the nearest motorway, although that's probably what it needs!
Oh and welcome to the forum
