Laguna 2004 blue 1.9 DCI 6 speed
168,800 miles on the clock
no service history
mot till august next year and tax till end of feb
broken passenger window mech and passenger wishbone bushes.
So obv with the car having no history and the
being blacker then tar i ran a can on engine flush through it bit longer than was directed as i was unable to remove the sump plug and so had kwik git do it the next day so new
+ filter plus wynns
treatment to help the engine after years of what i suspect neglect engine is now running alot quieter replaced all other service components air filter, fuel filter and pollen filter (alot of leafs came out lol) i am very keen to get the cambelt changed this is happening on Friday this week along with the aux belt water pump and tensioners have also ordered a new window mech from
and will be replacing the wish bone next week.
im very new to working on cars my self other than doing a few bits and bobs on an old pug 205 im planning on using this car to do a road trip around Germany in January which of course i will post pics of for you guys other than doing brake pads and disc's is there anything else you guys would do to this car to ensure it lasts i am still debating the fact that after the trip to either rebuild or buy a new/rebuilt engine and have it fitted and rebuild the old one my self learn more about the engine etc ino it sounds alot to do over a cheap car buy i really like driving it.
thanks for reading my rambles and apologies for any grammar issues
