I have spent time looking around all sorts of sites about
problems with diesels and have reached a simple conclusion.
They are all likely to break, turbos are ultimately fragile devices spinning at around 200,000 rmp and all you can do is maintain decent service intervals and use a good
is likely to fail if certain circumstances exist. You can mitigate against these to a certain extent but I guess there are no garuntees.
It took the
108000 to go on my lag, caused by a blocked
pipe aparently, just goes to show.
I just have to go for the car that suits me best and hope for the best.
Why can't things be simple anymore like back in the days when I had an old Fiesta or Escort, all I needed was some common sense, 2 spanners and some string!
