Since you guys are the experts were looking for a heads up on common problems we are likely to encounter? We intend doing the following work to it

Re-New MOT
Timing Belt & Pulley (advised to do water pump also?)
Service Vehicle Inc Oils

One thing worth mentioning is the vehicle sometimes crunches into first, only when the car is moving, when stopped it goes in fine. I read on here that a gearbox oil change can help this? i find it hard to believe but i seen 2 seperate posts saying they noticed a massive difference?

Hopefuly you guys as the "Experts" can help us and look forward to hearing your opinions!

I'm no expert but 100% change oil , and i would remove and clean egr valve.
