Re: Which one? 1.5 or 1.9 ?
3 big reasons for
failure on 1.9's
the single biggest reason is the service interval is FAR too long on the 1.9 engine. this results in degraded
not cooling the
2nd reason you have already touched on. not allowing the
to cool after a high speed run.
3rd would be Garrett's fault, a design fault in the
plumbing, basically, the feed and return pipes are too small, and silt (going back to reason one) narrows them further and starves the
so my solution to this (and the reason my ex lag 1.9 is still going strong) is to change the
yearly, or at half the stated mileage, whichever comes sooner.
Currently in qwakers's garage:
Lag II sold ;-( Yamaha R6 04 black/Grey RangeRover 4.0v8 towcar and bobtailed discovery for offroading.
