OK, thanks Mike. I'll keep an eye on it. Not making any smoke at all, and running very sweetly. I'm at 68,000 on an unrebuilt engine.

Or you could pour in some K-Seal. I did this on a B4 six years ago and it's worked exactly as advertised. It's a lot easier!

I've only ever seen seen one of those once, a client had bought it stupidly cheap from the main dealer in (I think) Weston super Mare. Nogaro blue, black leather, and a very nice car.

I agree completely. If 'our' car's value were based on their quality I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have an MB in the shed.

On the other hand those of us who know what it is would quite happily pay that price (OK maybe not quite that price) for a 90 quattro 20valve, whereas I wouldn't even pay 900 for a Cortina, in any...

Thanks for your help guys. Wierd how I automatically assume everything on a Quattro is a bit 'special'. It's just a locking wheel bolt, can be got all over the place. However, am I correct in...

IMO the basic test for a pump which is otherwise working OK, would now be to measure the current draw. I wish I'd done this on my 30-year old MB, it would have saved me from being stranded side of...

MB hesitation when warm

After about eight years of progressive work (over when I got the car) my MB is now running - in general - very sweetly. There's just one last nagging glitch. When the engine is cold throttle response...
