Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

I was surprised that the Ford dealerships (one being the main dealer) didn't try to persuade me to go for finance. They did try on the uninsured loss insurance, the Diamond Brite and something else....

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

H'mm. I considered buying a 5 yr old C-Max with the 1.6 version of that engine. It had the guts of an arthritic snail, and I went for petrol instead. I understand that the 1.6 diesel has some...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Many moons ago I had a Triumph Dolomite 1850. Nice car, except you couldn't keep paint on it. I needed a part, and went to our local main dealer. I had to order it. When it came, I had a problem...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Don't forget that we don't know the year of Harold's car. I, though, am more familiar with heavy diesels in recent times. Having checked, the current oil for diesels is a 5W/30 C3 spec, a...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

I think it's only against new cars, Derek. But I concur about the mileage being too low. That's why I asked how old the car is earlier. Depending on the age, it may have monograde oil,...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

That raises a whole new Pandora's box of potential issues! I wonder what the engine oil is. How old is this car? (Years, not miles) Sounds to me as if it has accumulated sludge in the oil ways to...

Re: The Peugeot Diesel Pollutant Saga

OMG, this is a long and convoluted thread!
As someone who was an electronics engineer in the Automotive industry for 37 years, I feel that I have to comment. Cost is a major point for vehicle...
