Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Thanks for your thoughts but why replace 0W-30 Professional Castrol Edge with a thicker one? It's a good question. Basically it boils down to this. Oil analysis of wear metals shows that the standard oil becomes too thin when exposed to the effects of I) prolonged and intense periods of post inject...

Re: Restricted performance

Hmm, they looked it all over and couldn’t find any leaks/splits in the hoses. Do you think it’s likely theyve done something whilst servicing it as it’s oddly convienent Not necessarily. But I do know that longitudinal splits in re-enforced air hoses which are not under pressure are notoriously dif...

Re: New DS? Dilemma re oil dilution etc

Ian, I've looked at my original post and believe I should have put it like this: 3. The problem becomes super-critical when journeys are exclusively sub-30 minutes . Now the owner will be lucky to make 4,000-5,000 miles between oil changes. But that's not the worst problem - because now the DPF will...

At least two owners of the 2.2 Ford have found that this was caused by a split hose:

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

All done! Humming nice and quietly under the bonnet. Took it in Tuesday at 9; they started on it by 10 and it was road testing at 1:30 Wednesday. I asked to look at the old shafts when I collected the car and there was some marking of the needles but not drastic (IMHO) but enough to make the distre...

Re: New DS? Dilemma re oil dilution etc

Can't agree with some of the above. You do not need to have a journey time of at least 45 mins to get better than 6,000 to 8,000 miles between oil changes. My journey's are mostly 30 mins in duration and I managed to get around 13,500 miles before hitting 6%. Driving hard doesn't mean a lack of res...

I'll bet this adverse-PR video gets deleted very soon at JLR's request so, for the record....
Too late - it's already escaped into the wild.
