Re: Sluggish Auto Gearbox

No more hiding of issues from top level ! Often as not the top level is deliberately deaf. The person at the helm sets the whole culture, especially regarding honesty and integrity. If everybody below is only allowed to see a little patch of sky above their own silo there's little wonder that they ...

Re: DPF Fault !!!!!

More from Daimler on the OM654q diesel. I was looking to see whether it had a dedicated fuel injector which would avoid having to use post injection but it appears that this advanced design won't need much by way of active regeneration.
