    Default What's next to go wrong?

    Just had major 45k service done on my 07 Signum V6 CDTI Auto. Had to have new brake discs & pads all round and a few other things. Had a split intercooler pipe which was causing limp mode. Was a bit pricey so just wondering what is likely next to go wrong on this motor? What should I look out for?

    Talking

    noisey pulleys/tensioners,alternator,EGR valve,inlet manifold,boost sensor,turbo,but my cdti is on 90,000 and is spot on no problems,EGR can normally be cleaned,turbo is rare,inlet manifold is common but i think you have the later type so should be fine(not 100%) tensions are only cheap,alternator is about £200 and is not that hard of a job but most of these faults can be found on any car,my uncle ran mk3 mondeos for his taxi firm lets just say he bought the car from new and was in ford 2 weeks later with major problems worse than any cdti I have ever read about,if your worried by a warranty and not a s**t one as the paper is worth more than the warranty will pay out

    Cheers mate, yeah it's a facelift one. Doesn't sound too bad then. it's expensive things that worry me most. I've heard people talk about front sub-frames being expensive - is that a common one?

    noisey pulleys/tensioners - not sure Iwould know the noise if I heard it?

    I've never heard of a Vec needing a new sub-frame.

    But that's mostly issues with the 1.9 crappy lump, not the 3.0.

    On the most part the 3.0 doesn't really have many issues.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    LOL! Just popped out to the shop and got "Check left lower light" on the dash. Sure enough the left headlight has blown... I guess *that* was the next thing to go wrong!

    Thanks for all your advice fellas - much appreciated.
