Following on from my last thread, ive bought the car i went to see.
Its a 2006 Sri 150 with an intergalactic 157,000 miles on the clock but the price was too good to say no.
Issues i spotted which im not sure about how to repair / the cost.
1) I checked the actuator bar for the swirl valves like you good folks said and its disconnected from all the valves. I know this means a new inlet is needed which i should be able to fit myself, hopefully! Does it HAVE to be replaced or does it affect the engine not having them working? Wheres the cheapest place to get a new inlet? Trade club?
2) The gear lever is very stiff side to side and in general. Is this just a case of pop the gaitor off and spray white grease into all the joints or is it a worn out gear linkage?
3) The temperature knob on the heater panel has a piece out of it, is the knob easilly removed?
4) It comes with no service history. The dealer says it had it upto 140k but is lost. Seems well taken care off though. Im going to put a new timing belt kit and water pump on as i dont know when it was last changed. Also a fuel oil and filter service. I have 10w/40 GM oil from vaux which i use in my x20xev. Is this oil ok for a 1.9 diesel or do i need a different type?
Cheers for any help folks! I'll get some more pics up when i get it cleaned!
