    Default hello from a new SRI 150cdti owner

    hello it my first post here

    i have just purchased an SRI estate 150 cdti 2005 model which im really pleased with.

    i was hoping for some advise the car has 170k on it but it was previously my farthers car, he bought it at 10k and most of the miles are motorway miles, also he looked after it didn't drive it hard much

    my question is at this milage what is likely to go wrong or cause me problems,

    its already had the swirl flaps and inlet manifold changed

    thanks

    nick

    Hi and welcome,

    At 170K it should have had at least one timing belt change or be ready for the second now
    The clutch slave and DMF will be worth watching,
    The springs will be worth watching,
    Clean the boost sensor and throttle body
    the EGR, will be worth,,, (I think you get the point )
    the drop links ARB bushes and in general letting her have a quiet life.

    Do this and with these things and there will be another 170K in her yet
