    Default Swapping petrol for diesel. Advice needed.

    I am toying with the idea of getting rid of my 1.8 vectra for a 150 diesel only problem is the diesel I'm looking at has 146.000 miles on the clock. It does have a full service history and has just had a new clutch. Do you guys think it is too high mileage and could cause me problems??
    any advice appreciated.

    As long as you are doing high mileages you should be ok. Mine is on 170K and the wifes is 160K and we seem to be ok. Get the usual suspects checked, inlet manifold ect

    The swirl bar should be securely fixed and not come off in your hand
