    Default 1.9 Diesel, what to look for?

    i'm going to look at 2 1.9 SRIs tomorrow on 56 plates.

    what should i be looking for specifically.
    any regular faults or hidden minefields?

    thanks.

    I have a very good contact at VX derby road if you want something specific sourcing.

    there's 2 parked up at the local dealer.
    they're identical spec and the regs are only a few letters out.
    i'll get a good deal as i know a few people.

    thanks anyhow



    my vec b has had it's day as it's got loads of engine work needed.
    so i've near enough decided that a new car is the way to go rather than spend stupid money on a worn down motor.

    Definatly check :

    the springs and shocks
    the banana links at the back
    front and rear bumpers for bangs
    oil leaks around the rocker seal and on the rubber pipes in that area
    oil leaks at the back of the engine
    security of the air hose onto the inlet manifold
    aircon heat exchanger for heavy stone damage and check it works
    exhaust security
    turn it on and listen from the outside as it is well sound proofed
    Don't except it with NCT5 tyres!!!!
    check the space saver tyre and the tools
    operate everything!!!

    then tell them you don't think it's in as gooda nick as the other one you've seen and see what they will offer you.
