A trustworth used car dealer?

Yes they do exist, my Disco 300TDi with it's knackered engine is going back
to the guy that sold me it and he has agreed to a full refund and is even
paying to transport it from Bradford to Surrey - result!!!

At least I haven't lost the 3k that I paid for it, or that was until I
thought sod these old cars and put the money down as deposit for a Disco3
TDV6 :-)

Lifes too short to worry about these things.

Hope it all goes through as suggested and better luck with the next one.

tut tut, you'll regret it matey!!

old cars have soul, btw i really didn't like the d3 at all, too much techno
bollocks & not enough 'soul'

But once bitten twice shy etc i suppose!!

Been driving the Subaru this week due to a dodgy damper that I'm gonna do
over the weekend & i'm missing the Rangie! like mad!

My m8 at the dealer told me they replace engines for fun in those,
coz people think u dont need to check the oil between services.

I worked for a guy once in the 1960s who had actually wrecked 3 engines
before someone explained to him about oil and its purpose in the
internal combustion engine.

H'mmm, I note you say "in" the engine, do you mean I'm not supposed to just
pour it over the engine? I thought to get the driveway like all of my
friends with landrovers that was the standard procedure and it stops the
seals leaking.

;-)

Though to be fair this engine has outlasted it's chassis and it's not even
running yet.

My landrover chassis is on atleast its 3rd engine!. I scrapped the one
it came with and that was definately not happy. I stripped off the
head and there were actually cobwebs in one of the cylinders!
