Re: Buying Second-Hand Diesel Car

It is a good engine. If you ever see oil leaking, maybe at first some drops on the ground around where you park it or something smelling after a long drive, or later when you open up the bonnet... it could be the swirl flaps which can be a problem on these models and need replacing / modifying as if one gets sucked into the engine it's kaputt. Hard to spot when you buy as they're likely to steam clean it etc but if you do see traces of oil high up around the motor, well look out.
