      Diesel power never came to the US.
      But engines all need the same thing
      So if it idles and revs up a bit over idle, but then falls apart, I'd say fuel delivery issue. But again, diesel is not...

      These engines suffer very bad damage from over heating. So unless you can get proof that it's a simple fix, and I'd bet it's not, I'd avoid. Unless you want a project

      Wheel size will be important. No matter whatever brakes you go with. Since you don't elaborate on what trim level your car is, we are all guessing. I agree that if you don't already have the 320 mm...

      Your clunk seems to be very similar to my clunk. Mine is way more obvious in the 1st couple gear shifts. As far as I know, I've never noticed them in the highest gears.

      I've also started out with my s40 in the wrong gear. Once I realize it, I just switch gears to 1st or 2nd. It's amazing how close the m66 gear ratios are, so even in 3rd or 4th, the car will start to...

      If you have a lot of misfires, I assume this is being diagnosed by codes? I'd think bad coils.
