If you will insist on driving a Ford...  ::)
Indeed. But at the time, nobody could call out a better option.
Like working AC ::)

Dropped wifey's astra at Vx and was given a stunning Vauxhall viva SE. Three pedal jobbie. It is tiny, slow, noisy, gutless and just totally unpleasant. Although the original viva wasn't anything special, they've got a cheek giving this piece of crap the same name.

You think that is bad.

Last time my car was in they gave me  2017 XF 3.0D derv. :-\
Proportionally the same thing...

As a Viva :D

Thatís going to produce a lot of heat... how do they keep it cool?
By giving it three hours recharging time for every ten seconds of abuse :D

Nor does the o/s on the 2.5/ 3.0 iirc.
I knew it was one side or tother, but never really got involved with them. IAT iirc :-\

Follow the diagnostic guide to investigate further as there's clearly more going on than a duff speaker... ;)

2.6/3.2 don't have a sensor fitted to them, so no hole for one...

Understand and thanks for concise explanation.

So the fact is leaking at union of top curved pipe and metal separator would indicate jubilee isnít holding firm
Or that the pipe isn't fitted correctly... Easily misfitted as it snags on the bottom of the intake ;)

Normal behaviour. Switching the ignition on turns it off immediately but locking will leave it on for a couple of minutes ;)

It drains down out of the breathers/plenum and through the throttle body ;)

Not sure if it is a side effect of engine wear or simply the closed breather system. Or both :-\

They all do that...

Not unusual to find an inch of oil in the bagpipes.
