Great engine - just have some issues like oil leaks - 3 common places -

Worth Check on radiator condition
Alternators may need keeping eye on charge
Air mass meters worth checking check for split boots

As long as has good oil and not overheat then seen many over 200k miles and going well

Some rare issues like cat on manifold cracking and oil pump can have issue with very high miles or been abused

Hope you are well and that helps - call me if helps further cheers Neil

Hi all

Wow - not a very well used section is this. The last X series post was last year.

Rather than talk to myself, I'll go elsewhere then for help and advise.

BTW I bought a 3.0i sport with LPG.
