Things just wouldnt be "right" if there wasnt something a little bit wrong with my 16v! Im up in Edinburgh at the moment - doing about 30 miles a week in my car (if that) as
a) Im cycling into work
b) my motor needs some love
1. My car rumbles like hell. The front rumble is at what sounds like the manifold-to-downpipe joint (is this a gasket maybe?). At the back it squeakes like mad at the "bend" (where it goes to the nearside) at the rear of the exhaust (an exhaust hanger?). Is this lot going to be expensive/out of the capabilities of non-specialists? (P.S. its a Mongoose cat-back). Has anybody had this happen to them?
2. Ive got coolant leaking from the bleed screw of the radiator. Not the whole lot, but enough to go from "Max" to "Min" in an 8 hour drive I did to get to bonnie Scotland. Why could this be??
3. Can Dentmaster/whoever get rid of the many tiny door-opening dents Ive picked up in car parks - or is it going to be too expensive to consider??
4. GR has already pointed out some garages for me in Edinburgh - does anybody else know of good tyre/exhaust/MOT places here??
Cheers very much for the help!
GR - am going to investigate the garage contacts you gave me the other day - thanks very much!!
