Is this to be expected?

Ok, Ive had the car 2 weeks and already:

1. One small fuel line burst near the pump. Easy fix.

2. The plug fouled 3 times, hopefully fixed

3. A nut has just fallen of the turbo to manifold connection. And anothers come loose. Now blowing, gonna fix it in the mornin.

I hope this isnt a start of things too come.

Still love the beast though + ive had a lot worse happen (a lot worse)

Welcome my dear boy......

To 21Turbo Ownership.........things will persistently crop up, just to piss you off and test your enthusiasm. 6 months mine sat outside for, I got her to the French day and guess what........? She sat in my garage off the road again.....but we love it dont we?

could this be somebody taking the "unluckiest" title away from me...........probably not lol :lol: :lol:
 
You got a 15 year old car mate so it's unrealistic to not expect things to break, then when you also have the fact that it's a 21 Turbo you should expect many and numerous problems, most minor but annoying.
 
LOL

Yep, ive driven round with 2 nuts holding the turbo on, havent we all? LOL

If those are your biggest woes, damn you are lucky!!!!
 
Larsson> Yeah that so true.

Dave> I know its not much, but in 2 weeks? :lol: maybe in 6 months i would have had 2 liners go, blown head gasket, melted piston :lol: :lol:

Never mind its all good fun.
 
LOL

And what did i find last night? You got it. One loose nut and one dropped off the turbo-manifold join.
Only been on there 1000 miles LMFAO!
Run out of bloody crinkle washers.....
