Default Hi I'm New

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry if I've posted this in the wrong place, I just wanted to say hello.

I recently bought my first MG-ZT, it has sadly come with a few problems, but I am loving the car!
Its a 2.0 cdti
It's also my first ever diesel car. Everything else I've ever had has been petrol. So I'm having to remind myself every time I fill up!!

Many thanks for reading my drivel!

Richard

Welcome to the club, the more the merrier, a sticker saying DIESEL in the fuel flap might help as a reminder

Welcome aboard Richard. Glad you chose a diesel. The most reliable engine of the lot. First thing to do is check the plenum. This is the void under the covers at the bottom of the windscreen. Have a check of the pipes that carry water and power steering oil at the front of the engine for rubbing together. You will see a large rubber pipe coming up from the bottom of the front of the engine bay on the passenger side, to the egr which is just under the engine cover on the passenger side. The seals in the bottom end of this, sometimes because of age, break and let oil contaminate the bottom half of the pipe. This will allow air to escape and affect performance. Why don’t you find time to come to the nano meet at Four Ashes pub Wolverhampton in September 14/15. We can give it the once over for you. Our guru’s carry quite a few spares, and you may even get a chance to have a T4 check to see if everything is running as it should. Hope to see you there. Meanwhile, enjoy your luxury car. One last bit of advice. Don’t worry about wrong fueling , just smell the end of the filler pipe before you put it in the tank.

Welcome to the club Richard.

You could always fit one of these until you get familiar with diesel.
