    Do you think those tips will apply to most diesel engines?

    I have a 325tds touring and i've found that it's extremely hard to acquire any info on it

    I had my touring 5 minutes and discovered the diesel pump in the engine bay was shot

    Got a replacement engine waiting to be fitted that cam with a pump and all the EWS equipment as I was informed that the pump was coded to the ECU
