Issues with my '98 156 2.0 - major or minor?
First of all; great forum. And yes, I am addicted.
I bought my '98 156 2.0 TS (67k miles) in July, and it has been running with no major problems since.
BUT, I am facing the 'usual' 156 issues:
Unstable idle (not affecting performance, just annoying)
Variator worn (diesel sound at start-up)
Kangarooing when cruising at about 2200-2300 rpm
Panel covering fuses keeps falling off (damn italians)
Weird burnt plastic smell after driving (clutch, maybe..?!)
Very bumpy ride - could this be due to 17'' tyres?
I can feel every little change in the surface of the road, but the suspension seems to work ok when riding over larger bumps.
Any thoughts on the above issues?
