Getting there slowly with my nightmare 2.4JTD 20v that I bought from a dodgy dealer. I'm determined to get it sorted, trouble is it now has to be sorted as cheaply as possible as it looks like I'm being made redundant very soon
I'm getting overboost problems again with P0236 and P0238 codes. I can faintly hear some air escaping somewhere, so I'm going to replace all induction and vacuum pipes, clean out all relevant sensors and see what happens.
Also the brakes are terrible, they do stop the car but there is no feel and you have to press the pedal hard. New discs and pads are on the cards, I have a feeling the car was used by the last owner in a city, so pads are glazed etc.
The cars had a new turbo, belts, poxy body electrics sorted and other problems fixed, so once these last few bits are sorted I can actually enjoy driving it!
I've read as much as possible on the forum for getting all the problems sorted, but if someone could clarify or help me with a few things that would be great:
- Where to buy the turbo boost solenoid if it is buggered?
- Where can I buy the top and bottom silicone hoses as cheaply as possible? I've looked at Silicone Hoses - AutoSiliconeHoses.com ® - Buy Silicon Hoses Direct or Call 0844 8000 669
and they're really cheap, but I guess it's not as simple as buying universal stuff? The vacuum hoses are simple enough.
- A good but cheap recommendation for disc/pad combo
Thanks in advance
