    General Motoring Discussion
    Yonks ago, I went to college with a girl who claimed her dad's Senator was ex-Police. I had no reason not to believe her. It was white, had a black cloth interior and ran on steelies. She said the engine had been 'tuned' for Police work. Watching 'Motorway Patrol's Howling Lights' or something...

  6. TS Engine state 90.000 miles versus 130.000 miles ?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi! About a 16V Euro 2 2.0 engine.. What do you think about the engine states between 90000 and 130000 miles ? Should there / would there be much of a difference ? The likelihood of a failure is higher the higher you go, but an engine's lifetime is far beyond 20000 right ? Both engines would...

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I'm having my GTA serviced in a couple of weeks, it's at 79.000km soon now, and the bloke suggest using Quaker State oil; he says it's good and that they (QS) offer an engine warranty for 400.000km(!).
