hi been reading this thred with intrest im in uk second hand engines on ebay uk from £2500 sounds alot better value than in us even with sum shipping costs and as far as repairing alot depends how long its had water in the oil and if its been standing its not having the water in the engine its the rust on the surfaces it cuases assuming it hasent got into the combuston chambers take a look on ebay uk cheers dave
here in uk there r heavy duty flushes [mostly used on truks]but a very good cheat is to run engine with laundry fluid for a few hrs flush and repeat a few times it dosent harm the alloy and dosent foam up but realy flushes oil out .not so long ago bought a lateish vw passat that had had a heat exchanger replaced by dealer that tryed to flush system but still showed oil in water so condemed engine i know how hard thay r to flush so took chance 3 days later all sorted 4 bottels of luandry fluid sold car on with £2800 profit so u might be lucky cheers dave
hi all i have the chance of a very cheap 996 front bumper and my 2000 boxster has a badly scraped bumper [on lower edge] was wondering if the 996 bumper will just bolt on or at least fit round the lights etc even if the mountings need some fetteling cheers all dave
i agree to a point i ran a largish repair shop for 20 odd yrs so have a bit of an idea. as i pointed out im not talking about the products that are pretty much oil thickners and band-aids as you rightly say.but there r some very good mostly teflon based products out there. some are used by large manufacturers to coat turbo bearings etc on new cars and trucks to protect on start up and i see from the many posts on here re start up noise [from top end ]maybe a little help might be a good preventative tactic. thay work on a molecular level and in simple terms stick to the surface of the metal rather than draining down when engine is standing thus protecting it for the second or so the until the oil is upto pressure and circulating to all parts of the engine as on more conventional type engines the 1st place the oil is fed to is the mains and end shells and was wondering if this was allso the case with a boxer type set up cheers dave
hi all trying again to post this so sorry if it shows up few times just got a 2.5 2000 87k after 25 yrs with mercs ive allways used slik 50 every few oil changes as it helps on cold start ups as well as other things any one have any thoughts about useing in my boxster im not talking thickners im talking about teflon based products cheers all dave
