    You may find that it shares those parts with a Fiat model....perhaps a 500....check it out with EPER...this is an FCA file on all their cars....cross checking that may help?

    Hi battery charging is fine with regards to the common rail pressure valve, would this be proved by priming the fuel manually before starting?

      Front flush proper Hoat 05 and 'stat mod with wobble pin') will cure most 90%+ of what people describe as overheating and "possible" head gaskets.

       

      See #3 Best of luck..

      Could go on forever about these probs. Included would be scanner and key dance diagnostics [both throw wobblers at you]

      Had help from a friend in the USA who looks up using vin, also pointed me to a guy in the UK so could use them as an alternative source.

      Do not buy anything unless using your vin. Three occasions reg# has pointed in the wrong direction, which would have had serious consequences,

      Im lucky in that my local mechanic allows me to find/purchase parts [dealer rad was 400...i paid 88] for him to install. We all have old vehciles, most parts are original. After playing with mine I decided to 'shotgun' on parts. I bought front shocks [complete] rear shocks bushes, rad, thermo and sensor, egr valve and egr solenoid [that was 8 quid from usa dealer] and alternator. All this for under 500

      Labour on installing all this was 490 plus fluids. Last year I had both front hubs replaced, I sourced and they installed for 100 quid.

      The water pump [clue here] and timing was done just prior to my purchase [100 miles] When I tested the vehicle it was fine and I bought. Howvere the first really steep incline into the red it went.

      The clue here is the guy must have had probs, someone had the idea water pump and timing etc. They obviously had a rad prob they didnt notice/resolve.

      So I come in on the back-end of this, and having read this forum decided to flush. Flushed well to clean. However, if the crude is solid makes no difference. I figure they put a sealer in there. Getting home after the flush noticed a leak [the leak was clean coolant]. Back at the garage straight away [meanwhile took the step of ordering everything could possibly need]

      Parts arrived morning after. Rad out, twas so bad couldnt blow thru it hardly, pin holes in a few places. Thermo gummed up to point it was stuck with crude, thermo sensor was goosed to.

      They are old vehicles, theres inherent problems. Often they have the original parts, often quick fixes are just put me on [bucket under a leaking roof not fixing the roof] You put new part in which then puts pressure on another thats dozen yrs old. 

      I look at keeping this thing for 10yrs or more, thats how I view my purchases.

      I work in the USA quite a bit [Im a aid/disaster relief worker] 20 yrs ago I bought  a truck. That vehcile has 440k miles. Maintenance of highest order ,means it has the original engine/transmission.Dont let a tiny wiggle become a wobble.
