    Coil Springs Why do they break so easily?

    Joking aside, there does seem to be a correlation with the stiffer springs breaking more often. You see this a lot on french cars, the petrols are fine but it's the diesels that suffer the broken springs much more often. I think another contributing factor is we are now just about solely on progressive springs rather than the older linear ones we used to have, this means most of the everyday work is done by only a small portion of the spring whereas that load would have previously have been spread equally over all the coils .

    Because your sprint weighs about as much as a half empty packet of fags.....

    Expansion tank empty twice in 4 days.

    As said egr cooler, I also had the heat exchanger leak, it's under the oil filter and the leak shows up as coolant on the n/s engine mounting.
  9. I don't disbelieve you one little bit, a few people are speculating where the price is going to be in a few years seen to be a bit out of touch.I've been looking for a pristine example for three years or so and they are just not out there at any money, even looked at the hexagon car for 50k, 10k more than I wanted to spend and it wasn't all that good and that has sold now. As for the numbers argument there were way less made than many other classics of note, and the Brexit and fossil fuel argument is just laughable. Just to edit.... the hexagon car was 45k not 50k like I said, must be getting old, they do however have one for 50k now though it seems.
