Re: possible noisy tappets?

very common while your van has stood the tappets have drained down. Give it a nice run for a few miles and will go no damage caused.

Mine always suffered from one lazy tappet so i got myself some wynns treatment specially for the job and could not be more pleased with the result

Re: van wont start

Re: Sump Plug Sizes. 1.9 DG

Have you checked the tightness of the plug? If it feels tight most likley the sump and plug threads are ok. When the oil change was done was the sump plug washer replaced? If not just get a new washer from any motor factor and just replace it, that should solve your problem without finding a new plug.
