    For those still driving models using the old 2.3 5 cylinder engine:

    If the car has started smoking and starts to use lots of oil and you have noticed that the tappets are getting a little noisy, do yourself a favour and put new tappets in... the old bus went from consuming 1,5 litres of oil every tank to using nothing!

    Have to say I did not think that tappets would make such a difference!

    Cheers,
    Gordon
