    PicantoJon reacted to Marm Toastsmith in Marm's Motors: Audi Improved!   
    Had a go at the Audi today. As per @SiC's suggestion I decided just to clean up first before getting carried away with replacing valve cover gaskets. Used my new pela-style oil pump to clean out the old oil then cleaned up with some wd40. Some potato cam pics attached - before and after. Would have been a horrible job without the pump.
    Unfortunately it still won't start - I think the oily leads were likely a red herring - they've probably been soaked for months/years. It's raining now and I CBA but if and when the sun comes out I'll start pulling plugs out and checking for a spark. At least now removing the plug won't fill the bore with dirty oil.

    Decided to press the Micra back into service as I haven’t had time to do anything with the Audi. With an ill mother I’ve had lots of local running about to do and it’s the ideal car for that really.
    Got it MOT’d today… clean pass… the tester says it’s one of the cleanest ones about.
    Such a good little car, it’s the best £200 I’ve ever spent and really I mustn’t ever think about selling it again.

    So after 4 pages of not knowing WTF was going on, it turns out some guinea pigs sent young Mr Fowler all the way to Somerset to buy them a Golf and disguise it as a Volvo B10M.  Those are some very demanding rodents.

    Home. No pez shot as filled from a can. Weather was absolutely filthy so no fannying about. 
    Drove really tight and strong given the mileage.
    Anyway I have a very clean boot badge. #VAGLife


    More later as housework duties to do and keep Mrs SiC sweet.
     
    A few quick pictures for what £1400 gets you nowadays. CHEAPEST DRIVING GTI IN THE COUNTRY (Maybe)


     Not as filthy as you might think it could be.


    Headlining is dropping

    No stereo but...

    No warning lights!

    IME that works OK until one of them has blocked your missus in when she's trying to get to work and she can't move it  because you accidentally left the keys in your coat pocket which you are currently wearing 300 miles away
    GLWC, may your voyage be bon

    I have a long-ish connection at Castle Cary.
     It's very twee countryside station-esque.
    I also suspect the 166 heading to Westbury will be what I get on it's way back.

    Slightly disappointing that it's not Kiltox's  van so we could look forward to the 3 month journey home write up.

    The old man is currently in intensive care after having his knackered atrial valve replaced. Even though I know he's in the absolute best place, I'm still worried shitless. 
    Not sure I'll be sleeping tonight.

    I've stayed in that holiday inn! Interesting area with the planes dive bombing overhead into London City Airport and Canning Tahhhn Underground just up the road, that place is a fucking maze... 
    Still no idea what is going on! 😂

    I was going to say "to tone down the orangeyness of the display messages,  don't buy a PSA product". But then I didn't know about the left hand sticky out thing 😄
