Hello all, another newbie out of his depth, well not completely,,yet.
My 18yr old son has a bizarre fascination for 80's cars and detests the Seat Arosa that I provided as his 1st insurable car.(think inbetweeners car)
I customer of mine had to clear his yard and GAVE us a not unnattractive 1993 Saxon blue diesel with GTi alloys. As with most free cars it was free for a reason which gives me an opportunity to impart some of my hard earned car knowledge, such as it is.
I drilled out the fuel tank bolts from under the seats but the mush heads appear stuck, are they welded?
As a 1.7ish with a turbo is this a XUD7?
The filter purge button does not circulate fuel as I would expect but pressurised against the pump, even with the ignition on and stop solenoid open, is this correct? This means to purge effectively you have to remove the supply from the injection pump and purge into a container.
We havent had the car on the road yet but it starts and appears to run well.
Apologies for asking dirty Diesel questions on a GTi forum.
Thanks in advance
