Clever Fronty!

Postby Skinnyminny on Thu Mar 09, 2017 7:27 pm

Had a job interview today about 70miles away and my daily driver wouldn't start so Frontera farm truck (aka Teagan) was my knight in shining armour!

Daily made me late faffing under the bonnet so I absolutely pounded her down the motorway, not only did I arrive on time but she is running so smoothly now! Italian tune up was all the poor old girl needed. Even my engine management light has gone out.

Having a glass of wine or three in her honour tonight :drink:

Not just for muddy fields and emergency hay runs, clearly :thumbup:

Thinking that you've probably burnt alot of soot/crud out of the EGR valve and it's breathing alot better now.
Same used to happen to me when the daily runner Fiat let me down, the 2.8 had to come into play. Only difference was that it cost me alot more in derv. The only time the Fronty let me was when the back wheel fell offf but that was my fault and not the trucks. :oh yer:

Surely you mean "Mexican tuneup" ?
