Ebay bargain?

It was once said that the Devil would never dare to cross the River Tamar into Cornwall for fear of ending up as a filling in a Cornish Pasty.

Not easily. Completely different beasts the A's and B's

There's a multitude of reasons why a DTi won't run, but I've never heard of the EGR valve actually turning them into a non runner

That's what I thought, may be an easy fix.

Big heads up on this one guys.

Look at the sellers feedback, he's sold this very same Fronty before, very recently, for £625. The feedback states "Not as described"

Last time it was described as
For sale spares or repair
Vauxhall frontera sport 22 Dti
Isuzu engine .
Very clean inside and out runs and drives but in limp mode

Thanks for the head up, but for less than £200 is a bargain surely.

If the description is an Isuzu engine and it's a 2.2dti then the buyer as got a bolt hole to back out of the deal for not as described. 3.2 petrol maybe, but not the 2.2 unless it's had an engine swap.
