    Sticky vains help needed in Kent/South-East London

    My engine is 1.9tdi PD with the dreaded sticky vain issue, I have visited a few local garages and asked them if they could solve the problem but they just laugh at me when I suggest them to use Mr Muscle. I'm not mechanically minded and wouldn't trust myself doing this so I'm looking for someone that could carry out the labour required to fix this problem, I am willing to pay you what you want.

    Please PM me if you would like to help me.

    They are laughing at you as they know what the result will be and they will get the blame, Mr Muscle is water based and causes the turbine shaft to rust almost instantly which damages the shaft piston ring and seat, then the exhaust fills up with oil. The only solution is to have the turbo removed and rebuilt.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I have been quoted 1000 for a new turbo, this is when one of my friends who has moved away suggested the Mr Muscle. It worked for 6 months so I'm hoping to find somebody that could do this again for me
