      Hi all
      Still got my rangy..now with 154,000 on the original engine
      I had the two filters changed on my LPG system changed and that
      Has helped..runs smoother on a motorway trip
      Just had the mot done the other week and it sailed through sitting on a secondhand set of 18inch hurricane alloys in excellent nic
      I had a quick chat with the guy doing the mot about the top end noise
      Only when the engine is warm..it sounds fine on start up from cold
      He said it's probably low oil pressure and a possible worn cam with the tappets gunked up
      My question is
      Could anything be tried 1st before I go down the route of what sounds like a top end rebuild ??
      As always thanks in advance

      Hi All
      Gonna give my 4.6 hse a service..its a 1998 on a r plate
      just ordered all the service items as a package
      looking for some advice when attempting the service
      i have a replacement fuel filter are they easy to replace or is the a process i need to do ?
      any help will be greatly appreciated ?
      the other thing which i put down to old age and 150,000 on the clock is once the engine gets warmed up there is a distinct tappet noise ?
      is there a quick fix to pour in any one can recomend or i will just live with it
      checked out that restore fluid on the internet is that just a magic non working potion
      has anybody used it ??
