    Re: Mahindra overheat

    highly doubt the welsh plug fell "into" the engine. the cooling system should be under pressure and the plug should therefore be blown out.

    Just my observation

    its a pity the 2004-2006 Ranger never came in a single cab 4x4, that would fit right into the budget. the supercabs go for that, but the load bin is smaller than a single cab.

    indeed, do quite a few Subaru aircons. very seldom replace a compressor. the "O" rings on the pipes to the compressor tend to leak. they are generally quite a noisy compessor.
