    I recently had mine done at zf and I needed to run before they could bleed it fully.

    Itís quite fiddly to bleed but it does resolve the pedal travel.

    Re: Amarok true Fuel consumption

    i get 7.7ish on a run to dbn with just me. But coming back up with a boat in Tow it can easily get up around 12-13l/100km. Also going 100-110km/hr is very different from going 120.

    Cooling failure means either the head gasket is blown and is pumping hot exhaust gasses into the cooling system, or the fan, radiator etc is not doing the job. Or one can lead to the other.

    Do you think the merc is dismal or was just priced badly?
