    Default heck of a skrik

    Well, traveling merrily on my way to witbank this morning, nice and peaceful cruise through the traffic, and hear a loud pop, and all hell breaks loose. loud whistling noise, check the rear view mirror for cops, but can't see ANYTHING due to the immense cloud of black smoke behind me. Great, broke the motor. pull over fairly rapidly (maybe too rapidly, judging by the 2 natkolle my assistant's eyeballs left on the windscreen) and stop. Opened the bonnet, and engine is idling sweetly. rev the engine, and I hear cops again....

    Turns out the turbo pipe burst drove slowly to GWM Boksburg, and they fixed it in 20 minutes. Great service.

    Ja it's funny hey!

    My neighbor also bought a diesel steed the other day and blew his turbo hose towing his drag bike up a mountain pass.

    So my bakkie will not win a economy run, but in my 8000km I have had no engine trouble.

    Those Steeds regularly blows their turbo pipes apparently, fit a stronger pipe.

    If it blows a hole you will probably be able to temporarily fix it with Nito tape. Strong stuff.

    Unfortunately mine wasn't just the clamp. Had a 10cm long split in it. Agents said the replacement part is a stronger one. Will have to see. Mine has 21000km on now.
