    Default Colt 2.8TD 4x4 DC

    First Mager Problem in 1998 - Noizy sound when driving 100km/p/h
    Had diff overhauled. R 5800
    Replaced all shocks R 1800
    Replaced all tyres R 5200
    Problem still there. I found the problem my self. The wheel nuts did not keep the wheel tight. I put a washer behind each nut. Problem solved. Cost me R30.
    Second Mager Problem in 1999 - Clutch palte needed replacing.
    Cost of repair - R7000
    Third Mager Problem now recent. 2010 - Cylender head cracked.
    Cause: - Radiator blocked at bottom section.
    I got a new complete head from Alert engin parts for R4500
    All parts incl. head cost R5700
    Machanic cost R1500
    New Radiator costs R1700 from Silverton.

    I have spend allot of money so far but yet need to say it is better to have a personal mechanic who you know. The previosly services the machanics never picked up there is a problem with the radiator. Even when I told them i am losing water and my bakkie are running at slight higher temp. The last chap said he put in special radiator fix and I would see a difference in a week. Two months later I have a cracked head. I asked the mechanic who is working on my bakkie now to keep the bakkie for another week and check every thing. He is doing the work himself and not the appies.

    I hope I will be happy after this. I bought the bakkie with 120k on the clock. Current reading is 280k
