When I bought my massive white/blue elephant a few years ago I felt a great paranoia about how unreliable these P38's were known to be..
Over the past few months I've been replacing components on the almost daily basis "no joke" as it seems if I replace one thing something immediately falls right the hell off..
A few weeks ago She plummeted to the bumpstops due to a bad compressor, no biggie I thought so a rebuilt unit was fitted...
Literally 2 days later another "beep beep" EAS fault and it turned out I needed to replace the valveblock O rings due to a massive leak emerging from one of my O rings lol so I did that and she was fine for another week until I get to my current issue!
Which I hope to be fixed tomorra when a new sensor comes!
I won't mention the suspension bushes that disintegrated or the headliner that dropped when i had the sunroof open and filled the car with orange dust that got into my eyes and throat!
So while snot sneezing and tearing up like a right bastard, I was blind - good times...
The alternator and all the idlers failed..
Blend motors went to shit..
Sunroof pissed water in "fixed"
The list goes on
pollen filters leaking "fixed"
Rear calliper's that seized, and a pad that flew out and rendered the rear left caliper inoperative so I had to drive home with 1 working caliper.
Exhaust blow "fixed"
Battery failed straight after I replaced the suspension.....
I seem to be bonding with this thing the more it breaks the more I like it!
A great distraction, I don't even get mad when it breaks!
Perhaps I've gone mad..
Everyone that knows me frequently remarks that it is cursed!
Maybe it is supernatural!
Back to reality.
