    Doesn't use a drop of coolant.

    Not particularly using much oil. Always needed a top up every now and again but definitely nothing that I'm concerned about.

    V50 D5 issues

    Loved my car in the beginning....

    Never been hugely impressed with the fuel economy but it is a 2.4 litre engine so I accepted it would never be as good as my old 1.9 TDI.

    B5244T is the block size shared across the various power output versions on that engine. (That being the 2.4L 5 cylinder.) The B5244T5 is the 260 horse version.

    Really easy to replace the side I've done. The other side...... tricky, as its cam sprockets off. I only had a new cambelt fitted about 1000 miles ago so I wont be doing that side for a long time.

    Camshaft seals

    I could be wrong but I think alot of the starting issues were with the plastic throttle bodies on the PSA 2.0 D (4 cylinder) engines found across the earlier V50/S40 cars.

    Gonna try the standard ECU back in when I'm off at the end of the week and take from there. I think I'm being over picky with the car.

    I have a boost gauge. She only max's out 11/12 psi.

    She does have a rica ecu fitted. Maybe I should try the original back in it and see if it sorts itself out. Least I would know either way.
