Yes, still got the bug.
Having owned a fair number since 2003, the niggles, faults, dodgy messages and various other problems are actually pretty easy to figure out.
I reckon 90% of the issues I have had with the 3.5 V6 cars have been caused by:
Using cheap fuel – always try and use Super Unleaded whenever possible
Add a fuel injector cleaner regularly, too.
Faulty MAF sensor – keep it clean using electrical contact spray
Incorrect grade of oil or cheap oil and a cheap filter. Don’t skimp on this one.
Crankshaft and camshaft position sensors – these are a doddle to change and under £40 for a pair of branded ones.
Infrequent transmission fluid changes. Always use the right stuff, too, when you do.
Damp. Use the car regularly and keep it aired
Debris such as leaves in the windscreen scuttle area.
Faulty tyre pressure monitors – get these disabled by a decent garage. You really don’t need the hassle.
Broken window mechanisms caused by poor quality components. Get these overhauled with a decent German made kit.
And that’s about it. All simple stuff and issues which affect most cars if neglected. Happy motoring.
