    Thanks for your reply. I guess I'm looking at the fuel delivery system. I've been told my car has the correct injectors but fuel octopus and inlet from a 500 not the 5.6. Thanks

    Thanks Guys. Cars done 198k FSH always serviced with correct C3 low SAPS fully Syn. There is a small oil leak at the oil cooler seals which will be sorted at the same time. At no time has the car shown up that it needs more oil. Surely not enough to affect the tensioner. Car shows no...
