    Engine Sealer (external)

    Dirko products are as good as it gets I suspect https://www.elring.com/en/products/sealing-compounds/ I've used the 'gray' with good results (it's the typical RTV sealant and is very tenacious). With a thorough clean and a 'key' it's probably the best chance for a 6 month cure.

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    You're not entirely alone there MJ. From a book I'm reading, this: ''And meanwhile we must learn to live with our ignorance. Ignorance is a compelling reason for not believing. not for believing''. You (MJ) don't know where the world is heading. I don't know where the world is heading. But at...

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    Robots don't buy stuff and pay taxes - and the unemployed are somewhat limited in that too. There isn't much that we are doing that is sustainable. Where it ends is anyone's guess.

    Things you would like but can't get anymore

    I've done the Seven type kittie car too - nightmare! Since my smart fortwo though, I don't think I'd go back to even a 'conventional' seat height. Not just the ease of getting in and out but the vantage point. 'Conventional' that I have driven since getting used to the smart I just don't like...

    ^^ The UK Covid-19 mortality rates for the poorest areas compared to the wealthiest is double.

    Things you would like but can't get anymore

    There's a SUV/Crossover out there with a raised seating position that will make your life a whole lot easier. IMO, it's why they are so popular with the elderly.

    R129. First drive in months. Grinding noise from OSR when turning left

    So a steel plate bends under the centrifugal force of cornering left? Have you checked the wheel bearing?

    Do you like an engine to look good and a clean engine bay?

    More observation than assumption. How many 'what's the cheapest oil' threads have there been? How many 'how do I delete X, Y and Z?' (bodge) threads rather than sorting and maintaining it properly?

    Do you like an engine to look good and a clean engine bay?

    Maintenance - I prioritise it over all else. The internal state of engines that have faults that turn up on this forum is disgusting. Carbon, sludge - I have none of that. The external appearance of an engine is no indication of its internal health (the bit that actually matters) no more than...

    Do you like an engine to look good and a clean engine bay?

    You asked - I answered - as did others. How you cannot understand my posts will remain a mystery. Clear as day to anyone else.

    Do you like an engine to look good and a clean engine bay?

    I haven't expressed any 'negativity towards people wanting to do this' - merely that it is of no interest to me and serves no purpose in proper maintenance - for which I am a stickler. Not in the least 'bugged'. Perhaps others are at my response but don't ask questions you might not like the...

    Wheel bearing? It will have been missed if the park brake was on. There's a reason the noise is only present when turning left.

    Not what I said.

    Do you like an engine to look good and a clean engine bay?

    The one with the engine in best health. Or an owner that devotes their efforts to maintenance not primping. Cleaning an engine does nothing for its well being or cure any internal ills any more than washing your face will rid you of cancer.

    Do you like an engine to look good and a clean engine bay?

    Nope - only a preference. Engines run fine whether clean or dirty on the outside. They really don't care.

    Do you like an engine to look good and a clean engine bay?

    Only the cleanliness of the engines internals matter. And you don't get that by buying your engine oil on the basis of cheapest.

    Conspiracy theorists gloat over their assumed stupidity of the masses thus elevating themselves as something superior. They present themselves as mavericks but in reality are following a narrow pre-defined path. They have no comprehension of a wider public having absorbed information from a...

    You must really believe C-19 to be deadly Chip Chop. Lockdown - in England especially - is all but over. And here you are banging away on a keyboard when you could be out and about doing all sorts. Is it too scary out there for you?

    Oh I know it goes against the prevailing wisdom, but I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest the reason she has symptoms is because she actually came into contact with the coronavirus.
