    W210 E 220 CDI air intake torque nut specs, pleaseeee!

    One of the intake manifold nuts is missing(picture attached below to show which bolt it belongs to), which means the bolt spins when the engine's on and it's causing a lot of rattling. So bad that the engine noise leaks into the cabin, along with the road noise that those terrible Michelin...

    Good suv's in Sweden?

    So a relative who lives in Sweden said that he's looking forward to buying a luxury SUV after he gets back. It's Sweden, so naturally, Volvo seemed like an obvious option. But I prefer a pre 2007 Lexus LX, for reliability reasons and such. I've heard that the old XC 90s had drivetrain problems...
