Sorrrry guys
something unbelievable happened last night
I went to sharja to pick up my car & while testing it esp
the steering , the hydraulic pipe from power steering pump
had bleeding since its the old pipe & was not replaced ,
I said OK I'll replace it in abu dhabi & chop off the garage fees
, but then again while I was still stuck in sharja traffic the
fuel pipe out from fuel pump directly also blew up since
it's also the old one
so I kept it there & bought front mount inter cooler & will
get it done later on
I enjoy walking back & forth my work place but I miss my
baby

That's too bad, stone-head! The fuel line!!!! Jeez, that's why you read of cars catching fire in summer!

Hope you fix it soon. Since it's pretty clear the time is ripe, perhaps you should replace all rubber belts and hoses - it won't be expensive and sounds like it's time. Also check the rubber bushings for the suspension and chassis as they prolly also need changing since rubber items last pretty much the same. If it's dry and cracking, toss it out!

Is your timing belt rubber?

EDIT: now don't tell me your engine also doesn't have a timing belt!!!! LOOOOL What is the world coming to?

Yes, Rogue, confirmed at 8pm - see you there!

yes , how I missed the pipes , even though it's buried
& hidden in the trunk , I think every body should check
these critical pipes & brake lines as well , -if I just find
a decent brake discs with calipers- & change the pipes
to steel braided tubes
good thing is no fire broke up & it didn't happen on the
highway to abu dhabi
I hope no one will experience the same
