    Good morning all!!! Happy New Year!!! I fired up the Transit a couple of times over the weekend and I noticed a small amount of soot on the driveway and thought about a discussion I read on here about the turbo boost problems with carbon build up. I sure hope my 2018 is not starting out with problems!!!

    Sticktion eliminator, used every 50k miles will keep turbo bearing free of burnished oil residue & help pull crap from engine internals.
    Used it lots in my sprinter, really spiffed up the turbo on it.

    Spent last 1.5 days helping a guy in 05 sprinter. Had no mechanical knowledge & heaps of mechanical issues. Left awhile ago on a roll-off to shop able to take him in. (with)
    "Black death, wheel bearings, starter, glow plugs....... Big list.
