      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.

      Don’t know about that. It’s colder in West Tennessee than it is in Alaska.
