Car Mechanics April 2020

In this issue of Car Mechanics:

Welcome to the April 2020 issue of Car Mechanics. In this issue we take an in-depth look at replacing engine turbochargers – including a 60-step guide to removing and fitting a replacement turbo to the 1.6 DV6 diesel engine fitted to a variety of carmakers models. We’ve bid blind (apart from seeing the auction’s images/description) – and won an Audi A4 Cabriolet 1.8T S line for our next project car – find out what we have bought and the jobs to do over the next six months. In our Clutch Clinic feature we show you how to renew a clutch on a BMW 3-Series/Z3 model on the driveway. In the second-part of our subframe feature, last month we took out the front subframe on a MGF/TF, this month we remove the rear subframe (the engine end). Our buying guide is on the Nissan Juke from 2010-2019, while our parts price guide looks at the 2011-2018 Peugeot 508. In our Back-to-Basics series we look at engine coolant checks. With the potential introduction of Ethanol E10 petrol fuel in the UK, we wade through the propaganda to discover how E10 might affect the typical motorist. On our service ramp this month is a 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1750T, while in our Electronic Diagnostics series is a 2013 Volvo V40 2.0D with the five-cylinder motor. Plus much more and all our regular features…
