It's very subjective but she did feel better on the way home, a bit less lively than before. But it wasn't really a decent test as, contrary to my instructions to set them at 18psi, they had put them at 23psi. So I need to do another test run at 18psi (19-20psi when warmed up)
Also, they had a deal on where they would do a 28-point safety check for free, so I took advantage of that. I do check her regularly but it never does any harm to have a second pair of eyes checking me. I was very pleased when they came up with only 3 comments:
1. The sump is leaking (safety ?) They had guessed why as they had quite a problem getting the car into one of the bays.
2. One of the exhaust pipes was blocked (safety?) I explained about back pressure, not sure they were convinced.
3. One of the rear brake pipes was touching the chassis.
So just the third one to have a look at. The original builder can take a bow
They also advised a brake fluid replacement, which is fair enough, as the recommendation is to change it every 3 years. Might get that done. Could do it myself, but at £35 I might let them do it.
First time I have seen her up on the lift so took the opportunity to have a good nose around. Interesting.
