Yes Manual .Most of the vehicles out there are manual, some how they don't like automatic , they say manual handles better, especially on icy roads. So next week its change around and install and see how it goes from there. This vehicle down since October last year.

Ayy sorry about your troubles 747, they really say cars and women are the most troublesome things a man will encounter yes..I got my parts to change out my timing belt at Ausco in PoS, on Charles St. Prices were reasonable and they're well stocked so I'm guessing they may have what you need.
I have some suspension parts to change out..no diagnosis yet but I'm hearing some noises. I was thinking about leaving south to try out the tech. at 2 D Max in Chase V'ge for diagnosis and then replacement because I've read the reviews and Jah knows I'm not in an experimenting mood with these techs in south. Has anyone ever had to do a complete suspension overhaul or close to one yet..looking for some advice in terms of cost and where to get parts and what not.

I just changer the shocks nothing else, so far. The thing is the vehicle rides really nice ,that's one of the reason I still have it. The other thing I am worried about is , what started he over heating in the first place. Just hope this engine solves all the problems once and for all.

I know for sure I have some bushings to replace, shocks too probably. These engines aren't cheap and you've been down for a while. Diesel engines push a lot of heat and theyre obviously much more unforgiving than their gas counterparts when they overheat..why not run through the entire cooling system one time to mitigate any risk of overheating again?

Oh my...747.

Joshie the only suspension work I did was replaced the 4 shocks one time. Also changes the link pins, which I got from bobbies. The quality was really good.
It really dose ride soft and comfortable. I also replace the radiator with the original plastic one. 747 I say put back the metal gasket..
Nutty I would say replace the thermostat also.

All very good advice Sniper..except even if 747 uses the metal gasket, his block is damaged :( how much did the suspension repair cost on average?

The suspension cost 200 a side to replace the shocks. Maybe 250 for the fronts can not remember.
The link pins I did myself. Replaced the shocks two years ago at kissoons in curepe. Got the shocks there also.

I honestly think that is a good option. Buy a second hand 2012 model! Selling for around 120-130k.
Good price on the sportage also. If you can, get it sorted out first and then sell for a little more.

Yea but the space home is the issue and we need back a daily....most likely might go brand new with monthly installments so all the money doesn't have to come out the bank one time.

Its there, ended up getting some parts that was preventing me from driving on the road, so now that's soon another useable car as I get insurance. But im gonna sell out everything else.

We should be getting a FU Head and Block for the sportage.....after that, we will sell it for a fair price, this time no doubts or questions on the engine. Never me again and someone elses LOCAL used stuff.....that's headache. Foreign used and done or new for parts

Metal radiators in my opinion & experience DONT dissipate heat as rapidly as a plastic & aluminum.

plastic uses aluminum cores, only the tanks are plastic. Full aluminum is best bet.

Copper/Brass works ok, but u need twin high speed fans to keep it cooling. Long drives and some idling, it will get your temp up a bit. Copper/Brass that is

Gonna mount back up everything tomorrow, installed next head yesterday, rain bothering me.

Confident that this vehicle wont give problems again but its for sale when finished, basically a FU head and block now, new turbo, new injectors, new sensors, new valve seals, new rings and new bearings.....All seals new.
