genral diesel modifacation and power gain

Hi im not sure if anyone is interested but i recently purchased a cheap (2k) 2002 33d m sport touring auto it needed a little work that turned out to be a lot so i got on with it in my evenings after working on mercedes all day in my garage with 2 post ramp so i fixed the starting problem it had a bad injector after performing leak off test no5 needed replacing 50 from e bay so i did this but while i had the intake off i removed the swirl flaps blank plates 30 e bay so car was now running well now to replace both front arms and rear mounts 100 each side euro car parts easy job with ramps + 4 new tyres 250 noisy cheapies i do not recomend sunny tyres ,so at this point now time to fix gearbox rumble at 70mph draind oil removed sump changed lock up solenoid and 1 other & filter and oil total cost 200 this helped a lot but its still there slightly at 70mph i guessing i will need torque converter next another 200 plus oil 60 im saving for this at the moment ... Any way after i did the gearbox i took the car to DAV chip tune in eastbourne 250 and it was like night and day the car is now a snarling animal if need be and a smooth cruiser the rest of the time 230 bhp now im very happy with it

Reset the mpg by pressing the BC button until you see your mpg. Then hold the BC button for a couple of seconds.

I didn't understand anything else you said. Punctuation goes a long way towards getting help on this forum.
