And she's a honey  :002:

I would say that, but then I'd be accused of being a dirty old man  :164:
I am curious about that blue thing on her nose, is that some kind of a jewelry thing she picked up in India ??
( I hope that does not offend anyone )

in fact I think there was a picture on here that showed metal particles in a water pump
Yes - it was my pump - a lot of metallic chips inside. In my case for sure it was the cause of pump leakage. Drained the coolant and replaced the pump - so far so good. 18000 kms and no trace of leakage anymore.

I'm of a different mind, having been in motor vehicle technology most of my life and having seen some of the things that can happen to engines it's really important even with modern engines to look after them early on in their life. That first oil change early on is really important, as it clears out any metal residue from manufacturing and running in. Also I change the coolant early on as well, because you will also get metal particles from machining in the waterways, in fact I think there was a picture on here that showed metal particles in a water pump, so I give it a good flush out and  renew coolant, in the big scheme of things it's only a few pounds. also I fit a magnetic sump plug you'll be surprised what that picks up. I use Honda type 2 coolant not the pro stuff, buy it from car place a lot cheaper and same spec but different color and about 15 for 5 litre. Well that's my thoughts on looking after my engine, I dare say everybody thinks differently,but that's what makes the world go round.  :158:
