Well, people are usually happy to help, but a few more details will be useful.

No we don't. The 17 is quick, insurable and a lot less hassle to leave in place than to go modifying Peugeots for the infinitesimal gain offered by the 1.9 which is inherently less tuneable anyway.
But either way, it isn't worth it as anybody who has ever tried selling one will tell you.

From what I can see, I think this is what it's all about.

By the time you're old enough to know it all, you can't remember why you were learning.

fitted the new rad today but the car was still a bugger to start ,but i fear the worst and i think the head gasket has gone .
I was using my xantia manual to take the head off but there are differences, so is there somewhere i can download a manual to keep me right?
I have tried the search but do not seem to have any luck
any help at this stage would be much appreciated !
