" YOUTH is a GIFT "
"AGE is an ART "
"Doesn't mean you get any smarter..just wrinkled and cracked".

"No angler watches nature in a passive way...He enters into its very existence." (John Bailey...Reflections on a Waters Edge)

"Govern a Family as you would catch a small fish....Very Gently." (Chinese Proverb)

"Only those become weary of angling who bring nothing to it but the idea of catching fish." (Rafael Sabatini...1857-1950)

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.

It'll be interesting to know the problem. I Know the late model rodeo's with the 3L common rail engine were doing the same thing, only it was the fuel pressure regulator.

Well its been a week today since the X Trail went in to get looked at. Still no one can figure out what the problem is. But they told me I was in "luck", there is a visiting expert up from south and they are going to give it to him to look at.

Oxygen sensor indicated a lean issue, they repaired an accelerator pedal sensor wire and they have put in a test throttle valve. I have to drive it around for two weeks and report the faults back to them.
