have a mechanic check the tranny. a trusted mechanic. also take a look at the turbo fins for chipping and the shaft for play.

saev $$ for fluid flushes, glow plug replacement, glow plug relay and batteries. other than that use your instinct. are you familiar with cars? if so there isnt much else we can tell you from here. i am working on a writeup to help with this.

incase you alreay took a look, what did you think?
