  1. In my experience, the astras do tend to run on the hot side. As long as the electric fan comes on, and drops the temp down OK, i wouldnt worry too much. Thats only my opinion, though!
  2. Thanks, Jeff. having a look now. I appreciate your input, though having looked around my area, i am fairly happy with the deal.
  3. P.S. im getting the finance myself. cos his finance is too expensive!!!
  4. Jeff, i trust this dealer as much as i dare! Ive had 3 previous motors from him, and hes always played fair with me. I like the 14 day return if theres a problem, that he gives me. If i buy privately, i may save a bit of cash, but with this age of car, im buying someone elses problems! lol.
  5. OOps, spaces in the file name...............
  6. JEEP Cherokee 4.0 Limited , 5 Doors, Automatic, Estate, 1997 P Reg , Blue Metallic . Air Bag, Air-Conditioning, bumpers in color, Excellent Condition, Power Steering, Service History, Alloy wheels, Central locking, Electric windows. £3,999 Thats what ive settled on! Its having a thorough check, service, MOT, 6 months road tax and im having the air-con regassed all in the price. I picked this one, because it was the tidiest example i looked at, and it has a good set of tyres all round! I didnt want to splash out too much cash too soon after i bought it! So, did i do allright? or am i being ripped off? Opinions are taken at face value, and very much appreciated! edit note: added a corrected link to the picture so it would display. Newt [ 05.

  7. Cheers fellas. Ive checked out a few, and picked one i like. Just waiting for the finance to come through! Sooo, Got any good links to good helpful Jeep websites, forums, accesory sellers, etc? I have a guy at work with a LPG converted Range Rover, So im aware of the possibilities, there! Thanks again, your input is very appreciated! Johnny Boy
  8. Looking into buying one of these on a 97/98 plate. Anybody here have or had one, and can tell me what i should look out for, if anything? Dealer prices seem to be around £3200 to £4000, depending on equipment level. Sound about right? Im not expecting it to be economical, or cheap to service etc. But i WANT one!!! Any replies mucho appreciated. Thanks all. Johnny Boy.
  9. Got the Program O.K. Thanks. Booted the machine with the floppy, and it picked up the Hard drive O.K. says its a 20.48 GB. Then it gives me options to partition it, and format it, but only to a total of 8.74 GB. Doh! Good try, and thanks for the help, chesters. Ive stripped the board out, and cannot find any identifying markings. As The old Hard drive is corrupt, and wont let me re-install windows, I cannot run a diagnostic program to ascertain whose website to go to for a BIOS update. I give up. As the machine is only worth about £50 in total, I will not waste any more time on it! Thanks to all for the replies, Johnny Boy signing out!
  10. Thanks again, People. @Chesters1 I have searched, and everything seems to point to having to pay for Disk Manager. If it was a new HDD, it might have had it, but I am doing a salvage job for someone who (for whatever reason) does not want to pay! If you could have a look for a Fujitsu version, and send it to me, I would be greatly in your debt, Sir! If you do find one, PM me, and Ill send you my E-mail address. Thanks a lot.
  11. Cheers Guys, but, short of stripping the MB out of the box, and finding an FCC number, its unmarked. Ive checked Fujitsu's Website, and they will sell me OnTrack Disk Manager for $25. I am trying to avoid this ! I have also tried the Cylinders, Heads, Sectors, in the Bios, and it gives me 8.4 GB instead of 20.49 GB.
  12. I suspect I am aiming this one in Newts direction, but here goes to allcomers............. I have an old machine in for repair, and the owner wants me to fit a 20 GB HDD. The motherboard is an unknown, and its BIOS doesnt recognise the disk properly. I need something like On Track Disk Manager, but I cannot find a free download for it. Does anybody know of a suitable alternative, preferably free, that will allow me to fit the large drive, and use its full capacity? Thanks to all in advance of any replies.
  13. Having spent some time in Thailand over the last 2 years, I share your concerns and sympathies. My thoughts go out to the friends I made out there and all those caught in this catastrophe.
  14. Well! It certainly pulled my Chain! Nice One.
