Power Steering Fluid; Check this before starting engine, or when cold. Top up with Automatic Transmission Fluid,DOT 4. Do not over fill, keep below Max. mark. Recommend it is changed every two years.
Brake Fluid Reservoir; Check regularly and do not fill over MAX mark. This reservoir has a warning light on the dash. If it lights up during driving, stop immediately and check.
Output from Intercooler to Engine input; Check for cracks and splits. Check the securing "Jubilee" clips. Always ensure they are tight. It is possible to give the turbo a "Check" by squeezing this pipe and feel the Turbo pushing against your hand pressure.

Cab Heating Input; This is the air entry to the cab heating, check for leaves, etc at the grill input. Below this input, engine side can be seen a pipe to drain rain water away. ensure this is clear and attached to the main input.
Priming Pump; This cannot be seen in the photo[ A photo can be seen on the next page. Peugeot 9]
If you run out of fuel, fill tank with diesel, at least five litres, then pump the rubber head until a resistance is felt.
Operate the Starter for 15 seconds, with the throttle at 75% down.
If the engine is slow to start, wait for a minute before trying again.
At the bottom of the Priming Pump is a drain screw, this will drain away water from the fuel filter.
To do this: Open screw, then pump Priming Pump until all water is drained.
Output from Turbo; Check for cracks and splits. Check the securing "Jubilee" clips. Always ensure they are tight. It is possible to give the turbo a "Check" by squeezing this pipe and feel the Turbo pushing against your hand pressure and listening for "Wheezes" which indicate a leak in the system.
Oil Dipstick; Check the oil regularly with the dip stick, which is placed through the oil filler cap.
Thermostat Housing; Not much you can do here but there are two electric cables, which are senders to the dash panel. Ensure the plugs are clean and tight. One sender is the temperature gauge meter.
Oil Filler; The filler cap doubles up as the dipstick retainer. Take out the dipstick and unscrew the cap. Fill here with 10W-SAE40 oil. Do not over fill.
Manifold Breather pipe. Check this flexible rubber pipe. On my vehicle due to vibration this pipe had scored/worn through, causing Turbo input to blow out oil from the manifold. I repaired the hole and placed a protective pipe around it to take the wear.
Breather pipe to the Air Filter output. This pipe is taken from the Oil filler body, taking engine oil fumes to the Air Filter output, which is then sent to the Turbo input. Check for splits and Jubilee clips for tightness. Any defects here will stop lubrication to the Turbo input.
Turbo Input. The Turbo Input comes from the Air filter output. This pipe is located in the worst spot for wear and road stone damage. Check regularly for splits and perishing. Any damage to this pipe will allow road contamination into the Turbo and cause expensive damage.
Throttle Cable. Check for damage. Grease the inner cable at the Diesel pump body. Do NOT adjust, this can cause damage to the pump and engine.
