New low mileage berlingo
#1
Smile 
Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie to this forum but not to Berlingos, having previously had a 53 plate multispace back in 2005.
Anyway, I recently had the good fortune to purchase this little beauty from an elderly lady in Chesterfield last week.

Its a 2001 1.9d Forte.
2 owners from new.
Genuine fully documented 64,000 miles (4,800 miles in the last 10 years)
Interior and exterior like new.

The only mods I intend to do is change the cassette player to a DAB radio and replace the standard wheel trims with some a bit nicer.
The wife calls it Maud as its old and slow, but I love it.

Welcome to the forum.Has it had the cambelt/water pump replaced? These things can be forgotten on low mileage vehicles.

You got one with the right colour!

And so well-kept paint. This one must have spent most of its time in a private garage, away from sunlight.

You may want to consider getting the valve clearances checked and adjusted, to get some pep back into the engine(not that the 1.9D ever had much 'get up and go')
It's normally done at 100K miles, but with this car's age, it may be time anyways.

There are also fuel additives that can help clean out carbon deposits.
Unless the previous owner was the 'Little, Old lady from Pasadena', it was probably never run hot enough to burn it clean the last decade.

Thanks for the advice guys. It had the cambelt done at 58,000 miles.
Not sure about the water pump and valve clearances, so I'll get those checked.

It was kept in a garage when not being used and was regularly serviced.
One year it covered just 19 miles, basically to the MOT station and back.
I'll also look at the fuel additives. What brand do you recommend?

Hi darceysdad . Have a look at the Archoil site , they do some fantastic products to suit your application and by the way the car looks fantastic. I have a 02 Mk1 in Green which ive owned for 10 years now as my daily driver ,I have got 80k miles up now , 27 when I bought it and mines a genuine 1 previous owned . I love it and I honestly don't think ill ever be getting rid .
