Thank you for your response, Scott, and I am sorry that you are so far away and not here in LM. We could surely use you.

The engine/motor, whatever, is apart and that in itself took forever. Now we are looking for trustworthy diesel mechanics to tell us what is wrong and what is needed.

The reason we went diesel in the first place was that diesel vehicles go for a long time. Was this one not maintained properly or was it driven too hard or maybe it is just a lemon? Everyone agreed at first that it was in great shape. Now we have gone from a turbo charger/valve problem to a worn out valve lifter; and everything in between.

We'll keep us posted on our finds. Some good energy and/or finger crossing would be appreciated. And Scott, at least Dan knows about engines and stuff. He'll be helping from the States but any information or suggestions could be helpful. Thank you again. Cruz
