Hi Lanciak69 I never clean mine as I removed mine instead. Leaving the oil filler chamber nozzle open to breath and the nozzle on the trottle housing plugged.

TBH a P reg Uly with 370K miles I wouldn't be spending anything on it.

If it runs rough then I would live with it

ye of little faith,with 370,000 miles on the cock it looks better than cars i looked at less than 100.000 miles on the clock,the only sign of wear on the interior is the gator round the gear stick,and the end of the drivers arm rest.the body is totally rust free,every electrical works,and its mine brought and payed for so i shall be fixing it:p

quite right(y) its yours you own it no hp if it brakes down tomorow you wont be paying for it for the next 4 years .lets hope its many years of ulysse ownership hope mine does that many miles.had a fiat tempra once had 250000 when i sold it to my boss 6 month he got out of it and spent not a penny on it :)
