Dear BikeDoc,Wow, you really have had a real run of bad luck.
It's a tricky decision to make, whether to keep putting money into it and hoping you've fixed everything, or not, but as someone mentioned already, when a Multi (or any other car for that matter) gets towards it's 'teens', they start acting like them, and costing about he same
Personally, I think I'd break it for spares and get something else, but that depends on being able to buy something before recouping what you can from selling the parts, and having the space to store it.
I truly feel for you, and hope you sort something without too much further expense.
Just to say a quick 'Thank You' for your reply to my earlier posting - and, I am REALLY HAPPY to say a FANTASTIC garage has telephoned me today, as they promised to, and have quoted me an AMAZING price for the list of problems I gave them! Such a weight lifted from my shoulders! I want to thank all the very kind Members of the Fiat Forum who gave me ideas, thoughts, support and information - wonderful Forum!!
With thanks (and relief!!),
