      Hey all. I'm still kicking about with my XLT. Did a nine hour round trip and my heater core decided to leak!

      Also I'm getting the lean codes both banks. Checked all vac lines, did smoke test and saw no leaks. Think it might be fuel pressure. Anyone got a tester to check it? Could be leaking by the oil cap as the line is damp!

      Just as well it leaked now and not in the winter. I see you have a ubiquitous Brummy spanner ;)
      Could the fuel filter be gunged up or inlet manifold leaking?

      You can't get the centre console out without one! :D

      Inlet gaskets were replaced, then re-fitted again after seeing the codes again... I'll try the fuel filter, but it's not super old.

      Aaaaaand it's all back together. Wasn't too bad really... would have been a long day or an easy weekend's work. You don't have to take the dash and steering column out entirely but it kinda helps :D
