Re: OAT What does it mean

It stands for Organic Acid Technology, basically means the coolant you put in wont dissolve your engine from the inside out like older coolants could have (though I have never personally come across a problem caused by coolant damage myself).

Hi and :welcome:

What does it need to be road worthy? Anything a garage can do for £250 is probably the kind of thing you can do yourself for a lot cheaper!

Welcome! It hasn't been mentioned yet but prevention is better than the cure, stay away from add-a-leafs at all costs! Devils handy work.

Drive shaft turns in neutral
