Are you scared of your CRD?

I've got an 08 crd wk that I've had about a year and put less than 8k miles on. It's got 64k miles overall. I've put 3 glow plugs and another solenoid on but other than that it's been fine. I did put the new intake tube on it when I got it since it had the orange seal one. I'm just kind of scared of the swirl thing. Anyone else in the same boat? Just curious. I'm toying with selling it.

Re: Are you scared of your CRD?

ive owned mine for a year with only a roof leak problem...

GDE [green diesel engineering] makes a tune to get rid of the swirl motor code
its roughly $750 but remember its still a tune for better performance and mileage
