Petrolicious shop : Ferrari 400 by Niels van Roy Design


This is what Niels (http://nielsvanroij.nl/) has to say about his work:

Compared to many other cars from the brand with the prancing horse this front-engined V12 2+2 Ferrari is a not-so-standard-choice and a bit unloved. The 400 is a true grand tourer, made by Ferrari between 1972 and 1989. It was the very first Ferrari to be available with an automatic transmission, enhancing this grand tourer’s character even more. With subtle design by Leonardo Fioravanti the three-box 400 is one of my favorite GT’s. It is long, stretched, pure and elegant. It just communicates this ease of driving over long stretches of autobahn or perhaps beautiful country roads. Instead of being overly aggressive, as many sportcars still are, the 400 is understated but self-assured. A well-executed piece of automotive design.

Oil in Coolant - fix / repair - preventative maintenance.

I thought this was a very interesting item to highlight. Clearly a lot of tips and tricks can be found in FChat. I wish there was some kind of knowledge database or Wiki that keeps track of items like this:

https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/oil-in-coolant.376670/

In this case it's very nicely written up with supporting photo's and details about the parts and a homemade tool to take the item out.

Perhaps I should make a start now. Just like the compatibility items and parts resources this can come in quite handy. For now I will label blogs like this: "fixit" and will make it available on the sidebar.

In case you don't suffer this specific problem you still might want to consider it a fairly cheap preventative maintenance job.
