I own a 3.0L diesel auto ST and eagerly read the threads here... There is a wealth of info here about the health-status of the ZD30... I'm amazed at the depth of info you guys have about this machine - and the lengths you will apparently go to to monitor and protect the innards of it...
But I wonder how many of you take as much care of your own machines..?
Do you have regular health-checks yourselves..? Do you monitor your own health? Have you any idea what your own oxygen demand/intake is..? Are you short of breath - Are you getting enough oxygen into the system to combust the fuel... What is the quality of the fuel you fill up with... Is your own MAF working as good or as badly as your Nissans?... And the exhaust side of things... Have you had your prostate checked recently?
Men's Health... It makes sense...

Nice analogy.
Any reference to suggested mens health sites?
Testicular, prostate and breast (yes, breast) cancer are serious male medical issues which don't receive as much publicity as female cancers.
Man-up everyone and check what's attached to your chassis :)

Your phyiscal health is relativily simple and analogous to an engines.

If you run your engine on junk fuel it will survive for a while espically
if you keep the filters clean and below the critical level that prevents
them from clogging or increasing the internal pressures that leads to pre-mature
failures.

Similarly with oneself , keep a constant watch out for, and heavily reduce the
un-natural things you do , like not being regularly exposed to direct sunlight,
and heavily reduce the processed food you consume.
You can't aviod it all these days but you can keep things to a level that allows the bodys natural filters to cope.

Exploring Australia and treating each outing as an adventure helps with the equally important mental side of things by reducing stress, except of course for the odd moment you find yourself bogged on a back road.

I think getting bogged is where you get the "exercise" that is just as important as the reducing stress, avoiding too many processed foods, etc etc

That can't be right Porl , otherwise all the Toyota drivers would be thin and the Patrol drivers fat.

Interesting analogy

I thought I was bullet proof and never went to the doctor unless I needed another knee operation.

One day I was feeling sick and the boss (also known as wife) forced me to go to the Doctor. I had cancer.

Women tend to regularly have check ups and look after their health. Us Macho men who think we are bullet proof do not.
