I'm currently waiting to purchase a 2002 VW Golf Diesel with 307k miles on it. It has only had one owner, has been professionally maintained, has all maintenance records, and has all highway miles. The owner is asking at least $4k for the car is it a good deal? [more inside]

How can I get this diesel to start?
I have a 1996 Vandura van with a 6.5L diesel motor.
I stored it all winter...and with a quick jump it started. I drove it around and it did fine, but then right before I got it home it died. Now it won't start.
What am I doing wrong? Do I need to add something to the fuel? The batteries are fine and it cranks, but won't turn over.

I'm thinking about buying a used, diesel, Toyota Land Cruiser to supplement my 1987 BMW 635csi mid-life-crisis car, which is much more fun than practical. [more inside]

I love my car, but am becoming increasingly concerned about gas mileage and environmental responsibility. It isn't a guzzler, but I know I could do better. What are your experiences with diesel cars? [more inside]
