    Hi all,
    Just bought our first motorhome yesterday its a Talbot Express Swift Kon-tiki 2.5 TD. I just bought it and was driving it back home and within less than a mile the gearstick went floppy!! How embarrising , ive had this happen to me before.......On another vehicle that is! So after the shock of thinking ive just blown 10.5k I got underneath and had a good look turns out it was just the gear linkage had popped out phew relief anyway drove it home about 80 mile and it was running sluggish and stuttering put some fresh diesel in it and she was ok then. Think it had been standing a while look forward to more adventures in her and meeting likeminded people. All the best John&Linda
