Welcome!

I changed my fuel filter today, at 194k mi. I'm hoping it had been done at some point in the past, even if I can't find any evidence in the service history. It was pretty nasty, as was the fuel that came out of it!
Man, that is nasty! It might be worth checking fuel quality at the rail to make sure it is staying clean over the next year

Have the injectors cleaned. Look for this service in your city or town. Use Google search to see the shops’ star ratings.
Certainly worth looking into, seems to range from £15 per injector to £50 per injector - quite the price range. Out of interest, does anyone happen to know what colour injectors a 96 850 T5 should have?

A valid point and something I will be sure to do.

Changed my heatercore on Friday. Greatly reduced the ammount of fogging in my car, plus no coolant smell anymore! I was freaking out for a bit as i almost lost the center screw that holds the pipes to the core.

It was my first service since replacing my head gasket, so I've also been monitoring the car alot, checking hoses etc.
