Strange reason for wanting the message in english. English isn't the only
Try babelfish or some similar service, if you don't understand the original
message. It gives: "Someone you would know to me to say if it has found
problems with C3 HDI 16V"
Met alle respect voor deze/jouw nieuwsgroep, maar ik volg heel wat
nieuwsgroepen en heb echt geen zin om alle mogelijke vertaalmachines toe te
passen. Tot nu toe was het ook niet echt nodig.
En de krakkemikkige vertaling van babelfish maakt me ook niet echt vrolijk,
zeker niet als het gaat om technische zaken.
Thank you DJ for your view.
As you know, nobody owns this newsgroup and this newsgroup is for anybody
that wants to share Cit stuff.
That language thing is something you are right about. English is the
My suggestion to add a language tag into the subject line works well as you
can see in the geocaching group. If you do not speak the language you skip
One thing to remember is that this newsgroup is close to being dead and whe
should welcome any on-topic posting in any language. If possible we could
persuade people to use that language tag.
I am glad you follow this group and I hope we will see many on-topic
Now my question.
Nowadays I am driving a Xantia HDI 90hp break. An excelent car but.......
I know that the HDI-engine has a very high, what is the right word,
rendement? But because of that the heater is working poor.
What can I do to get a good temperature inside the car. In earlier times
people used a shield in front of radiator to warm up faster.

The world is much richer than English, German and French. Still within the
european sphere of languages, Spanish is extremely wide-spread. With
knowledge of French you should be able to find out what the original mesage
in Italian was about - I could.
But there is a world outside europe, where billions of people speak (and
read) neither of these languages.
If you post in Frisian, tant-pis pour toi. You will reach very few people
and get very few answers. And that is a good reason for choosing english.
But that was not what you wrote.
I made my point, we are off-topic, and I won't continue the debate here.
The dad of Levy Citroen originates from the Netherlands, he was the one that
