Broken crank case ventilation hose did cause similar symptoms in mine.
Atleast it's good to check all those hoses in engine bay.
Even if car works, replacing some broken hose may turn it better.

Partly true actually, now when i saw into it.
Cooling system parts are same in diesels also, but they run on lower pressure.
1,4BAR instead of 2BAR we have in gasoline engines.

It's same world wide.

Some replace cooling system before it broke, some replace it after it broke.
Plastic parts get fragile in age, and cooling system is stressing them heavily.

Right, normally those ball joints are the reason why to replace control arm, because those ball joints are ready pressed in factory.

Right, it's possible to mess your car so bad, that it doesn't work at all anymore, and then it got to be towed to the dealer, and you got to pay what they want for fixing it.
