totally lost engine due to bad sparks
hi guys I'just want to warn you what happens when you don't change the sparks.
Yesterday I went to my brother who has an 147 2.0l TS Selespeed. He told me his engine didn't run smooth anymore and he didn't dare to run off with it. Once I arrived there I did a Compression test and what we discovered was a horror. No more compression on cylinder 3.
So I opened the engine and what I saw was that the 3rd cylinder is broken (the thing where the head goes up and down in sorry but i don't know the english name). Bits out of it and that on an engine who had only run for 81000 km. As a result he can change his engine and that will cost him 1000 euro!!!! He only has to buy an engine and I'll put it in.
All that due to not changing his spark after 40000 km (cost about 80 euro). It is known that that bad ignition and combustion can lead (read often results) to a totally broken engine.
So be warned and change the sparks when needed so you don't get in the same mess as my brother does.
