What a noise it made!! Bang clatter clatter clatter..
Well my bargain 156 sportwagon sellespeed just died..!!
It lasted 2 weeks..
I'm guessing at that speed (about 3.5k revs in 5th) I have caused major valve or cam damage.
Also the Sellespeed and transmission light are now flashing at me and obviously it will not start.
About 5 miles before it went it sounded like the exhaust was blowing slightly, making a buzzing/booming sound, must of been the timing that was out as the belt was weakening I assume.
I'm a bit mythed as it was only done 6k ago (although it was 2 years ago) and that was from a cambelt snap at 50k... What a mess.
So the car is now sitting abandoned on the outskirts of the town I live..
Such a shame, its a beauty; leather, sellespeed, sportwagon... I'm a bit sad..
Is it worth fixing? I only paid 500pound for it as it was a mates car who never used it as he never trusted it after its first cambelt snapped. I should have listened to him.
