I've had her for 11 years, but she's died now.
Hi all, I've had my 2001 156 selespeed since new and she's only got 56000 miles on but now she may be dead.
The thermostat housing split into two and I lost all the coolant whilst doing 80ish, she then overheated and I got the dreadid knocking sound.
I was returning from a weekend in the Lakes and I had to get the AA to transport me home the last 122 miles, its so sad seeing your beauty being dragged onto the back of a truck.
I have started her for about 30 secs once we were back home and she had cooled down and it's running lumpy and knocks when you open the throttle, there's also an engine management light on.
Anyone got any idea how much it would cost to get the engine reconditioned, I'd like to keep my engine if I can. Is there anyone good to go to in Stafford or the midlands.
