HELP!! Engine knackered - need new one

It's my first time on here and under difficult circumstances.

The engine on my 156 2.0 Selespeed 'Y' 2001 blew up last night. I first started noticing a knocking noise but got to my destination ok. The AA attended and advised it was a non-runner. He also said that at best it was the 'shells' that were damaged and at worst a new engine.

This is the second engine I have gone through and am now trying to limit the financial damage.

As it looks likely that I will need a new engine does anyone know of a good, reputable supplier that can supply a new engine for me? I live near Wokingham, Berkshire.

Answered this on the other forum you posted to .....

Won't be cheap whether you go for new or recon or rebuild (latter probably cheapest).

But suggest you try:

AlfaAid Maidhenhead 01628 788887

L&M High Wycombe 01494 538899 (they had a recon 2.0TS engine for sale recently)

Knocking noise? Sounds like the piston flopping about the cilinder. Could just be a shafted piston ring from oil starvation. You would need new piston rings along with a rectifying scraper but it might be worth at least taking the head off and checking the damage before going drastic.
