Re: Urgently need you help,views! what you would have done
mine bent all the valves, smashed 8 guides and damaged the head itself, cost was £1400 to put right...
might be worth trying for a new engine tho, a 2.0TS engine can be had for around £750 from ebay CLICK HERE
or a 1.8TS engine for £500 CLICK HERE
however given the choice id want the 2.0 put in! must consider insurance when you that route tho.
for that price id keep it. if the garage does the repairs i see no reason you should sell her, i thought the same when mine went but kept in the end and im really glad i did, shes running like a dream now.
hope you get her sorted mate.
