may seem like a silly question but what does a big end going wrong sound like? I have a few odd knocks, squeeks and tappings on me ol' girl when she warms up, runs a treat mind but its always good to know if something is about to explode!?
It's a terrible knocking sound, it's been drinking oil at an alarming rate for some time now, I knew something was up. My mechanic diagnosed it, it's not a pleasant noise. Definitley doesn't go away once it's warmed up, infact it gets worse!
Can't you find a nice 156 engine to drop in it ?
I could, but to be honest I want to move on and get another car. It's costly having a new engine fitted, and I don't hve the time, patience or skills to do it myself.
Not a lot I'm afraid....running with an MOT and reasonable condition seems to sit around £600 on EBAY if you're lucky...a lot less if you're not - seems absolute nuts to me
£600 sounds more than I would've thought! It's got an MOT until April, unfortunately the tax has just run out on it.
It's been a couple of weeks now since the problems started, I've had a long and hard think and decided I want to sell it and move on. My only concern is that I hope it goes to a good home, as like I said it's in pretty good nick (except for the engine
Is Ebay the best place to stick it then, and what sort of starting bid would be realistic?
