Well I am not sure if anyone else is a little p##sed off with their engine on the 2.2 but I am getting close to flogging mine off its become that annoying
About 2 weeks ago a check engine light came on and it hasnt done this for 2 yrs and I never thought it would do it again inmy life time with the car?? but hey? ho? its not to be!!
I took it to my local specialist and the fault was read and consequently cleared and surprise surprise cam sensor (exactly the same fault that occurred 10 minutes into my ownership 2 yrs ago ) last time it was covered by warranty and the cam chain was explained to me as stretched and was replaced and the sensors also just incase?? and now it needs £1200 minimum to do the same thing again as this is the only way fix this ????????????
whhhhhatttttttttt!!! this car is 5 yrs old in january and really shouldnt need 2 cam chains in all of its 52000 miles off being used christ I had a saab 93 on a w plate that cleared 170000 miles and was still on its original chain and that was a 90s engineered turbo...
I have been informed the same asthe first occurrence that this is due to the sensor tolerence being far to low but why is that my fault and that the car would be fine and to carry on as normal but I have the annoying beep and check engine light EVERY TIME I use it aaaarggghhh!!
the car has no tail off in what little performance it has !! and there are no extra noises from the engine infact its as quiet as a mouse and i put the first ltr of oil in last week in the last 5000 miles which i think is acceptable and i use selenia star to boot!!
does any body have any suggestions other than to set fire to it and am I the only 1 ????
