can anyone give me some advice, basically it as been suggested the bottom end is knocking on my 2.0 ltr t.s gtv. 71,000 miles.
the previous owner informed the cambelt went on him and he had it repaired, i have owned the car 12 months and this loud knocking noise as been present for approx 11 months, it doesnt seem to be getting worse, the car as never let me down, and isnt overheating.
i have taken it to my local italia garage, and he said it could be the bottom end but without stripping head etc he couldnt be sure.
what i want to know is if it is the bottom end how much am i looking at to repair it. (surely if it was bottom end it would have gone by now)
thanks in advance.
