GTV 2.0 TS Engine help!
Next problem.....It is knocking BADLY from pistons 3 or 4, sounds like crank or conrods on these cylinders! Head has to come off in the first instance and have a look, expect I will remove the complete engine but have a few questions;
Does anyone have anywhere I can buy manual or documentation on this engine (98 2.0TS) as I need to know a little more about it. I need to know how to remove and refit the cam belt and auxillary balance belt (think thats what it is)
What is best to do with the engine. Dont want to spend a fortune on it. Should I Ebay a replacemaent engine, seen them for about £300 complete or should I go down the strip and re manufacture the exsisitng one? It onle has 88K miles but was always a little tappy and used oil.
Any good shops, suppliers, ideas appreciated.
Again, thanks for all the help, quite looking forward to the strip and repair!
