Oh page bookmarked. That's a bit cheaper all right. Thanks again!! Actually funny you should ask, the mechanic said this morning that if I don't go "revving the nuts off it" it could last a month. Which is definitely good news. A month is breathing space, so I'll take the chance. (and a trip to the credit union)
The symptoms are a clunky knocking in the Engine, lots of vibration, and the odd kick from the clutch when changing gears.
There are two problems with changing, it would be very hard to sell a big petrol engined car especially with a known issue, and what car would you get after that wouldn't be a let down?!
