Hi all, after a nice drive from Manchester back to Bolton, I got got to the end of the Motorway and heard a terrible sound.

The oil pressure light came on, the oil cooler temp shot through the roof, the car stalled, but would start again.

There is a terrible metallic clanking noise coming from the engine.

I think it is terminal, if this is the case, I am going to break it for parts as its probably worth more to you guys than me.

155 TS 16v Sport (RIP)

If it is a clonking that gets faster with revs, then it looks pretty much like your big end has gone.

Your crank will be scored, if you want to see for sure, take the sump off and have a look. Sorry to say it sounds exactly like what happened to mine when a bearing shell came out....

has anyone ever done a rebuild on one of these puppies?

If so was it pricey and a pain in the arse!

If so I'm gonna by a nice Honda Accord VTEC!

Regards

a crank re-grind needs to be done properly because the are nitrided and its expensive to have re-done.

I guess it's time to say goodbye to the old girl.

I can sell it if anyone's interested, there's some very good usable parts.

The cylinder head has been rebuilt, new valves, recon lifters, cams ok, brand new variator, new tensioner, new offside wishy.

I'll put in the for sale items.

CYA ALL

Really sorry to hear about your 155. :( :(

There are few enough 155's in Bolton as it is!

You don't really want to buy a Honda do you?? wink
