Hello, I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
I would like an answer within the next 24 hrs since I have some decisions to make
Hello, Thank you for getting back to me. We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you. Thank you for your patience, Shantal
Mileage is 107,000
The garage that it was taken too initially say :- Check for poor running. Remove spark plugs and check and find plugs have failed. Supply and fit 6 new spark plugs. Carry out oil and filter change. Road test and vehicle overheated. Carry out engine block test and found headgaskets failed and compression low.
Yes its a 3.5 long wheelbase.
No warning lights came up on the car prior to stopping on the motorway only pinking under strain which is why we stopped.
Thanks for that.
I guess my basic question is. Having done only 1,000 local miles in 6 months is it reasonable to say that the fault, whatever it is, was a pre-existing condition when I bought it bearing in mind the garage serviced the car prior to collection.
