UK Auto Repair Questions?
Thank you for your reply. I had a phone call from the garage last night that it was just the ecu and he'd fixed it, £130 plus vat, and said it was all good now. I literally drove to kettering and back and it packed in completely and sprayed oil which I now believe has reached the turbo and that is ruined. Its done 99000 nearly has always drove lovely, its completely standard.No fault lights and Id say more petrol fumes? Full service history. The original problem started couple of weeks ago but it drove ok just the smell and smoke at stand still. My friend found out that mk5 vxr's had problems with oil caps not closing properly and 3 clicks more could have solved it. I am as sure as I can be that since he mended it, and it wasnt and turbo could now be ruined, that he is liable. But my car is outside my house now undriveable. My reg is AY56 ZTR Thanks Ryan
Thank you for your brilliantly detailed reply. I will rate fully for you. But yes I would like to know how it can be fixed, will it be very expensive job in which case it might be better to get another car. Or as its such a good car is it worth fixing. Im not an engine man, so have no idea what will need to be done to fix it. Thanks Ryan
Thanks Mike, I kind of understand but would you be able to put it in more laman terms for me. I will happily rate and pay for you to do that. As I want it clear in my head before I speak to the mechanic. Also what is a s/h engine complete. Thanks Ryan
Lol second hand engine, I was very tired yesterday. If I fit second hand one, any engine problems gone, except if fault with ecu. If I change engine, or get it fixed properly will it affect value of car? I know my engine is the Z20LER. Thanks Mike much appreciated. Ryan
