    Help! What are my options??

    I need some advice.
    My engine (1.4 - not sure exactly on code as i dont know how to find it) is slowly dying its death and sounds like absolute pants. (cancer relief ads would find it shocking). Anyway, seeing as my dad has mechanics who can help me fitting a new engine, i just need to find one at the right price ~ less than £200 pref.
    Can anybody tell me what i can go for. it needs to be a 1.4 due to insurance reasons but can i get one out of a corsa or other car or does it have to be out of a mk3 astra?
    Cheers any help much appreciated.

    You'll be lucky to find a good one for less than 200, saying that vaux recon engines are only around £400-500 trade? (some1 correct me if i'm wrong)

    age of car migh have helped but ill have a go, if its none injection its a 14NY and the corsa/nova 1989-93 has the same engine none catalist, if its injection i would need to know the engine code as there are a few C14SE/X14XE/X14NZ/ and its down to the injection system and bhp on each that makes the difference
