    best way of setting fire to a car

    Right Im going to get a jerry can and some matches and torch my motor, dam sik of it now, no matter how much money I throw at it still f**ks up.
    My car is service by vauxhall every 12 months, it has a full oil and filter change every 6 months, a mini service every 6 months the plugs are chaged at 20k its really looked after engine wise and shouldnt keep packing up, checked the oil last night to find not a drop in there now only 4k ago it had been changed and filled and checked a week and half ago.
    and there was just under the max in there.
    Now I filled it back up last night, to find this morning when I come back in a patch of oil on the floor, closer to inspection had found the reasen why I hadnt noticed. the oil had run into a gap in the slab missing the slab, only noticed today because a Imoved the car back a touch to find a screw I had dropped.
    I was working out the days I have been with out my car and in three years 7 months in ttal I have been with out it because of warranty work and bodyshops.
    Its a piss take, if I hadnt have put so much money into it I would have let it go, but if I sell it well I will get piss all for it.
    Just a rant, but I like vauxhalls but I doubt I will ever buy another after the greif I have had with my last 2.

    Brett - bite the bullet severely now.

    Get the bodywork tip top, as you want it, get the interior as you want and spend some more cash getting another engine.
    I was told i mad going down the route I did, but its yet to fail on me. Its kept me interested in my car, and I would struggle to sell it now i reckon as its perfect imo.

    Chap, im trying to find some more out about a conversion and what it will entail as this part now I have to stand back and let someone else take over.
    because the car aint being used as much I was looking at a C20LET, but really wanted to tune the 1.6 with throttle boddies ect, but to be fair if the engine aint holding out in standard form then tuning s a waste of time and money. need to consider my options. as long as I can get the motor road worthy before the first shows I would be pleases, but its looking doubtfull.
