    gutted i spent a bomb!

    had a new cam belt, waterpump, door pins/hinges fitted on wednesday (£413 ) and i looked at the old cam belt and it looked pritty new but at least i know when it was changed last now!!


    so now all the annoying bits are fine and the cars sorted time to clear my debts and on with the modding - been busy over the last week getting a deal on a engine swap for a V6 and its ready for when i have the cash all i need now is to hammer the overtime ( or get a better job ) to clear the debt and to make the wee dis-astra a sleeper

    Glad you got it all sorted now, and looks like the V6 is well on track aswell.

    lookers in ellesmere port im going to star doing work myself! may take me years to get my finger out and do it but will save me money!! i couldnt do the cam belt myself tho

    v6 is well on its way just need to look into super chargers now and adding 3ltr cams etc want over 200bhp and enough torque to pull a house down!

    Maybe it was, and you either didnt clean the area properly or didnt torque it up properly.

    Glad you got all that sorted, at least you know everything should be ok.

    I'm getting my cambelt changed today just in case it decides to go on the way to PV its only costing me about £60 all in tho!!

    I still don't see why your 'gutted' ??

    you've spent money on the car (maintenance), and planned more mods.
    That's a reason to be happy isn't it !

    as its a fair bit of cash to young people like me. put it this way i could of either fixed my car or had the new engine fitted for that but as i havent the cash to uprate the brakes / suspention i fixed the 2ltr
