As some of you may remember my G began running on 3 a couple of months ago. Since then I have been through 3 coil packs, 198764986 sets of spark plugs and £350 of bills from Vaux to "repair" the problem.
Last Monday I took it back to Vaux in Oldham as the problem had once again appeared. After they shoved it on Tech2 again this time they have decided that the engine ECU is knackered and a new one is required as "Spark plug Timing eproms are missing", I can give the fault code when I find the receipt, which to me sounds like a load of bollocks. Surely if these settings had wiped off the ECU it would be a permanant problem and not an intermittant thing that is cured with a coil pack change...
Anyway they said it would cost me another £685 to replace and fit the new ECU but after an arguement over me already paying them £350 to "fix" the problem and obviously them not holding up their side of the bargain they have offered to give me a 10% discount off the labour of the job .
Soooooo my questions are: -
Should I go with the above?
Should I tell them to go jump and complain to Vaux HQ and trading standards, leaving me with a knackered car?
Orrrrrrrr should I just get a new engine and drop it in which will probably be cheaper?
Any ideas or advice will be gratefully received.
