    Arrow £400 damn thats a set of wheels...Grrrr

    thanks.. Im not sure if mine needs be changed but its worrying as i keep hearing these 2.2's engines keep going pop when they brake...

    Whats the best way to avoid this from happening ffoeg?


    my car was a network q car do you reckon they would of changed it at all mate, im not sure if they chaged it due to that oil flow blocking problem people seemed to have suffered from.

    Mine is a 2001 but i dont have a scooby doo as to what to look for, or how to tell.

    Firstly, check to see if your's has the modified chain and oil lube nozzel........here's how - http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.php?p=559083.

    Then does you car have a full service history and can you see that oil changes hace been made at the correct times, ie less than 20,000mile intervals?

    If it's yes to both the above than you can relax, as it will most probably be OK.
