    Thought i'd stick my own post up

    well it all started over a week ago with my 98 astra sport 1.8 16v (x18xe1),firstly the timing belt snapped bending all 16 valves so after repairing this problem and all built up hassle free for a few days apart from a slightly hick at a steady speed,which i thought i could live with

    Then at the weekend it got alot worse to the point were it wouldnt let me drive the car,hesitated all the time,eml on,run like s**t!
    But as i was building the head up i noticed the cam sensor was a bit rough on the wiring so i replaced that to see if it would help but still no luck.
    Put it onto a tech 2 last night and came up with o2 sensor which i replaced today hoping that the problem will be sorted,but still no change anyone else had same problems if so any ideas as its got me beat!

    all help and advice appreciated
