    Step Daughters and cars !!

    Sorry for asking folks but has anybody got any idea where I could pick up a Veccy 2.2 engine, it seems that my Step Daughter has been driving her SRi 150 whilst the cam-chain has gone (don't ask me how !!!) - the wife got a lift in the car last week and she said then the ride was terrible, real lumpy and not sounding at all well.

    She's thrown a right wobbly and of course it's everybody else' fault. Any pointers would be helpful, I've tried calling Vauxhall Performance Spares Centre (Essex) but they must be shut for the holiday period (no pick up when ringing earlier).

    Cheers

    if the chain was snapped fella the car wouldnt be going anywhere trust me, it wouldnt run at all and trying to run it will make things worse, if the chain has snapped chances are youve done the valves and the engine needs stripping down, once the chain snaps thats the end of your engine fella its Big ££££ to fix unless you can do it yourself

    could always try find a part use them at the old mans garage quite a bit if were doing a cheap job for a mate main thing is the cost of the call charge a fortune per minute because they make there money through the phone calls

    does the 2.2 use a dis pack like the v6 did - lumpyness and sounding rough has similar symptoms from what your saying - when the dis pack went on my v6 it was lumpy on idle, had no go in it and sorta sounded scooby ish as it wasnt running on all its cylinders

    That option / avenue you mention might be worth investigating 888rich, thanks.
