    hi i'm new (astra van)

    hi all

    just picked up a astra van g 1.7 deisel (Y17DT), its a company van from new 51 plate its in nice condition BUT.... these always a but, the engine has died.
    it died at the lights, the guy who was driving it rolled it to the side of the road and waited for the tow truck.
    it was taken to the garage and the company was told the engine is jammed.
    the company did not want to spend the money on it so invested in a new van, and they sold it to me for £300,
    i got it home and started to strip the engine down, i've not got the head off yet but i'm sure its a valve touching a piston but why would this happen the cam belt is fine.. anyway any info would be great.. if not wish me luck.

    cheers
