    what to do with engine rebuilt or replace?

    Im im two minds what to do with the astra as the engine and gearbox are starting to get up on it ?


    im dont know weather to rebuilt the engine or weather to stich another x14xe engine in it or a early 1.8 in it ?


    but would it be worth it as the shell has done 130k ?

    opinions!??

    130k is nothing. Unless you have issues leave it be and put some money away for a larger engine next year

    Fair enough - unsure myself if this is a gearbox or other issue though, e.g. clutch?

    My car does the same, and its alot newer than yours with far fewer miles. Compared to Ash's Astra, I think the clutch on mine is pretty much ****ed. Difficult to select 1st gear sometimes.
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall
