Been struggling with the eml on my mk4 astra 1.6 sxi for ages so bit the bullet today and took it to vauxhall to be looked at, Thats where my trouble has started, I apparently need a new ecu for which they quoted £690 fitted, ive rung ariund and managed to get someone who will supply and fit for £220, However Vauxhall have founf loads of other stuff wroong with the car:
oil leak from under bonnet g/box diff pan - £105.56
oil leak from under bonnet sump gskt and crank sensor - £200.10
Discs and pads front - £193.29
Exhaust - complete system worn - damaged centre box and no clamp holding back box - £568.02
Shick absorbers front - /damaged o/s/f causing spring carrier to rub on link rod badly bent (may not be only bent part) - £342.51
Gotta say im gutted only had the car 6 months, vauxhall mechanic said looks like its been involved in a bump before i bought it and basically told me it will cost me more to get all faults fixed than its worth
What does any onje else think?? does anyone know a good mechanic in the Bolton area that would do the work alot cheaper than main dealer??
