Hi guys, i dont use this forum much but a friend of mine has asked me to post up a thread about his Astra woes....
Ill give you guys the run down, basically my mate owns a 2002 Astra 1.6 16v The car has developed a problem where it intermittently will cut out, the engine is fine and had a healthy life as far as we know but it seems to not want to play ball from time to time - dangerous amongst other things.
Now after a frivolous search for a mechanic that can diagnose faults we are now assuming its a problem with the wiring loom, it would seem thats where this has stemmed from (my guess was a crank sensor or fuelling issue but that doesnt seem to be the case...)
Anyway, as im aware being semi hands on with cars that a wiring loom is a pain in the tits to negotiate, would it be worth while to sell the car as is in the sense that the engine gearbox and anything else (everything works) must be worth a couple of hundread quid if someone were to break it for parts?
Would would the Astra community adivse?
The cars located in Glasgow and any sort of inspection/test drive/look around would be more than welcomed. (Sorry if this is in the wrong place aswell )
Kind Regards, Danny
