    Default 2.2 direct sounds like a diesel ???

    aye up guys and girls yesterday whilst driving the car ( 54 vec sri 2.2 direct petrol) i noticed that there was a lack of power, i decided to turn the radio down to have a listen and the car sounds like a right dog. it sounds like the tappets have gone but were not entirely sure checked the oil pump was working and it seems fine, any ideas???
    the car has full service, last serviced by my self 12 months (6500 miles) ago changed all filters and plugs used castrol magnatec 5w-30 oil only thing i didn't do was fuel filter. but all the above are being done on monday including fuel filter.
    ps the car has done 106000 miles. had new swirl valves and high pressure fuel pump about 18 months ago.

    any help greatly recieved cheers martin.

    Cam chain tensioner? If running like a dog, has the chain jumped a tooth or two?

    Stop driving it mate until you can guarantee its not the chain. VX recommend it doing at 100k but they really need doing around the 60 70k area. If the tensioner, guides or chain fails its goodbye engine.

    You'll have to get the cam cover off and have a look. Its quite a big job to change the whole thing and not a cheep job at the dealers. If you can find an indi to take it on just make sure they use a newer type VX chain kit.
