just bought above for wife, struggling starting so i did all the things i could find on your forum (which is very inforrmative thanks alot)
got it starting ok, next day started it let it idle for a few mins while i had diagnostic on it. next was very unpleasant , crash bang wallop timing chain had slipped, basically mechanic took a look and confirmed i need a full new engine.(car has done 6 miles since i bought it her)
its a 16v y20dth, finding one is proving difficult, my question is can i put a 8v y20dth in ok? or even a 2.2 diesel engine in it.
engine i get will have pump and injectors so can i get replaced and turn the key or do i need to start getting stuff coded?
also how much loss of power from 16v to 8v and how much more power from the y20dth 16v to a 2.2 diesel?
thanks very much for any help wifes killing me to get car back running,
