    hi mate is it spining over slow or fast is it making any unusual noises wen turning over? ie are you 100% sure the timing chain is ok? is there a smell of fuel ie is it pumping fuel? when the car stoped did it make any noise just before it cut out as of codes it would need to be put on a tech 2 comp or op-com to get the codes off it mate where in glasgow are you?

    hi Gordy - i had breakdown cover so i got it towed to a local (non-Vx) garage.. i had to pay £50 to get the engine checked out and got told the bad news...

    hopefully your's isn't as bad as my car was... it cost approx £1700 to get it back on the road (and the fuel pump went 5weeks after that).

    Vauxhall were not interested and i've got a full service history with my car

    hi gordy i just sent you a pm with some 1s number but i dont know if he will come out to you or his garage is to far for you to travel to etc but it may be worth a shot failing that mate you could take the rocker cover off and turn the crank shaft and see if the chain moves at the top
