    Default 1.9 tdci (120) engine change

    Hoping someone could help me with a rough idea how much I'd be charged to have the engine on my vectra changed? I'm in the Nottingham area and would be looking for supply of a second hand engine as well.

    One of the bigends has gone on mine, not sure how as only done 94K and oil has been changed every 6K since i'VE HAD IT FOR THE LASTve had it for the last 20K.

    Deciding weather to cut my losses or have the work done, loathed to just scrap it as It's just had two new tyres (£220), cam belt, water pump and aux belts done.

    Thanks for help.

    Charastic big end knock, dropped the oil and found tiny little bits of metal in the oil when I dropped it. Would have dropped the sump to confirm 100%, but not spending 8 hrs doing that when I know that's the problem.

    Hi, If your considering removing the sump wouldn't it be possible to replace the bearing shells from underneath the car - although I suppose it depends on the condition of the crankshaft itself. Be a lot cheaper than replacing the whole engine

    That's what I was considering as I've done it on a 1.3 Astra I had 15 yrs ago. Such an epic job to get sump off, would still have to find the reason for failure and risk doing it all for nothing if serious damage has been done to the journal.

    It's either engine change or ebay spares/repairs for someonewho has the time.
