    Default Thought best introduce myself :)

    Hello, sorry took so long to finally introduce myself I have a silver 54 2.2 direct signum, loving it apart from the small problems I'm having

    my question is how long will this engine last for ? It's on 111k with full service history so looks like been looked after so apart from little Niggels is it worth putting money into and keeping it alive or is its life almost up

    hello and welcome mate,theres no reason why your engine wont last another 100k if its getting properly maintained,mind you these engines do suffer from timing chain issues and direct injection pumps are knowm to fail too hth

    111k is hardly run-in for these cars. Might be worth a timing chain change though? Sure it's the 2.2 directs that are prone to fail

    Callum: Welcome to the forum.

    allexx123: You should really start your own introduction thread.
    Also this is not the place to plug your website. While I'm sure it's probably quite interesting, I don't think the majority of folk on here will understand it anyway being written in Hindi (I think!)
