    Vehicle : Vectra Estate 2.2 SRI AUTO

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 2.2i direct

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 22000

    Default New Engine REQUIRED 2.2 SRI 2007

    Hello,

    Received the dreaded news from the garage that the reason the car wasn't starting was that there was low/no compression and the drive chain has slipped 5 teeth. There is likely piston damage from attempts to start the car.

    The car is 2007 reg with low mid 60k miles, 2.2 direct SRI.

    Before considering selling for parts I am searching for a replacement engine as are the garage.

    If anybody has knowledge of one in the Yorkshire area please let me know for consideration.

    Thanks

    Keith

    Not necessarily. More likely bent valves. Surely it won't take long to whip off the head to check? Might just need a refurbed / reconditioned head.

    Some garages these days like to take the easy / lazy route, rather than working on an engine.
