    Default OUCH! just had a quote from the stealers

    Car(2.2 ELEGANCE petrol) has been poorly for some time different places told me different things had the coil pack changed etc..But now at last according to the dealers it is a tensioner that jumps and 2 timing chains that have jumped a chain no other major damage done,but its going to need 2 chains and a couple of gaskets parts costing around £200 quid but the labour is looking about £800 ! Anyone know any cheaper places near to me,and im due to go on holiday in the car on monday!

    who's Dean??..

    lets just say it's quite a big job, so a 'private' job should cost about a days graft.. so £200 labour plus parts??..
