    Default 2.2 Direct

    I'm thinking of going automatic for my next Veccie, i've read stories about the 2.2 direct stretching chains, becoming rattly and fuel pumps needing replacing at £400 a pop. Are they all this bad and whats the mpg like? Most of my trips are m/way (80%) and are the auto's in say a 06/56 all sorted now with regards to the water oil mixing problems. Thanks.

    Read my post today about my recent problems. How ever when they go they are really good to drive, never had any problems with the chain stretching (yet, touch wood) Consumption when the swirl valves don't go is about early to mid forty on a long run and about 33-35 around the doors if driven sensibly.

    Just loved mine when it was going as it should do.
