    Default hello everyone, im new

    Been told today by vaux technitions that it needs a new timing chain. it has low oil pressure and that its going to need a new ecu of some kind because the speedo sometimes stops responding,

    what are your opinions, fix it or agree ive bought a dog and try and get rid???

    Welcome to the site and hope everything works out ok. These repairs might work out expensive.
