    Default Water Pump died.

    Hi all,

    The water pump packed in on my Dads 52 plate 1.8 vectra (ls). Unfortuanetly it has caused the timing to go and has apparantly damaged the head (although they fitted a new pump before saying this?!?)

    He's been quoted £3k to get it back on the road (inc pump and a refurb engine with warantee from Vx) but I can't help thinking this is more than the cars worth, and he should take whatever he can as scrap value and cut his losses (otherwise the car is; touch wood - probably ok - recently had new tires and front springs/dampers - only the electric mirror switch is a bit faulty).

    The dealer said you can't get a new head for this engine and hence why a whole new engine is required.

    Just wondering if there are any other possibilities out there - thought about a scrap engine but I beleive they changed the 1.8 engine so a recent one from a rear end right off would not fit with all the electronics etc, and anything older you take a gamble on how it's been driven with no warantee.
