    Default 2.2 sri engine rattle sorted

    got rattle sorted just in time. machanic removed casing to find runners smashed, tentioners broken and every other part round timing and balancer chains broken or worn with chains slapping around, even the oil feeder valve worn through. he couldnt believe how the car was still running.

    so all needed replaced 2x chain kits and a few other bits and pieces with service £700half what main dealer would have charged.
