Hi Guys. It's been so long since I was here that I forgot my dang id ! Had to register a new one... LOL
Anyway, don't know why I'm laughing, 'cos I'm crying inside.....
Went to the 2.5ic today to drop my son at the airport. I turnthe key and it like fires once before dying. Weird, always always starts first turn. So second turn of the key... No compression !! whine whine whine.
Oh man, I don't need this. We are supposed to be flying to the States next weekend, I don't have much time or money to address this
The belts are turning, so the crank's rotating. And there was no mechanical noise before, during or after the failure.
I'm thinking that the timing chain has bust [?]. Or is there maybe a de-compressor on this motor which could be stuck open ?
I sure hope somebody can help me, I'm starting to lose it here
Just thought of another question. Is this motor "safe" with respect to the valve/piston clearence ? (Fingers crossed here)
