Help with LS1
I know this is Fordforum but we have a few people with LS1's come over for a read from time to time.
Mate of mine has a auto VX2 SS with 30,000km which he brought brand new and it rattles and burns about 3lts of oil every 5,000km. I told him ages ago to take it back and ask for a rebuild, he did the other day to his dealer in Perth and they said that it was all normal and they would put a thicker oil in (which he would have to pay for)
The engine is suffering from major piston slap and this dealer tells him it's normal and fobbed him off. He told them he wants a rebuild and they just said "What for? there is nothing wrong with your engine"
What should he do?
Car's I have owned. First car purchased in July 1994, in order of ownership.
