2004 BA Ute LPG Blew up
Car: 2004 BA Space CAB ute on LPG / Petrol Dual fuel
As many of you may know they have a tendency to backfire on gas, well accelerating out of a corner yesterday it backfired and then had a nasty loud ticking metallic noise so i pull over turn it off straight away, open the bonnet and the air box has the side blown out of it so im like ok.... try to start it, it starts runs on 6 cylinders but has very bad metallic clunking in the top end.
I have taken it to my mechanic and he says that it sounds like a bent valve, he says if it is it will cost about 2k AUD to repair does this sound right ? how much does a new motor cost generally ....
is it worth running on lfg and risking this happen again the ute only has 133,000km on it approx...
i hate cars :(
