The heart of the EA might be dead

Well as some know, The EA has been droping oil pressure and the cam started chewing out the head due to a cracked rocker pedestal. Well after all the repaires there is still no oild pressure and there is a knock in the engine around the number 3 exhaust valve. So its off to the machanics.

Re: The heart of the EA might be dead

not the mechanics .... sounding serious, hope its nothing terminal, and the why it happened in the first place gets answered as well.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: The heart of the EA might be dead

Once I find out how much tax I get back tommrow, will decide which engine I get, if it is fully stuffed. AU EL or EF maybe ED/EB xr6.

Re: The heart of the EA might be dead

Go the EA....some sick c*nt around here was selling one for a excellent price...

BTW while were on engine destroying, I let my car get a bit hot today because I've got the thermos in dodgily atm (until I get a temp switch). I hope I didn't cook anything! I saw the gauge when it was about 2mm from the red and though shhheeeezzus. It takes a lot to cook 'em though...I know first hand. It took about 20km in the red with the light on (done over 2 years) for my Mum's engine to finally give up the ghost at 370,000km lol.
