My fourth topic in Carnage Corner. I feel so special.

If you want to see a V6 horror story, watch this YouTube vid. Engine out time. Yay.

I'm a bit fuzzy about what could be going on here, Cloverleaf..

Me too. When it happened I felt the power loss from one bank at least. I suspect the cambelt tensioner, but I won't be able to tell properly until it's out. I think the impact you can hear is piston vs valve, but am not sure.

It's a GTV so the engine has to come out even to take the heads off.

I have very little room to work, so it is as much a logistical challenge as anything else. Sigh.

I've bought a German 1999 QV rival as a daily until it's fixed. Yuk!

Can't easily get the engine out yet so out of curiosity got out the boreoscope.

This pile of metal was down cylinder 1... blink.gif

I can see this getting expensive... eek.gif
