Oops just read this all this thread.

1.4 manual :idea: :oops:

If it smells gassy, then it'll probably be the gear oil. :(
They think it's all over, it is now!

I have drove the car in to work today and it was fine. If you didn't know that there was a problem you would never know. I did have a tow rope on standby :wink: and the drive was only 1.5 miles.

It will remain at work until the weekend and if there are no takers arangements will be made for it to go to scrap. :cry:

Interested but seeing as I've just had to tax the truck and the MOT is up next month, the MOT is due on the Astra anyday now, the Frontera's AND the Astra's tax expires end of Feb and the Frontera MOT expires March I'm struggling a bit. On top of that I'm itching to get the Merc back otr. Had it MOT'd end of last year but didn't fancy taxing it until the weather gets nicer.
It doesn't mean I'm not interested in Gaz's car, far from it but finances are tighter than I thought. I have got rid of quite a few recently though (Metro went Monday evening btw) so I actually have some space. Just no money!

Just an update chaps. I have sold the car over the weekend. :cry: Not sure what the chap is going to do with it, he said he may strip it and e bay the bits or try and get it mobile again.
SHMBO and I have moved on to a Renault Megan (at least its French :lol: ).
I would like to take this chance to say a HUGE THANKS to every one who has offered advice and info on various issues in the past you are truly superb. I will continue to log on in the future to see if I can offer my two pence worth.
Once again THANK YOU ALL.
