After three weeks of not having a car, my little car is finally mended and back up and running!
It was all down to the cam belt breaking, the pistons hit the valves, and six out of eight valves got bent!
I got the new valves and head gasket set off eBay for £51.50 including postage, and dad fitted it this weekend!
And here’s my car parked outside my house
The timing belt on my car broke on the way to work this morning, it happened just as I was going on to the slip road off the motorway.
I managed to get the car on to a lay-by, and then I had walk the rest of the way to work – it wasn’t that far.
Dad then towed my car to his work place to have a look at it, he phoned me to tell me what was wrong.
He got a new belt and fitted it, but the engine won’t start again, it’s knackered.
Thats the end of the road for my car, and I don’t have any photo’s of it!
