OWNED IT FOR 4 MONTHS..IT STARTED TO PINK A BIT AROUND A WEEK AGO, TOOK IT TO FORD, THEY PUT IT ON THERE **** DIO MACHINE AND GUESS WHAT "THERE NOTHING UP WITH IT" THEY SAID...CAME TO START THE CAR YESTERDAY, WONT ****** START NOW....FORD CAME OUT AND PICKED IT UP...HAD IT ALL DAY THEN RANG TO SAY THE TIMING CHAIN HAD MAYBE MOVED A TOOTH? BUT THEY WERENT SURE, IT MIGHT HAVE DAMAGED THE VALVES, CAM CASE CARRIER..AND ALSO THE HEAD, OH AND IF ITS HIT THE PISTONS YOU COULD NEED A NEW ENGINE!!! AROUND £4000+.... WHAT SORT OF REPORT IS THIS..THEY HAVE NOT EVEN DONE A COMP TEST ON IT SO HOW DO THEY KNOW WHATS WRONG WITH IT....HAS ANYBODY ELSE HAD THIS SORT OF PROBLEM.
THE CARS DONE 105,000. SERVICED ALL ITS LIFE.

I think there could be more reasonable solution to your problem than a new engine, in regards to the timing - can't see it failing myself?

I can't offer you any more advice I'm afraid, your best bet is having a browse on www.stdrivers.co.uk - lots of diesel owners on that site.
