My 1.8 Zetec made a funny noise when hot, so took it to the garage. After checking the lifters and changing the chain, it has been found that the Big End bearings are completely shot!

It turns out that you can't get shells for the lower engine and that a short block is the only answer! wtf! Thsi is about a grand
+ labour and other bits!

I think my cmax will be off as soon as I can get shot of the wretched thing. Got to say, it has been one of the most unreliable and problomatic car I have ever owned!

Volvo here I come I think!
