It’s getting picked up tomorrow.
I’ll know exactly what it is once they get stuck in (engine needs reconditioning), but I suspect shot crank bearing and maybe oil pump.

These engines are generally really reliable, looks like I got unlucky. Reconditioning company is charging £1800, which is a lot better than hyundai’s 6k+vat for a recon swap in.

Good choice Max, my Citroen Dispatch is great. The fuel stats are a bit exaggerated but I got 45.9 mpg driving to Tiree, round the island for a month and back, which is not bad. Fun to drive too.
