thanks for nice review etc , I do my best to be right by owners and their cars ,, you sure you dont want a Sandero as well lolI cant recommend Mike highly enough.
He has kept me informed with videos everyday of progress and any problems encountered.
Followed up by, sometimes expensive, phone calls, messages etc.
Doing a top job.
Hopefully, 🤞 pickup this Saturday.
Dacia can keep their Sandero.
tomorrow afternoon had to wait for a gasket today before could fit turbo back slowed things, nearly there just inlet manifold to do . and fill with coolant and then it will be running ,,Ohoooh! I haven't even got started yet.
Is today first start day? Or is that tomorrow.
This week is going so slooooooow.
I want it to be Saturday NOW.
have messaged youHi Mike,
Have followed a number of your builds, very impressed. I have a 2010 1.6 Cooper (not S) that has 115000 miles and has started mis-firing (again). I have replaced cam chain and guides and also valve stem seals myself at about 110000k. Have to admit I was on a budget and used cheap ebay parts.
I noticed a slight rattle for about 5-8 secs on start up about 3 weeks ago, now it has full-on misfire cyl 4. Going to check basics tomorrow, plugs and coil packs and have valve cover off to look around . I suspect it will not anything simple as I replaced plugs at 11k as 2 of the plugs were covered in hard black deposit so no gap. Can you PM me about your refresh service?
