need more info, age and what engine petrol or dieselHi Guys,
Hope you can help me. I've done a few trips in the car today and now all of a sudden it won't start. It try's to turn over but it wont. Had the AA man out to help but he looked in the oil cap and said the top of the engine isn't turning when trying to start the car. So the timing chain has either snapped or come off. Could this just happen after turning the car off.
Is this a common fault with these.
It has been making a noise when staring lately but only for about 2 seconds but I just thought it was where oil hadn't got to the top of the engine.
If it is the chain what sort of price am I looking at to get it fixed.
