Jesus, that's annoying. So sorry for Steve, you spend all that money, that shouldn't happen in a mass produced item. Hardly a big rib being thrashed.
Any chance it's happened from being towed so far? Did it bounce all the way to Scotland and weaken it? Was it on a chock? I dont know, just thinking how it could happen.
Is it just my perception or has nearly every etec owner on here had problems? All those I know have had a variety of problems.
David Griffiths, kerny, 1978searider, rocknrolla. All have had their fair share on new engines.
Yet I have heard of no problems from Suzuki 4S owners. Credit where credit's due.
Merc/mariner optis were awful when first released in 2002 ish but problems seem to have been ironed out. Are etec in the same position?
Who knows. Just hope this is sorted for you Steve.
