To you short version of vans history born november 2000 mot november 2009 states 9500 miles dvla states last mot november 2009 9500 miles van dissapears of map i get it november 2011 as scrap milage 104k
engine runs but poor starter due to plug duff and slight water loss blown turbo and burning oil
replaced head and turbo with one from a 1998 abl new head gasket reset timing put it all back in .
fired up first time small air bubbles in reservoir then masive gurgles and a volcano no oil in water no water in oil
next door neighbour a machanic says either water pump or head gasket
As much as i dont want to give in i have a 2.4 aab that i know works but has big milage.
So open to advice:*
