I own a 1.3 Astra and when its been idling for a while and warms up its gets smoky. Does this mean my piston rings are shot? If so is it worth getting it repaired or just changing the engine or as a last resort, getting rid of the car and getting a new one. I say last resort as i'm halfway thru modding the car and it has half the bodykit fitted and blended, and a new interior. So do i
A: Get the engine fixed. If so how much am i looking at?
B: Replace the engine. If so how much would i be looking at, and would it be worth upgrading the engine or keeping it as a 1.3?
Any help, info or suggestions are appreciated.
